Restoration practice - a bit stuck

Downloaded from the Library of Congress archive (ref no 3c09844) to practice on. I've made some progress, but now realize the work I've done around the arms doesn't look right because I think his arms were resting on a desk or something. I can easily go back and bring that part back in, but just wondered what would people suggest would be best way to reconstruct that bottom part of the picture.

Also seem to have messed up the aspect ratio on import/export somewhere, never mind that , (the tif I'm working on looks ok in photoshop.)

Why not simply move the arm so that his hand is resting at his side/hip? If you move it at the elbow it will look like a natural bend.

nice job, but was the pic enlarged horizontally? the face and body seems wider? I have found a modest 3 - 5% enlargement is not to noticeable. Sometimes enlarging in increments is better than a straight 5% enlargement.

Hey thanks, that actually works really well. I think I'll finish the image up with that effect.
I just need to rebuild part of the collar area and it's done then. Cheers

Nazca - yes for some reason the aspect ratio changed when I saved a copy, this was just to show progress so I didnt fix it at the time.
