Using a small shaving mirror to occasionally inspect your work-in-progress will act like a fresh pair of eyes; mistakes and irregularities will often suddenly come into focus: perhaps the starboard wingtip wider than the port and you just hadn’t noticed. You may have already decided that there’s something¬†wrong with your painting or drawing, but just cannot put your finger on it… well this old trick can help.

Failing this, looking at the picture upside down for a little while can also reveal the problem and may also be a good thing to do in any case when painting from photographic references, since you’re looking at objects from a completely unfamiliar perspective.
