There’s nothing spookier than a pair of eyes watching every step you take so, when making my autumn inspired dim, I just had to whip up my own spooky eyes. I wasn’t expecting the sets of spooky eyes Trion created for Autumn Harvest but was pleased to discover that Spooky Eyes 04 complemented my own version.
Trion’s spooky eyes blink and can be placed anywhere, even mid air but are kinda small. My spooky eyes can be made in any size allowed by the tiles but need a way to hide the poles that make pupils. For my dimension, Series 600: Autumn, I hid the poles in the rectangular mausoleum, in other dims the eyes would work well against a wall or other flat surface.
Start making your spooky eyes with two glowing tile disks in the colour of your choice. Place a square tile, the colour of your background, at a 45 degree angle between the two glowing orbs so that it cuts into the disks.
Pupils are made using the end of a pole tile in the same colour as the background of the eyes. Position the pupils overlapping the central square for angry eyes or move the pupils to have your eyes look up, down, left or right.
Don’t want angry eyes? Instead of the central square, use two planks or squares and reduce the angle across the disks. Cut off the disks on the top and the bottom to make squinting eyes. Get really elaborate and use the points of triangles to give the eyes bushy eyebrows. Let your imagination run wild and see how spooky your eyes can be. I look forward to seeing them.
