I think I need to make the white be a cream color instead.

Also, thanks for the praise, Fris.

Is there a way this one could become even better?
I originally wanted a sepia-toned version, but my computer said “nuh”.

Yes, this is what I look like, except that I don't wear pince-nez glasses (but regular ones) and I normally don't wear a tie.

Well, I could give a go at outlining it and making it transparent? maybe some color? I've never really messed around with an actual drawing before in PS.

I've no idea what color your anything is... but feel free to give me some Hex values of what eyes/hair, etc. should be and I can adjust them. [:)]

Might I suggest dialling it back on the irises a bit so you don't look like a zombie of the Trump White House?

Heh.

I was basing it (roughly) on the drawing that was linked to above.

Well, Egerius isn't Kimba or Speed Racer (or a horrific automaton replacing Sarah Huckabee Sanders).

I've made a few changes to the eyes on my draft... which does tone down the effect, however the irises are still the same size as they were in the image I am basing the drawing off. If he decides to ask me to adjust them... well, there it is.

Oh... Yeah the eyes... I probably should give you what I based my original drawing on.
The thing is that the pupils are not contrasting enough with the iris, while the circular reflection is.
