Looks good! If you are going to go any longer I would also bring the neck line down a little. Maybe even abandon it all together and just hit the few that fall well outside the beard lines every couple weeks to month. If it starts to get a little too bushy sides could be brought in a bit, but i don't think they need that yet. Leave all the length on the front and bottom unless you wat a shorter beard.

Cool thanks man!
 
Your natural cheek line is good. I'm glad you are not trying to make your beard outline fit some fixed geometric shape like a lot of people these days. It's better to follow the natural hairline where possible.

It looks like you have trimmed everything to the same length. IMHO, beards are more interesting with varying lengths of the whiskers. Instead of having an overall rounded beard shape, aim for more of a rectangular, sculpted look. Since your face is square shaped, you could lose a little width on the sides and it would balance out better by giving your face less width and more height.

One final comment. Your beard will look a little neater if you can taper the neckline. Instead of a blunt cutoff line, made the whiskers gradually shorter closer to the neck. You can also soften the line in front of your ears in a similar way.

Excellent beard! Do you have a length or specific look in mind you are shooting for? Your edging on the cheeks looks consistent and follows the natural shape. Well done! I agree with the above comment that your neck line could be let out a bit. One fingers width above your adam's apple might do the trick. Having a lower neck line fills in the beard under your jawline and chin. It appears you're keeping your mustache on a tight leash- trimming at the lip line and keeping it short. Consider letting the mustache run free and training it around your mouth. A full mustache and beard go together like peas and carrots. You've reached the length where a beard balm can both moisturize and train those whiskers. Congratulations on a high quality beard!
 
Thanks all! I took some of the advice , and when I got my haircut I opted for the sides to be trimmed and I think it brought it all together!

More Deep Thoughts than Jack Handy
Looks good. Is this your first attempt at a full beard? My advice...get a good beard trimmer with an adjustable clip on the end and buzz it down. Then...this may sound weird...but then let it grow back in again. Every time you do that...it'll come in better than before.
