Since I saw the episode where Leela got two eyes, I've gotten the feeling that they didn't do it very well. She looked weird. So, I decided to make a better version of two eyed Leela that doesn't look weird, and actually, still keeps her... Leela-ness.

Revised:

What do you think?

Nice attempt...though it still seems kinda "weird" as her eyes are too big for her face.  If you wanted her to look natural with two eyes, you would have to reduce the size of them.  Think perspective with a real person.

Also, is her left eye just tacked on? If it is that's fine, but I ask because her nose appears to be below mostly just her right eye, making me think that that eye is still central on her face.

Ugly! I prefer her one-eyed. :D

I agree!  Leela is meant to be a cyclops.  She looks weird with two eyes.  Couldn't get used to it.

Well, I drew the eyes according to how eyes are usually drawn in Matt's cartoon, while also filling in the space that her old HUGE eye doesn't anymore.

I dont think Leela's eyes are necessarily too big considering that Matt Groening's characters tend to have oversized eyes, but it doesn't look like her eyes are centered on her face.  Her nose and mouth are directly under her right eye. 

I know what you mean though about it feeling like the show's animators didn't do two-eyed Leela well.  She should have had round eyes, not the ovals that they gave her.  I always asumed that was intentional so the audience would be glad to see her go back to one eye at the end of the episode.

I think I agree with most of the comments so far - nice attempt(!) but the eyes need a little work - I do think they are a tad too big, and also they look a bit unusual that the nose doesn't partially dissect them, but that would require some redefining of the nose itself. And apart from that, I hate to say it but I kinda disagree with soylentOrange, I quite liked how "two-eyed Leela" appeared on the show. That's just my opinion though.

Yea, I guess that is what is throwing me off and why I feel things are a tad "off".  This reminds me off the Single Female lawyer scene where they just drew another eye on her face (though this one definitely looks more realistic)...that "drawn" eye was off-center (obviously).  It also looks, if you really compare things, that her right eye would be bigger than her left....thought that might be due to perspective.

Hmm. Now that I look at it with that thought in mind, the eyes do kind of seem off.

That does look noticeably better :)
I'd suggest spreading the eyelashes around the edge of the eye a bit though, kinda like how they are on the Marge pic.

Usually the eye farthest from the viewer is drawn a bit smaller than the eye closer.
Sort of a forced perspective trick used in the "real" drawings. Unless, of course, it's a straight-on front view.

In the revised pic, the eyes are different sizes. Just a little bit though.

Oh, well..., I see now. You might have to try what's technically known as "farting around with it until it looks right". Suggestions would be try it with the eyes a bit smaller overall with a bit of space between them. Maybe also make the top line of her nose longer than the bottom line - that agrees with her mouth area being farther forward than her eye area. Right now it's sort of upside down.

It looks weird because the nose is much to low and it has to be "between" her eyes not under them.

But... That's her real nose. Why would I change much of anything? The only difference should be her eyes.

I think the main problem (and one of the reasons that Leela looked to weird in Cyber House Rules) is that Leela's face ordinarily has one eye so her nose isn't really in the same place as the characters who have two eyes. Her face was originally designed to have one eye so giving her two eyes is obviously not going to look very good.
