A lot of times people draw elves with blonde hair or black hair, but I've always liked the idea of an elf with red hair. I'm glad because his eyes are actually smaller so he looks older without looking too old or wierd (goody). And yes, one of his eyes is waky, from a fire if you're wondering. The quote is from The Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring by Tolkien. It just seemed fitting.
