These photos tell the story just fine... you are becoming nicely bearded with hair from ear to ear.  I suggest you bring up the neckline about a finger width... but don't clip any of that hair showing just above your shirt.  Pictures aside... how are you feeling about progress?

Thanks, Bill. Because I want to grow this naturally, do you still recommend bringing up the neckline? I feel great thanks, because I'm being pleasantly surprised every day by the increase in coverage and density, and I'm feeling a lot more confident and happy in myself! :D

Yes, I think it looks a bit messy with the neck hair showing below the crease. You are not ready for a natural beard look... keep it intentional so people know your beard is purposeful. 

I couldn't help but notice those vellus going transitional hairs on the sides that show so well in the first picture. That is a good sign that development is on the way.

I'm kind of afraid of doing that, as I may mess it up, but I'll give it ago anyway. Is it ok to use an electric shaver, or do I need to purchase a beard trimmer? Thanks for the advice, it's looking good! :D

Good start, I find the earlier I carve a neckline the more room there is to fix it if I don’t like it. Your beard is looking good and thickening very quickly

Your neckline looks nearly perfect. I'll bet it looks a lot better from the sides now.  What do you think?  Remember that your next trim will be easier.

Thanks, guys. Is there something I need to improve one? Or, is it ok? I think it looks fine, though I'm not too sure as I don't have much experience. May I ask how it will be easier? :)

I believe the point jasjes was making is that once a neckline is established, unless your neck hair miraculously grows longer than what you have now you will still be able to see the line you have to keep trimmed.

I think it's perfect. Just let it grow so it covers the patches!

But It's getting really beautiful especially the goatee and sideburns and your neck!
