Long-Haired Cynocephalus by Onyx-Philomel Long-Haired Cynocephalus by Onyx-Philomel

I date my majestic standing from time immemorial, as I, a long-haired cynocephalus – a funerary son of Set – have remained beyond death throughout the ages – evaluating too many souls for me to describe, had I the time.

Looks great, as usual, but I gotta double down on my earlier comment, that mask hides the best part of having sharp native eyes, the inner corner that gives the eye it's eagle like shape are covered, making your eyes look droopy.

You're still the only person to think so, which is fine.
Fortunately, I feature other masks, such as my most recent, that convey my eyes fully. :horns:

No I'm not, I'm just the only one pointing it out. I can't be the only one to "think" something that is a perceptible fact.

Why are you telling me that lol? You know that I know you feature other masks. And I just favourited that newest one.

You seem oddly argumentative.

Thanks for the feedback, nonetheless.

That's on you, I'm just saying it like it is, no negativity attached, sorry if you perceived it otherwise. ;)

Second line was just questioning your superfluous comment. It could be taken as "Don't like, don't look" bullshit, but I'd prefer to not assume the worst. :)
:) Yep, cheers bud, you should question tone in the future, since it isn't easily read through text. :D

Well, your initial comment about the eyes was noted. Indicating it a second time, for another deviation, seemed unnecessary.

Anyways, I'm aware of your criticism regarding the eyes when I feature this particular mask. Reiteration can become annoying, & I don't mean to seem negative by mentioning this. Hell, I like being on friendly terms with another native on DA (there aren't many of us).

Don't worry bro, I'll buy you an anubis mask you can fit and you won't have to hear my reiterations anymore. :icontrollfaceplz:

It's all good, as I said in the last comment there was no negativity, that's why I added the smileys in the other one, since tone is so easily misread.
Bro that's racist, lol.
