Great :-). Would it be possible to give them a bit darker skin? After
all, those guys are out and about most of the time.

I had been thinking about the next batch yesterday, but there are a
couple where I don't have a clear vision how they'd look like and
nothing suitable turned up on google images. Those include Albrecht,
Abbot Tham and the other Yetins.

For Endhelm's Enders, I would imagine them a bit like companions of
Robin Hood. Bandits, but more the handsome sort.

Now to those where I can say more and possibly dig out examples:

Elgar Basil: Middle aged, bald, fat guy, sitting all day in his office
eating sweets. Possibly marked by his more active days in the Society
of the Blades (scar or tattoo?). That's so him:

Reylyr: Black hair, pale skin, dark lips, black eyeliner, Lady
Frostbloom gone evil (although it might not show on the outside so
much). Perhaps a little like this:

Nebrin: His day job as dock worker probably leaves him with tanned
skin, lean, muscular. Kind of like this

Hope that's enough for a start. I'll continue searching for more
examples. If you get those done before I come up with new ones,
there's still some possible improvements to the current portraits:

Ella: change her hairstyle to what you had in the first sketch to give
her that old/young feel.
Cirades: make him somewhat older (grey/white hair and beard)
Sulin: bigger beard
