Drawing faces?

What age should a child be able to draw a recognizable face? Basically I am asking if my son is a natural born artist, or if it is normal at his age? I'm not going to post his age yet. Look at the picture, and tell me what age you think he is. There is only two faces he did not draw, because he wanted DH and me to draw one too. the one with the big beard DH drew for him, and the one to the left I drew, the rest my son drew... so how old do you think he is based on his drawing abilities?

ETA: He is 2. Everything I found online just says that 2 year olds can scribble and say it's something like mommy or daddy or elmo or whatever. He started drawing circles and lines when he was about 17 months, and as of today has been drawing faces non-stop. So I guess he might just be average, but I still think he's gonna be a great artist like his daddy.

My youngest was probably 2 or 3 when she started drawing faces. The middle was 3 when she was drawing not only faces but clothes (she's 6 and wants to be a fashion designer LOL), and my oldest was probably 4. She was a bit.. boring. lol

did I also mention that I really need to go to bed? Sadie is the only one who responded and I need more than one person's opinion, though sadies opinion probably counts for tons more....
