He's freakin' terrified. My suggestion- paint around the eyes with your flesh color, to make them ovals instead of circles. That will fix the issue completely.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
Hi, this is not meant as a slight. I chuckled when I saw him, I was immediately reminded of robot chicken on Cartoon network(they do similar eyes when someone is supprised, kicked in the junk, etc)
Now for the constructive part. you can always go back and "fix" your mistake by taking a fine detail brush and outlining the area where the eyes are supposed to stop. IE: re-define where the eyes are supposed to be. That should start you back on the right track.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Heres one way of fixing it, my trademark way of painting eyes. First paint over it in the flesh color. Then using a very pointy tooth pick make two small cirlces for the eyes, Make them small!!, but large enough where you could put another dot of paint on them. Then take a blue, green or brown for the eye color and very lighty dot the middle of the white. This should be small enough to make them look realistic. **Very important to make the colored dots pointed in the same direction or your model becomes cross eyes, not cool**
And if that doesnt work for you, try painting over the eyes with skin, then dropping darker washes to bring out the eye detail and leave it at that. From a distance it looks really good.
That made me LOL...he looks like his junk is being kicked off by a bloodthirster... anyway, its an easy fix. Take your flesh color ad trac the top rim of his eyes and the bottom, your looking for a shape thats kinda like a very thin oval. Miniature eyes should be very thing vertically and very wide horizontally.
