Unfinished sprite for Elvish Civilian

If you'd played some amount of UMC you've probably stumbled on this guys at least once

he's in quite a lot of pretty well know campaigns (Saving Elensefar, IftU, etc.) and serves as the elvish version of the Peasant/Ruffian.
The sprite is actually from the first generation of elvish sprites way way back, and doesn't really fit with the new style, so, since unit sprites (at least pixel art ones) is something I've never drawn before I decided to try my hand on making a simple one for the civilian, more in line with the current elves. A few things I noticed already is that he might be a little too tall and I'm not really happy with some of the highlights and outlines (I know he doesn't have a shadow yet). But I wanted to know if someone would actually be interested and if I made any glaring errors.

this unit doesnt look like an civilian anymore. this looks like an trained civilian in sword combat and archery as a lv one unit. it could be very much a new lv1 advancement to the lv0 civilian
