I’m going to abstain from the vote… Purely out of some sort of respect for the actor. The face is a lock. So there’s not much point flogging a dead horse. But I will share my opinions
Old Henry looks like a badass. He’s got a much more rough and IMO suitable overall look for what I envisage the son of a blacksmith from medieval Bohemia to look like. It’s partly the overall shape and structure of the face (in terms of the square strong features) in combination with the hair and facial hair as well, which for me fit the mold. It’s a rather unassuming look though for a main character. And he definitely looks older than perhaps what was intended. Which is possibly part of the reason is wasn’t kept.
It’s important to remember that KCD has increased (and changed ) both scope and scale over the development life-cycle, and the protagonist has gone through a multitude of refinement / polishing iterations. Perhaps these in combination with other factors contributed to the change in direction for Henry’s look?
New Henry looks significantly younger in general appearance, and doesn’t really strike me as a typical medieval peasant anymore. Granted that a skilled blacksmith and his family would’ve lived rather well compared to others for the period. Regardless of that, New Henry to me has the general look and air of a young noble (or at least an aspiring noble)… perhaps that’s what they’re going for?
I think this obviously has a lot to do with the cleanliness and smoothness of the face, the haircut and style, as well as the armour and clothing that New Henry is wearing. Put him in some dirty rags and Bob’s your uncle! …seriously though, the hair needs to change. And give the kid a scar or something *I dunno
