vcg leak

"so I just recently replaced my valve cover gasket because I was leaking oil. however it is still leaking. I usually have a lot of oil on top of my oil filter housing, do you think it is my oil filter gasket leaking? is there any other way to tell what the leaking is from. it is definitely the oil that is leaking as my oil is usually low."

**first time i did my vcg it leaked on other side down towards SAP and washer fluid, i torqued it down too much, u might wanna check your torques on the bolts, like 8lbs or thereabouts.
