Strange, that's how I invisioned it as well. Doing away with the verticles that run off of the top edge, that is.

Thanks, Max.
I have tried everything in the world and am still not happy with this comp. I appreciate everyone's input. I have changed the composition quite a bit. It felt like we were seeing just enough of a chair for it to be an important compositional element but not enough of the chair to be truly satisfying and unifying.
I took new photos of the model and have something that I think will be more easy on the eyes.
I'll post it in WIP soon. Thanks, again, everyone! I've learned a few things by this one!

I do not want anyone to feel that their input hasn't been heeded. On the contrary, that is why I started from scratch again. I think this is a stronger composition, as long as I keep the darks dark and the lights light. Right now I am applying layers of color, trying to keep the whole thing unified at first.
I'll post this and the reference photo in WIP soon.
Again, thank you all for helping me to rethink the composition.
