might draw the viewer's, um... vision.
Besides, something about the way I made the eyes causes me a giggle.
I hadn't planned on it, of course, and it's not exactly the same, but there's an odd similarity:

Not exactly a doppelganger, but then again if it was, I'd have to make a figure
for William Wilson, and then I'd really have too much to make before the Big Night.

Such droopy eyes, 

As if they were made of
