Sounds terrific! Good luck there, then :).

His face looks good. I'm just wondering a little about the hair; him
being a monk and such. Guess I imagine his order somewhere along the
Buddhist line, at least when it comes to the look. If you're in favour
of the long, white hairs, maybe you could try to leave at least the top
of his head bald.

You got it right, I'd say. One thing you might do to make Dwarves a bit
more different from Men might be to put the head right on their chest.
When looking at Benjamins portraits of Bjarn and Erek, you'll see that
their shoulders are practically level with their mouth. They have
practically no neck, which makes them shorter and therefore much more
dwarf-like :).

Apart from the new haircut, he's looking quite like himself :).

No, not at all. He appears a bit like Alek, with the similar hat and his
face covered. But considering that rangers are considered a shady folk
by most people, the look is fitting.

I believe that Andrew will have to answer that one ;). ("Why, yes! Of

He looks like a lovable old man. Ugly as sin, though :). 
I really like the look of the older version. To me it depicts the
essence of an apothecary.

Uh, don't you think she's a bit too scary like that? I imagined her
rather like a friendly, good-natured person. Not as young like on the
bottom sketch though. If you would take the top one and change her mouth
into an actual smile it might turn out pretty good.

We can definitely use it. Here comes the first item gfx! :) So if you
come up with more such things, please send them over.

Yeah, he's great. You should try to remove his neck. I assume he'd turn
out even better.

Hope my comments where of any help then. There wasn't really much to add
anyway :). Great work.
