    for a moment i thought those were bricks XD

    the iris needs blurring, so it doesnt look so... idk it kinda looks like a contact haha. you have a random glare in the middle of that black hole, i would either erase that or make the face more opaque.

    Ok so here I added a Selective blur and very slight Gaussian blur to the iris, removed the glare and did some other minor, probably not noticable improvements...

    much better, BUT i think it is not a good idea to have the text repeat itself. also i think you should use a different font. AND i think there should be a shadow on the (girls'?) face where the stuff from the right side is, like a drop shadow.

    I would blur the edges of the "dark" into the face, instead of the outline. :D

    i dont like that. looks too realistic. How about adding a layer mask to the dark, and make it fade into the face (black-transparent gradient, left to right.)

    without the outline it just looks like a shadow on his face.
    What happened to the wording on his face? I liked that part, but think it should cover that entire side - does that make sense?

    Love the green eye!!

    I like the way you did the outline alot more than on my original one, but i think the purple is too saturated and I don' t like the stuff around the eye though. Any chance you could upload the XCF of yours?
