I'm thinking, more like this, just as an example, not a replacement, something to work off of:

Notice, I lowered that jawline, added some subtle dark gray stubble, hair and brow more light gray (it's all about nuance, I feel), thicker brow, blue eyes (shade may be wrong), and deepened the forehead lines. I took facial portrait science at Caxap U, back in 1945 though, so, I'm perhaps, no offense, working on some more "technical" knowledge than most artists.
