    How do I manage to draw an ellipse over my existing art work?

      Hi Friends, I just downloaded illustrator so I am still new using this program. I am trying to draw a eclipse over what is eyes, nose, and lips of an animal face and which I currently have in layer two.  Ive seen several tutorials on how to lock one layer so that when I draw over it it stays there and lets me draw over my initial drawing or picture on layer one, yet this isnt working, and when ever I insert the eclipse (which could make up for the head of the animal) it goes over my existing illustrator and animal face, and it wont let me put it over. Does anybody here know how to fix this? I would be deeply gratefull if you could let me know how to fix this!! Thank you.
