Wow - the shading is amazing. And I like tender James a lot. I think it always amazing to see some kind of process in a person, or temporarily change, that is. We know James as the cool guy, the smart ass, the sometimes-bullying-Snape guy, the one who adventurously explored the grounds of Hogwarts with his best friends and had the most fascinating and funny adventures and stories to tell. And then there is this James you are depicting here: tender, soft, loving Lily Evans, the woman of his dreams and wanting to spend the rest of their lives together. I'm fascinated by his facets - and especially the way you are able to show them. Very, very good! Keep it up!
