AH yes i can see that howver i never specified gaunted cheecks the main difference in the elves bone structure is the cut of the eyes and the noses. The first one and the last one and even second one had those. I can agree on the OP on just one thing. Currently elves in bg3 looks way too caucasian and they are not supposed to be. ((i would love to create a super lovely elven lady like in the last picture with chubby cheeks.))
The real test here, and the point I'm making, is that if you give all of those examples I linked human ears, would you even notice that they weren't supposed to be human originally? I would say besides the last one you wouldn't. If the argument is elves are not supposed to look like humans, and they have their own distinct features besides just pointy ears, then WOTC is not enforcing that.
