hmm I can see that the dark-eye-effect was your intention, but I do miss the eye-contact here now. compo looks nice :)

Gotta love the eyelessness, it suggests that we are seeing a more profound version of YOU that does not include the moment-to-moment fluctuations of the eyes and tongue. 8

I think an added stop would have helped the picture. A little too much dead space on the right. Great pose.

Strong, highly dramatic and living up to its title. The negative space adds to the illusion! Bump.

Ah - now there's a twist - eyes are the window to the soul and you've chosen to omit yours from view.
