This is really cool. The eyes really work for creating expressions for them. And I really like the one that still has some eyes left, that seem to be burning up or something. Nice touch. Great job!

:nod: as they decreased in size and as i positioned them there was some slight distortion in some so it gives each one a more individual expression almost.
that one with the glowy part in the eyes i wanted to just add a hint of i dunno..almost like the skull was possessed or haunted or something :giggle: not to mention it gave the image more dimension and made it less flat for me
