Here's my sign. And I think it's my best one of this series so far. :D

Since a lot of you seem to question the colors I chose, I'll tell you now that I had a book of the chinese zodiac (I don't remember what the name was and I no longer have the book), and the colors used for each eye are the ones the book listed as the dominant colors for each sign. I'm sorry if anyone has a problem with it,or if you have a different source of information that lists different color(s) than the ones I chose, but the colors for my eyes are staying as is.

The depth of the eye, the coloration around it and within the iris itself is absolutely stunning. Talk about turning heads with those eyes. =^.^= Meow! By the way, I ish earth dragon. ^.^

Even if this isn't my sign, I think this might be my favourite of your Zodiac set. :) The eye makeup adds a rather dramatic effect, and the straigher angle compared to the others' make this look more sly somehow.
Although, you could probably have made the eyelashes or make up look like dragons' scales? Idk, haha.
Overall, amazing :)

Ahh yeah, dragon scales would have been an interesting idea. I'd have absolutely no idea how to do about doing that though. XD
Glad you like it though. ^^

It's stunning, I could so see that in a gallery. You could do a whole series of these. My cousin just saw it from over my shoulder haha (she's a interior decorator, she's into like Arabian art, eyes etc) she said "OMFG THAT'S MAD"
