It looks nothing like Patrick Stewart to me, so I'd say it's fine. Patrick Stewart's head is not that wide/fat, and also I'd say the nose is different (but I would not try to make it look more like him). It actually reminds me more of an Admiral seen in TNG. I think he was on the show where the Bynars hijacked the Enterprise.

I guess the question you have to ask is if you used that character and his name was Captain Doe would it be a problem (because technically using an actor's likeness is not OK even if it's not for the character they played in the show).

I feel this is more of a situation of "recasting" one of the characters, such as has been done in the JJ Trek. It's still reminiscent of the original in certain ways, but is clearly a different person.
