I have a crop and a full frame. I actually prefer the crop for the portraiture I do. In most cases, the crop sensor actually produces a better portrait image, all things being equal.

Exactly! Who cares what you use, the end result is all that matters and these shots are definitely proof of that! Nice work!

On some of these photos, I can't tell if there's too much processing, or too little. A few of them are truly horrifying.

There's nothing wrong with shooting portraits on crop, I totally get that. The only real advantage of FF is the extra stop or so of DOF which in many situations can be quite trivial.

But there is the fact that even the 5D classic beats any Canon cropper in terms of IQ and sharpness in the RAW files.

Something people often forget is that with "affordable" (i.e. non-L) lens for the "casual" hobbyist, crop sensors are going to avoid a lot of the "edge of lens" negative effects that are more prominent in cheaper lenses. For the absolute best picture ever, there's no question a 6800$ camera with a world class photographer can out do an amateur with rebel. However, there's no reason the average hobbyist with a rebel can't take a damn nice portrait to be proud of in 2013.

There is a grain of truth here, but of course corner performance is important for portraits somewhere close to 'never'.

True. Portraits are not especially demanding and if you have a tight budget then FF cameras and such seem unwarranted.
