Default EJ20G burning oil in engine bay.. headgasket?

Hey everybody, as title states I'm having some problems with my EJ20G (JDM WRX)

It started burning oil in the engine bay where in the pictures the red circles are. I know its a gasket, just not sure which.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!!

It could be from the valve cover bolt gaskets. I am leaking a bit in the same area an am pretty sure that is where mine is coming from.

Thanks guys. Ive talked to some other Subie people and sounds unanimously like the valve cover gasket.
Cheers
