Character Design Issues

So we were sitting in crit and there was this whole debate about Duck Boy's design. Certain members of the class were opposed to the idea of duck boy having white eyes. The argument is that he looks "vacant and souless" and that it is incongruous with the ducks who merely have black dots for eyes. So I drafted out comparision of different eyes: white eyes, black eyes, and black eyes with white highlights. Personally I think he looks more souless with black pits for eyes, but I'll put it up for review here. Please, everyone cast your opinions about it.

It's not that he looks soulless, but that he's hypnotized or something. Black dot eyes have charm because they've got history, you know? I mean, even Mickey had black eyes at one point. In fact, that's my favorite era Mickey. So my vote is for black.

Well, I know the grad students voted for white eyes, but my personal choice is dark. You will really need to decide which version you like best. You're the director, after all!

I personally like the black eyes with the white highlight. Great work by the way!
