By "older" you mean that quite literally. I mean, I believe this is literally an elderly woman. It's still a nice picture. It just makes me think of some bad thoughts. I like the background. It seems to show some nice tapestry.
I guess it's further proof that it's an old woman. Her ears seem to be floating off her body. The rest of it is pretty nice. It's drawn with pretty realistic details. Well, I've never seen an old woman from that angle.
