I'm trying to do a quick painting for the cover of my friend's son's self-published book. How old do they look? What needs to be changed? (sorry for the bad night lighting --background is white)

Thanks!!!!

They look somewhere in the high school seniors to 23-25 yr. old range to me.......good generic group painting. Without knowing particulars of the story that's being illustrated, I'd find it hard to criticize anything...

older college students, just beginning to have receding hairlines.
high school students usually (around here) have longer hair styles (like the younger Bieber)

the female seems older, or is wearing her hair like her mother. she seems more mature and sad

the boys look past their scrawny teen phase, more like 18-20 yr olds
she could be their teacher (30's)

I lowered their hairlines and made a few more changes. Could pass for 16-17?

Hi Maryinasia

I think they're spot on! Adjusting the hairlines has made the difference, particularly the fringe and head band on the girl.

Cheers
