Hmm. Your always-beautiful work, but for once I'm not reading the gender of one of your pictures correctly. Before I read the caption, I almost sent you a note--the same one I almost sent you when you first posted this--saying that the lips were too feminine for a man's face.
I'm still trying to figure out what _makes_ it look masculine, even now that I'm reminded it's Aredhel, but I think it's not a single feature but the interplay between the long nose, the wide jaw, and the generally rectangular shape of the face.
It's certainly not a problem with most of your female portraits (even Joan of Arc and your other Aredhel pic); just something about this particular one.
Yes, I noticed that too - it wasn't as strong in the sketch, but was accentuated by this one hard water line at her jaw and the dark, strong eyebrows. It's one of the reasons why I've put both pics in scraps. Those two were the first images after a month-long abstinence from drawing, and it shows.
