Checking your Progress When Painting Multiple Faces in Oil

I have gone over the entire face looking for any differences from my photo references.  If you are not sure of something, it doesn't hurt to remeasure and correct before you move on.  Stand back and analyse -

Is the light source the same throughout the painting?
Are the colours, shadows and highlights consistent with the other faces?
Do I have the right amount of reflective light from the surrounding figures and clothes when they are done?
Are the edges correct - soft and hard?
Most importantly, is that Khye?
