Optics - One I've had under my wing for a while

Hey guys,
Well, its been a LONG while since ive posted a skin design in here. So, where do I start. Ive had this design for around 4 months now, probably longer. It was a closed design, but it got brought back again by carlosp, one of the few people who saw it at the start when I first designed it. So, here we go, here is Optics.

Comments and crit is welcome

You have wings?

Make it look like a working skin a bit more and I might have something to say...

yeah, ive had suggestions of similar like that come up, eg. sunny side up, but wmp is totally different to winamp, and this is a winamp community so i don't c the problem. if i get concerns from the wmp creator ill change it.

Fried egg or no, I love it! Mr Jones, you crack me up. Great graphics job though, I wanna see more.

Can I make a suggestion? Maybe you're not that far on it, but IMO some subtle shadows/insets on all the text and rep/shuff/xfade buttons would look really good. It would help give it some depth so the text isn't just floating on top.

Can't be a simple fried egg because of the breathin pipe in the upper right corner. I'd rather think it's a fried-egg-looking-like alien, his breathing bottles being hidden behind his body. On another hand, the 4 orange looking-like-buttons eyes can be seen on his face give him a pleasant smilin look. I'm waiting impatiently the definitive design.
