I sure would like to hear how you feel about this beard... it may not be growing much faster than most beards but the density of hairs on your face is crazy... and this gives the perception of it coming on fast and strong.
Have you calculated how long it will take you to grow a Chris Millington beard? I have and I just don't know if you are ready to be that bearded just yet. Are you?
I hope you are not carving anything except your neckline at this point. Especially the stache needs to come on full and bulked because you have so much hair below the lip. Soon this hair will start dropping off the chin and showing a lot longer... just like Chris has.
Keep the updates coming but also give your goals and your thoughts about this beard.

That's exactly what we needed to hear... your goal is a big beard and yes, in 5-6 months, you will have a long beard. At that point and before, you will get comments that you look a lot older than you really are and this will be your biggest challenge...
having the maturity of mind that matches the age you are perceived to be with this long beard. Fortunately, you have some months to get used to this situation.
Now, you made a statement that density of your beard hair isn't very high. I think the translation of that statement is a bit off base... you have tremendous density already and this is what is giving you such a solid look after just 1 month growing. Next month, all that hair will be twice as long and it will have nowhere to go but out on the sides and down under the chin. Figure the length increases about 1/2 inch or 1.2 cm per month

I think you are referring to the 2 white hairs that look to be the same length as the hairs around it. It is quite normal for hairs of different pigments to be part of your beard. This blending of colors makes a more pleasing effect than if all the hairs had exactly the same pigment. In the case of black beards, there is usually not so much difference of pigment, but when there is, they are usually gray or white as in your case.
When viewing your beard at the distance you have in your pictures, nobody will even see these gray hairs and you should not worry about them. But for those who choose to get right up close to you, they may notice those few gray hairs.
Over the next few weeks and months, you are going to settle into your beardedness... looking more at the overall look of the beard rather than individual hairs or areas. This is because those around you will be commenting favorably on your overall fantastic look and your brain will take those compliments as affirmation that you are ready to be bearded and that any fuss about some questionable areas in your beard will leave your mind. This is called beard acceptance and when you get it, your brain is going to take your journey to the next level. Keep an eye out for it.
I shared some additional comments I have for you in a PM... see the letter icon at the top and click on the number to the right of it. I'll be awaiting your answer.
