Sheldon: Quiet Sunset Thoughts by GenreChowderStudios Sheldon: Quiet Sunset Thoughts by GenreChowderStudios
With this pic, I firmly make my debut as a strong advocate for mental illness awareness and research. All of them in general, but especially schizophrenia. Why does this matter in relation to the picture, you ask? Sheldon, the guy shown, has undifferentiated schizophrenia. In fact, I'll give you a summary of what I know about schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is a serious psychosis (a mental illness that affects one's perception of reality). The symptoms include hallucinations, delusions, various thought disorders, and cognitive and emotional impairments. Even with all these things, the hallucination of hearing voices is the hallmark. There are several categories.

One with paranoid schizophrenia may always feel persecuted and have hallucinations and delusions that support the paranoia.

In disorganized schizophrenia, or hebephrenia, grossly (very) disorganized behavior is present. The patient may not communicate clear thoughts, may act immaturely, and/or have hallucinations and/or delusions that seem bizarre.

There's simple schizophrenia, but I don't know much about this one, so I won't describe lest I mess up.

In catatonic schizophrenia, the symptoms include wild yet meaningless motions (flailing, I believe), pointless mimicry, and stupors as they're called, in which the patient remains motionless, either resisting repositioning or holding the reposition.

Undifferentiated schizophrenia is diagnosed when the patient presents symptoms from more than one type of this psychosis but don't fit in particular category. Like I said before, Sheldon has this one.

Residual schizophrenia is schizophrenia that fades off but leaves some symptoms behind. Like hallucinations and lack of hygiene.

And people, let's try to stop saying "crazy" people are violent. It's rude, insulting, and they aren't for the most part. Very few mentally ill persons are violent, and fewer kill. Substance abuse makes a huge difference and can boost this up to almost a third, but seriously. Most of the population with schizophrenia prefer to be left alone. And if they become violent, it's most likely going to be out of fear of prosecution, and it'll probably be within the family.

And it's not funny either. Laughing at people's problems is just messed up and wrong. If someone we cared about had schizophrenia, it wouldn't be nearly as funny. And just 'cause it ISN'T our family, therefore, NOT our problem, does that mean we should laugh 'cause it's someone else's? Think about it.

I liked your text! xD (all that I could understand about it, in fact... xDxD!) Schizophrenia is the disease that makes the person fell... well... as she has two personalities? I think so...

But it is ok, yes, this people not have to be exactly crazy or murders... most of them could be cured with some help... But not all, of course

So, the draw, the draw xD Interesting background, the grass is cool, and the sky too :D

I liked it! :D

Thank you! =D But no. Schizophrenia is not multiple personality disorder. Sheldon has one personality. Which is interesting because schizophrenia means "split mind" or something to that effect, so it's like the guy who named it was trying to mislead us or something. :ohnoes:

Actually, the person in the picture... is a dude. =D But yes, he looks like a dudette. Poor bloke. :ohnoes:

Jajajaja ok, I'm a bit confuse with your description, but yes, I think that I quite understand you jeje!
The guy is confusing us because his disease, isn't it? :D he has the disease but... in a lower level, more... or... less (I can't explain myself jajajaja!)

But... what is exactly the meaning of "dudette"? doubt? I'm intrigued :laughing:

(I hope that I could get an A in English thanks to this conversations!! ajjajaajajja!)

He's got schizophrenia pretty bad actually. Sorry if the description was confusing. =)

Oh, sorry! "Dudette" is an informal term for a girl; it's like "dude" is an informal term for a boy. =D The suffix "-ette" is often applied to words that apply to males to make it female so to speak.

take a lot more time on the line art, once you think you satisfied with it, flop it around and make sure it looks good backwards (does wonders for anatomy) and keep yout lineart cleaner

Yeah, I thought so. I've been inking for a while, but I'm still not the best. Plus, his elbow looks weird. :confused: Thanks for the criticism. I don't get it often, so it helps. :nod:
