My Eyes,  My Stars

I've always been Ikon Innova's biggest fan when it came to eyes. One blogger once told me it was like walking into a jewelry store - all the eyes look like perfect little gems. And you know? That's the a great example. I've always liked the IKON brand above other brands because of the sclera. I know that seems kind of silly, but many top eye makers in SL have an unnaturally shadowed sclera. I can not stand the overabundance of shadow because it negates what would otherwise be a brilliantly colored iris. IKON has always had a perfect balance of realistic sclera with an iris that has a slightly fantasy appeal.

Up until now, I was never fond of the mesh eye. I always thought the quality of the eye never changed from system to mesh prim. Too, I always through the eye was a wasted alpha and the mesh prim was just a useless thing to add scripts to our avatars when the goal is to lower scripts - which is important if you're a roleplayer and toting an arsenal of scripted gear. However, I'm sold on the Spectral eye not only for it's realism, but for the HUD. The HUD allows the wearer to change between brightness, iris size, sclera shading, and glow. It also allows you to pose the eyes for a quick photograph. There are other HUDs that do this, yes, but nothing beats the realism that comes with the Spectral eyes.

The Spectral eyes are currently at FaMeshed for a reasonable price of $150L. In case you're not wanting to sport the mesh prims, the eyes come with system versions. You can also grab a demo to try them out.

Please note: This photograph of my alt has been photoshopped, but nothing has been post edited with the eye. They are just that amazing and stand out all on their own.
