        • Very nice job on this one. The only thing that I can see that I would have done is add just a bit of blur along the sides of the eye (where it borders the background).

        • Beautiful girl. The iris would look better if it were more rounded & less eliptical.
        • If the iris is adjusted this will be just about perfect.
        • Honestly this one is disgusting. She is a beautiful woman and doesn't deserve to be altered and changed like this.!!!!!!!

    One eyed purple people eater.
        • would of been better to leav off the horns but still vary nice.
        • Actually it should only have one horn. "One eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater."
        • Supposed to have only one horn according to the song. Do it right the first time, then you won't have to do it again!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Red Eye

        • Well blended. Also, the baby is still very cute, even with the one eye.
        • Cute baby, but would the red eye be visible like that?

          [Edited by User on 4/7/2006 9:21:16 AM]
        • Nice!, But the iris looks like it has a bulge in it...right above his nose. It's an illusion caused by the drastic lightening of the iris just there.

  • The one Eye beauty

    The one Eye beauty
        • Whichever tool you used to cover up the eyes doesn't work very well. It removes all of the texture and detail of the skin. Try using a patch of skin from another spot or adding some noise to add texture.
        • yeh nielsdb is right but I have to say dude, it looks like a v a g i n a
        • The eye is also a bit too high up on the forehead.
        • I like the tilting of the eye, but agree with nielsdb. The eye could be sharper. And perhaps add some red hue to the skin tones.
        • If the eye was situated like it should be instead of being turned around, then this might be considered a beautiful picture.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Cyclops (from Greek "round-eyed") are Three single-eyed giants, sons of Gaia and Uranus. Soon after their birth, Cyclops were cast by their father into Tartarus. When Zeus started war with Cronus for power, he, on advice of his mother Gaia, freed cyclops from Tartarus for helping Olympian gods in war against Titans. For Zeus, cyclops created brightness, thunderbolt and lightening which Zeus tossed at Titans. After Titanomachy (battle of titans), Cyclops continued serving Zeus by forging weapons for Thunder-bearer (as Zeus was called). Cyclops were defeated by Apollo after Zeus struck his son Asclepius with a thunderbolt. Hephaestus replaced Cyclops in their smithery. In Homer's version of Odyssey, cyclops constituted entire nation. Among them, most fierce was Polyphemus, son of Poseidon. 1) Cyclops As considered by commentators of Homer, mythical single eyed giants - cannibals who populated Sicily. They did not have much intellect and if one is caught by Cyclops for eating, the victim can simply cheat him and run away. 2) According to other legends, cyclops were also blacksmiths. But they were close to gods than to people: Uranus and Gaia gave birth to three cyclops. Fearing these single-eyed deformed giants Uranus tied them and cast into Tartarus. Zeus freed cyclops to use them in war against Cronus. cyclops forged thunderbolt for Zeus. Possessing such formidable weapon gave Zeus a permanent epithet- the Thunder-bearer. Zeus armed with thunderbolts, Poseidon with trident from cyclops and Pluto with a helmet, defeated Titans and became rulers of the world. A year long debate has been raging over whether or not a one eyed and nose-less kitten actually existed or whether the creature was simply a hoax. In any event, it has been announced that the kitten is coming to a new museum of oddities in central New York. The founder of the museum, who believes in creationism, indicated that the kitten is meant to launch another debate about how science and religion can intersect. The Oregon woman who owned the kitted has sold the remains to John Adolfi after being turned down by Ripley's Believe if or Not! The owner, Traci Allen, like the religious bent John Adolfi because she did not want the kitten, named Cy, turned into a joke. Cy is short for Cyclops. She believed that John seems heartfelt and sincere. Adolfi would not reveal how much he paid for the kitten. Cy will be displayed in the Lost World Museum, which Adolfi hopes to open in Phoenix, New York, this fall. Other exhibits will include giant animals and eggs and other deformed critter remains, according to Adolfi.
