I'm also sorry to hear about your cousin.  That's a horrible thing for her to go through.  I hope she's okay and that you get back to rights soon as well.

You haven't been annoying! Feedback is always helpful, whether it's to point out something you missed or whether it's to make you think about why/how you would do something a certain way. If I wasn't open to comments, I would have mentioned in my original post that it was a finished portrait that I didn't intend to edit any more.

I just like to think about what ppl say and decide whether I agree or not (mostly I agree in this case--except I like the ears :P) I really just haven't had time to get back to the pic lately, that's all. :)

I haven't really had time to go back to the portrait to work on some of these suggestions, but I'm digesting what you guys are saying. Regarding the shadows on his face: Also bear in mind that the 38x60 portrait is going to lose a lot of definition. If you make the shadows too dark, then the portrait you look at most of the time won't have much of a face. I try to balance the largest portrait with the smallest portrait so that it's just as identifiable at a glance (if I can swing it--it's hard at times).

I think making a mod of these portraits is a wonderful idea.  They're great!

Here's a version where his face is more triangular.  I do think it makes him look more elvish, but I think it also makes him look more childlike.  Of course, maybe that's an elvish thing in itself, right?  I think I prefer the look of his face where it's leaner because (to me) it evokes more melancholy but I could be down with this too.
