Instead of continuing to fudge around with that, I went up and as you can see, I'm going to circle down back to it. I'll wait till I get that in before I go about fudging with the area I am not happy with. This section is causing me a bit of anxiety at the moment. Sometimes in a ref. pic with a hot, sparkling eye... you get that eye but there is a price to pay of some out of focus, indistinct, areas that may come along with it as is the case here.
Because of this anxiety, I am having trouble getting started again. Young People: If this happens to you, think of your favorite song of the moment, go hunt that down on youtube and then you'll feel better.
I picked this one for myself because it's just plain funny
