New Painting Comp: Advice Needed


So I'm starting this new painting in my summer class with Kortlander, and I'm starting to wonder a few things about it and could use some creative input. It's supposed to be along the lines of "which face to put on" (kinda cliche, I know, but you'll get over it). At this point, I want to hear if you see it as that or not. Also, if anyone feels like the background (which is gonna be darker) needs anything or if the composition itself needs something else for interest. Kortlander mentioned something that he saw in it, which I can't get out of my head, and wanna hear if that's the first thing you see too. Thanks!

Oh.. and I'm supposed to be starting this tomorrow in class, so any advice would be awesome sooner rather than later.

Also, here're a few sketches from in class. The one at the top was the initial sketch for the painting idea.

well to get that point across i feel that the two faces should have two very different emotions... they look the same.

This has the intangibles to be a really nice painting, I think you might want to move the head on the body over a little bit, it kinda looks funky, but either way, this one has alot of good things going for it.
