Cyber Eyes II by DouglasN Cyber Eyes II by DouglasN
Eyes are a point of fascination to me. I'm a huge fan of Shadowrun (the pen & paper role playing game). In this game, you can enhance your eyes, or even replace them completely with artificial, digital eyes. These can magnify, record, see infrared... they're awesome.

I think to manipulate the mirror of the soul in such a profound way is part perversion and part transcendence. If we are not completely human anymore, have we not remade ourselves in our own image?

This one, I like. Actually, now's the time to confess that Cyber Eyes I [link] was but a test drive.

It's like this ... I've wandered the libraries today, one of my favourite past times, when I saw the cover of The Host. This book as a silver ring inside an eye for a cover. The sunlight was reflecting off of it and I was intrigued and immediately thought cyber eyes. I wanted to duplicate the effect, and this is it.

I've used GIMP with its basic plugins and InkScape for this.

Yeah, I was going to say it reminded me of The Host front cover. But instead of remaking ourselves it's about aliens - or 'souls' - invading Earth and taking over. It's a good book :D

a very profound proposition.

but i think non-sentient beings are incapable of reproducing the human eyes, on how our eyes expresses emotions.

this was the problem of CG artists that create hyper realistic films (like niel gaimans beowulf). the movements are right but they cant seem to make the eyes look convincingly real.
