Try giving the bricks more of a weathered look, to offset the relatively pristine look of the eye!

Some of them seem to have divots on  them, making them look more like pez. Great brickwork though!
Notable on the brick on the top right of the eye

Upon closer inspection, the shading on the bricks was also off, the light source for them counter to the light source on the eyeball. I fixed up the divots and tweaked those as best I was able, though they still need some texturing I think.

Thank you for the critique. Maintaining a consistsant light source has always been a weak spot for me. Tomarrow I will retexture the bricks to give them a more dry/sandy look and fix the light/shading.
