Here's an alien made using CSS and HTML. This branched off Cody Pearce's Bender in CSS post. I followed his tutorial and made Bender them made a some LEGO minifig faces. I decided since it's Halloween why not make some creatures here's my first an Alien. It is a work in progress. I figured if I share it will motivate me to continue.

Green alien face. Alien has large round eyes with thin black pupils.

Here's the code for the eyes.

HTML


    <div class="eyes_pair">
            <div class="eye_socket">
               <div class="eyes">
                         <div class="catchlight">
                        <div class="pupil"></div>
                  </div>
                </div>
            <div class="eyes">
                <div class="catchlight">
                  <div class="pupil"></div>
                </div>
            </div>
            </div>              
        </div>

A slightly different version where I added a color gradient as a backrground-image to the skin. I trying to see if I can add some scales.
