I am updating my website., and i need some kind of icon for it.

I made some ancient eyeball thingy...it's just a sphere with a nice texture and bump that i made.

i made an animated gif of it:

Its hard to judge this without knowing the entire picture. Is this an enlarged version? To be honest I find it a bit boring. It takes a long time to load and the only thing we get to see is a rotating sphere, with an unsharp black/gray texture.

Try to increase the texture qualilty. Perhaps add some specularity and some colors (perhaps green? like a Borg-like sphere?), also a few extra small details, like plates or buttons or small lights, whatever, something to make it more interesting to look at.
But most of all, try to keep the filesize as small as possible. Visitors, especially 56k users, aren't interested in a 900k icon download. Aim for 150k max.

Anyway, just my 2 cents.
