I have a feeling this question will be hard to answer sans images, but is there a way to tell when adding something is too extraneous? Because there's an element I've had in the plans since the beginning but now I'm not sure if it works as well now. The confusion is because I've been working on this for a week and I'm not sure if I'm legitimately finding the element as distracting or if I'm just at the point where I want this to be done.
tldr: Is there a way to tell when an image is done?

That's interesting, though honestly I'm not sure that I see the benefit of observing a live model on a computer screen. You get none of the benefits of actual life drawing from a model, like the ability to see the model from various angles, or the chance to practice translating the 3-dimensional depth of reality onto a 2D plane. If the model is decent (i.e. they can sit still) then it sounds indistinguishable from drawing from digital photo reference. All that said, drawing from a webcam model might be useful simply for adding structure and pace to your virtual life drawing session.
