    "details that I would like to keep in a neutral way." That means you are creating something new, a new interpretation of this style, and not just trying to just digitize what is there already. That's the right way to go, in my opinion, but that means it's *your* baby. There are not any rules except the ones you make up that satisfy your aesthetic. It may be helpful to see other revivals of related styles, to see how they have solved the problems you will run up against, but your ideas are what will give it whatever value it ends up having.

    You have lost the discipline of the original, which has no overshoot and very tight fit.
    These qualities hold its irregular color in check.
    The tension between the disciplined metrics and the awkward color gives the face its nuanced personality.
    Without the accurate constraint of the metrics, the overall effect is amateurish.

    Sorry, I didn't check the PDF. I like Nick's insights.
