This makes me think of a renaissance man and the cross culture heritage is apparent. I think it fits the character well, though I think he looks unweathered for a man of the desert. In no way soft, just unweathered.
Yeah, I was trying to figure out how to give them a bit more weathered look to their skin, but most things I tried made them look too dirty. I probably could've given him some nicks and scrapes and whatnot.
