Needs more time

It is very easy for below average artists to churn out works that aren't up to scratch. This is one of those below average pieces that you need to work on, in order to set yourself above other artists in that same situation.

The piece is poorly drawn, at best. The mouse gives very little control here, but as a way of offsetting this, try zooming in and taking more time on the drawing, as when you zoom back out, you will have a better looking piece of work.

I think that you've failed to grasp how little people's face size and shape changes over the years. If they put on weight, their face shape may appear more rounded, but it age will not make the shape of the face change to that, which is reminiscent of a squid. I can understand the idea of a little receding hair line and facial hair, but perhaps you need to start with a baby, in order to get this working nicer - baby, child, adolescent, young adult, middle age, old age.

I can't over-emphasise how much you need to take your time with the drawing of this and if you can, invest in a graphics tablet and practice using it.

A work of 10 minutes

This really isn't done very well. It looks like you did this in 10 minutes or less.

It looks too rough and needs more work in it. Shading in this isn't that special, and they all look pretty strange. The first one looks too much like a used, 2 coloured rubber, and I agree with FlashtooREV, when saying that the last one looks like a squid. He doesn't have any wrinkles either. The face shapes all look quite strange. You should've taken a shape which looks like a head, and used that shape for the drawings, as Fro said.

Still, it is quite a good idea, which I haven't seen yet in the Art Portal. A good start, but too rough and needs work.

I know I figured out that you must be an alt account a long time ago, but god more and more that I see your stuff and your posts it makes me think of it even more. O.o

It's a good idea for a drawing, but not done very well at all. First off the white background could probably stay as it is, but it might be nice to have something more detailed in the background. Let's say the white background works good though and we'll move on to some other things.

Drawings weren't done very well. I can tell that they are getting older as they go, but they just aren't drawn well. Perhaps you could have used a base picture for the head, something that's shaped like an actual human head, and then went off from there. It's a start, I don't think it would really make it much better, but it couldn't hurt.

Good idea - if done right.

Score: 2 / 10
Summary: Good idea - if doone right.
Review: This looks really half-assed.

I suggest you take more time on your drawing. This needs a lot more attention to detail. It simply looks too rushed, even though there is shading added.

Smoother strokes, better filling coolors, shading might be a little off, needs more detail, and it'd be cool if you could add an age under each picture, to show how old they're supposed to look!

I'll have to agree with Haggard on this one - it's too sketchy.
Smooth it out and improve the shading.

The last one looks more like a squid than anything else.
