I know, it's a bit early. Don't kill me. Here's my pic for the Winter Holidays 2005.

If you immediately noticed Varynn's left eye and got freaked out by it, I apologize. Originally I planned to cover it with snow but later thought his left eye doesn't stick out enough to be noticed. If you want, I'll do another version with snow covering his left eye (that will be one huge snowflake though...). I will not add the iris and pupil though, since I designed him to have his eye like that.

I'm not pointing fingers, so don't think I'm talking about you. However, aren't artists and art appreciators (which would be all of you) suppose to be open-minded?
Please don't be yet another person that hints/suggest that I should make Varynn's left eye normal. You're more than welcome to tell me that it freaks you out or whatever, but please don't make yourself sound right (and me wrong) by suggesting what is considered 'normal.'
