My friend has requested a day of the dead octopus (your probably over my octopus by now) but at the moment I am struggling with face.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated Smiley

I am currently inactive, due to being hit by a car. I will be back on once I am healed

I know this is an old thread, but I figured I"d reply...
I'm not sure what part you want help on. All I can guess is that when I look at the eyes, and pretend the face is like a face of a clock.... the left eye is at 9:00 and the right eye is at 2:00 instead of 3:00. It looks cute to me, because it's kind of wonky and I like it, but I"m sure it's making it hard to continue your design. Sugar skull faces are usually somewhat symmetrical, what you do to one side is mirrored on the other. Having that eye slightly off is probably frustrating you because you can't fit the designs in the same negative space. (Negative space meaning the empty space between the shapes).
I would either move the eye down, or just go with it and make it more of a whimsical design.
