First, check the spacing in between your eyes. If your eyes are too close, it may look disfigured. If you eyes are too far, that’ll have the same affect. Next, check how big your eyes are. You want them small enough that you could one in between the two eyes.
You can also add more detail, like highlights, reflected light, pupils, and different colors. If your character is female, try to make her eyes wider than a male’s would be.
