First of all, let me compliment you on your understanding of the structure of the human face. Whether it's a female or a male (I personally think it's the former, but who can tell these days?), there are certain shapes and placements that make up the face's structure. In this, I have to say that I was very impressed with your work. Of course, there are a few minor technical errors, but nothing major that I can see. My only complaint is that it looks like the mouth was just pasted on: it doesn't seem to fit the flow of the jaw and the way the main face is turned.

In lieu of the title "Schizophrenia", I was expecting different expressions. In this, I was a little disappointed. Schizophrenia, by definition, is a collection of variations of personality. All of the faces I see are have the same expression: is this true of the mental disease you were going for?

Other than that, the elements of the piece work together quite wonderfully, but I do have one last question. What is the meaning of having a checkered pattern at the bottom of the painting? Were you aiming for something like a chessboard, or the floor of a hospital?

Allow me to correct you. Schizophrenia is a disorder characterized by cognitive and emotional dysfunctions, delusions and hallucinations, disorganized speech and behavior, and inappropriate emotions. The belief that schizophrenia is characterized by 'split personality' is a myth. Feel free to check the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental disorders (5th edition). The artist captured the hallucinations and flat affect (schizophrenics often don't show any emotion) perfectly and I will be putting this picture up for discussion in my Psycopathology class.

I love this :)

In response to a previous comment, schizophrenia is not a "a collection of variations of personality." It's a mental disorder that distorts way you view reality.
