I didn't mean for this guy's eye to look so sinister. What do you guys think? And do you think something more for the background would have been better?

I really like the juxtaposition between the organic background and the very graphical pattern in the penguin. I like this one quite a bit.

I guess I'm not seeing the "sinister" eye - I really like it and was thinking that my daughter would love it in her room :)

I like this. I especially like the tribal feel to the patterns on the penguin. I don't get a sinister feeling from the eye.

This is so unusual. I love it. It's like the penguin is pensive.
