Ok, he's looking good, but he's also looking like a twelve year old. How do I fix this?

So, nerimon comes to life. I think the pictures don't do the drawing justice; the contrast is ridiculous. I really should take these photos during the day time, when there's light.
As you can see, a lot of progress has been made; I've been working on this for about...maybe 30 hours? I know you can't tell, but I've done his eyes...at least eight times. I'm proud that I've brought him around to looking sort of like a real person from a fucked up version of Peter Pan. I need to make his hair fluffier.
But, I need to speak about the piece, thematically. During the summer months, I don't know what comes over me, but I always want to draw celebrities. Usually, it's a singer of some sort (Stiv was one of these; I've also done Sly Stone, Jimmy Page, Grace Slick, and Sammy Yaffa). But, this time, I did an internet celebrity; someone whose work I truly admire. Right now, nerimon is in Zambia, doing work for World Vision. Way cool!

The interview process for this job has been a bit rough. My assignment is to design some sample pages of the upcoming catalog.
The big challenge here is organizing the information; there is a LOT of text. I've done catalog work before, but the most I had to type were sizes and rag numbers. As you can see, these uniforms have a lot to them and all that info must be included. It clutters the page, which is the standard 8.5 x 11. The sheer amount of text makes space very difficult to organize and navigate; it's hard to keep the eye interested.
I want to bust out a few more designs by Monday. Wish me luck?
