That is a witty title for a serious subject, but being the mother of black humour, I like it very much. ;) I like the way you accentuate the mood by adding red in all the grey shades. That being said, perhaps less is sufficient? I do get the feeling that it is slightly over the top.

Those are intense images and I wonder if the girl on the right has gone beyond mere mania to something more sinister? You were wise to avoid adding any color to the image of the depressed girl.

Very graphic, strong conveyance although the manic girl seems less bubbly and more like a very bad idea has struck her mind ...feels like danger has been unloosed. Nice work ibirella!

thanks for the feedback! from second-hand experience I know that mania can have a very dangerous, sinister side to it and I'm glad that shows in the painting.
