"The ticktock of time allows me to see
An owl turn to an echo
The butterfly to a cocoon
A swan to ugly duckling
A lake to an ocean..."

about how young turns into old.. and the old is transformed into young which carries life ahead.... and that's how the story goes :)

First, let's start out with what I like about this image. I like that it makes me think about the two-headed Roman God Janus who is always looking forward and backward. I also like that the background circle is not perfectly circular because it does look like an old hand-minted coin.

Second, things to improve on. The texture of the image is too smooth, like a pastel drawing on a chalk board. The smoothness is appropriate for the baby face, but elderly face could use a bit more roughing up. Since you use Painter I'd try using the Papers palette and punching up the grain of the paper, just to add a little grit to the image. I'd also play with the contrast/brightness settings a bit to deepen the shadows.

Overall, it's a promising piece with great potential and I'd love to see a re-vamped version.
