Now your beard is showing more blended as the hair length in the upper sides covers skin better.  There is becoming less and less difference from your intense lower coverage and your upper sides.  This should continue to do the same for the next couple months... at which time you will have a very solid adult full beard.

As these changes come for you, it would be easy to let everything grow and the neckline go natural.  However, I think your decision to keep an intentional looking full beard at your age is wise.  At some point you are likely to go for a bigger and longer full beard, but this beard is adding at least 10 years to your age perception and it just looks perfect.

I do have one small suggestion... let your undercarriage show longer in the front [goatee length] than toward the neck.  You may have just a bit much length toward the neck and I can see it from the side views.

Keep it growing and showing.

You deal with this small difference by believing that improvements are coming soon and they certainly are... just look at the improvements just since prior posts... now your weak side has reached the density of your strong side at that time. You have to convince yourself that even your weaker side is quite adequate already... then you can fully accept your beardedness and start to focus on style and length that you will grow.

You have way more beard than most all 18 y/o's and it's high time that you stop this notion that the only way you can have this beard is to look like a 30 y/o.  When you can get your mind focused properly on the great beard that you already have, everything is going to be smooth sailing for you.

Also, if you think your beard must be more balanced from the front view, then it doesn't hurt to trim the longer side to make them look even.  That will expose more skin on that stronger side and then you will believe me that your beard is a keeper for sure.

Your beard looks great! Nice and even with no patchiness. All you need is a bit more time to let your beard get fuller. Cheek line and neck line are spot on.

Granted, your beard will be even better in a few years, but it is already quite acceptable and when you reach 3 months growing with this beard, you are going to look older than 22.  We already know the kind of beard you will have on this journey... full beard... the only question is the length. 

You have it carved perfectly for a Spade style and it only needs more length in the goatee to achieve that style.  The "bad news" is that with the Spade style you likely will look about 30 and you'll have to tell us if you can mentally handle that right now.

Keep this exact set of pictures coming every 2 weeks and tell us what you are thinking about when you look at this beast.

Your sides are getting darker because of longer lengths, but 5 weeks is just getting started with a full beard. Your sides will be quite solid when you reach 3 months growing. 

Your neckline is perfectly placed and I wouldn't change that... but you will have to maintain the line by carving below the line a couple times a week. The cheek line could be carved or left natural... it's not that uneven when natural.

It seems as though your beard grows very fast and the undercarriage is already starting to hang down pretty good.  I mentioned this before, that I recommend letting the goatee grow long but then tapering the undercarriage length toward the neck. This will push your beard to the front and set you up for a very good looking Spade beard.

Keep growing, updating and commenting as you see progress.
