Another wonderful work of art, Koko! (: And don't listen to anyone, because I think that your art is superb. Each character has its own distinct personality. This character seems very determined. Perhaps, he is on a grand quest, or trying to reach his home in Alinor. But, the fact that I can guess something like that just by looking at a character really says a lot about your talent.
Doooon't liisssteeeen to theeeem! (ಠ益ಠ)ノ The best thing about your pictures is the feeling in them, and characters can't always be savage and brutal! I can see a TON of personality just by looking at this guy's face, and that's something very special and sometimes uncommon in artwork.
And just so you know, he doesn't look insecure. He may look a little sentimental (maybe he misses home?) but there's that spark of determination in his eyes.
Oh my, he looks wonderful. Great painting and I love that he has a beard. Elder Scrolls elves do have beards, my own OC has a bear shadow somethimes (he is a dunmer) and maybe I let him grow a beard at some point... looking at this guy really helps to convince me with that.
His expression is wonderful, he looks... beaten. Worried maybe. This gives him so much character!
