It is a troubling trend...this "ink suit actor" technique (which is cheaper and easier than creating a properly modeled and animated head/face from scratch). Why? Well, basically, it gets in the way of an accurate rendering precisely because it limits developers to a human default unless they're willing to put in the effort of adjusting the baseline for a humanoid race that isn't quite the same as bog-standard homo sapiens. I'll never buy the excuse that it's too difficult to create a good-looking mien faithful to elfkind.
