In-reply-to » I'm done with the "smallening" for now. Yeah, I scaled the eye down a bit and probably prefer this style of smaller, mostly black eyes too, which is why I use them in almost everything I draw.

I still think the other style might look better in some cases, like when Difro, the artist on the site I linked uses those eyes, because they always animate their art and need eyes that blink. For these animations, the bigger eyes just work better.

I also like the hint of color they have, because I always wanted to give my inigamis eyes a hint of blue, to make him a little different from other shiba colored four leged inugamies. I know - probably not necessary, as he’s already rather specific, but it’s also a bit of a reference to an old slavic/pegan god Chors, who was in some videogames depicted as having glowing blue eyes.
