Idid try a solid mass of hair rather than transparent, but I think the beauty of the eye is more important than realism so I decided to have the eye show. I understand the issue with it though and I went with what I thought looked best.

Since it's a playing card type design, would you consider putting a "suit" where the ace would normally go? Not a spade or club or anything -- maybe a gear? Anyway, I'd buy it as is. Gorgeous.
If i could I would have had a Q and a cog in the opposite corners, but no text, and the cog by itself look out of place. Thanks a lot though.
I have also been thinking of making a full playing deck. I have Steampunk, zombies, WWII, vampires, icepunk (I may have made that up, not sure), etc. in mind for the suits so far... not sure what I would go with though.
Thanks everyone for keeping this in the fog so far!
