[center][color=#009E9B]Hello all, I figured this may be a good time to share some eye concepts I've been playing around with for a while, sorry if the post is too long! I originally dropped this post in [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/forums/sug/2989329/1][New Eye Types] Treefrog + Many More[/url], but I wasn't sure whether that thread was intended for more general eye concept posts or just the ones created by the original poster, so decided to move Oddity to it's own thread. Please check them out as well, their ideas are fantastic! [color=#65DBCC][b]Edit:[/b][/color] [color=#009E9B]Added a new eye type, Arachnid, which can be found further down this post.

Each color selected is thematically or aesthetically associated with original flight in question, using colors oftentimes found in festival items for said flight. As an example, the golden irises for the Wind odd eyes were inspired from the golden bells, chimes, and yellow bird feathers featured on the festival apparel and vistas.

Edit: Added a new eye type, Arachnid, which can be found further down this post.


Eye Type: Oddity

Oddity uses thematically-fitting accent colors of the elemental flights to completely change the color of the iris, allowing players who are unsatisfied with their dragon's current elemental eye tones to try something very different from the usual selection available, without actually changing the dragon's element in the process.

Each color selected is thematically or aesthetically associated with original flight in question, using colors oftentimes found in festival items for said flight.

I would LOVE this, though again, this would look pretty odd on breeds that don't have pupils (like mirrors or banescales). Then again, the way that the pupil is colored might bring justice to that still, so i'd say that this is a good idea!

I think these should be extremely rare, like a gem vial or from a boss or only during flight holidays. The reason for this is cause they are supposed to be “oddities”. Not so odd if it’s common. If it would be easy to get, then no support from me.

Oh, these are [i]cool![/i] Total support. [quote name="Empedocles" date="2021-05-04 11:11:10" ] I think these should be extremely rare, like a gem vial or from a boss or only during flight holidays.

[/quote] Seconded that they make a lot more sense as something quite rare. Maybe a Night of the Nocturne drop? There's a whole lot of [i]odd[/i] associated with that event already, and eyes that could theoretically/lorewise be used to blend in with a different flight would for sure fit the theme.

support ! the only little issue is figuring out how it can be the same effect for the breeds without pupils, as it's the whole point. but other than that, this is a great idea ! also i second the idea of this being a rare item (mp or coli)
