The hair around the ear is blurry in the original, so I couldn't do much with that in a reasonable period of time.
Lemme know what you think.
EDIT: Image upload is misbehaving. Let me see what's wrong.
EDIT2: Ah, I forgot to convert to RGB from CMYK...
I'm thinking about where to bring you in, and will probably do so in a day or two, unless I get a brainstorm and do it today.
Can you give me some thoughts about your background so I know where to start?
|Background: Asdar Sagid was born the son of a minor noble in the town of Fairhaven. Father Sagid always wanted Asdar to take an active role in the town's politics, as the sort of corrupted noble he had always aspired to be, but never been quite able to become due to lack of influence. However, young Asdar was shockingly uninterested in politics and petty squabble, instead preferring to hone his mind to the task of creating things out of thin air. As a result, father and son did not get along very well. Thus, when the Kirling Brotherhood's monopoly on the town was broken and the Crooked Stile Fellowship began gaining a foothold in fairhaven, Asdar was more than happy to put his talents to use for the Fellowship, if only to spite his father, who had some business connections with the Brotherhood.|
