When I'm closer to being done I will scan both the button and the photo and put them on the computer screen and leave them there for a while and keep looking at all the details.
Sometimes I find I have to remove or replace one or both eyes or a nose but here the changes to be made are very minor and I'm happy.
I'll tell you what I see:
Change the shape of the left ear
Forehead a little higher
Several tiny changes to left eye
Reshape the neck area.
The very last step is fine tuning the fur..
It feels good to be painting again and I must start regularly as my supply of buttons for sale is so low. I have to either do it or give up Etsy as it has been so long they have changed the site and I had a devil of a time figuring it out. I have been making a list of new ones to paint... I just painted a special order for a clown and now I'd like to do a few more... I have one more special order to do then start on my list.
