It kinda looks like a guy with a mustache and that is really hard for me to unsee now..
To me it looked one of the cantina band member  ::)

I think removing the mouth, or maybe slightly hint at it, or even just the nose, will have a cleaner result overall, especially for templates, so there's enough freedom to reshape faces if desired

Yea they're just templates. I didn't post it but the brow looks more natural with hair on.
It's really a choice of do you want the face to conform to the perspective, or look directly at the camera.
I don't know about no mouth, cause people gotta eat.
Here's what I would do, having more time.



It keeps the features, so he can smell and talk, but it's cleaner.

Why not work on some NPCs, see how these look customized?

If you study the faces, sure it's really strange without a mouth or nose.. But it leaves it up to the players imagination. 

I don't think you should go too dark on the shading on top of their heads, since the light is coming from above.

well heres 2 attempts at hair
and 1 attempt and standard issue slave rags

note that the color of the hair is applied in game, so here it has to be greyscale
if anyone wants i can run it through and show the result
