To Big Eye or Not to Big Eye

I find myself in a dilemma.  For the past three years I have a major urge to develop my own illustrative big eye young women series.  It would be ultra creative, lack copyright issues and be exciting.  I have tried multiple styles of this subject matter and I inevitably chicken out.  But it nags me, as if a little big eyed girl is whispering in my ear.  But, I abort and go back to painting beautiful women with sinister secrets.  I don't know what the right answer is....  I have attached some recent paintings of the beautiful glamorous women art and some recent big eye paintings.  Thoughts and opinion
are welcome.
