    1st off, whose form is that? May just be the picture, but the anatomy looks terrible. As for the clay work, the first thing that jumps out at me is the back corner is lower than the front corner. when looking at your reference of live deer you will see the back corner sits higher than the front corner of the eye. It also looks to me like you are heavy on the clay on the top of the eye, and need to blend it with the form better. These are my opinions, others may differ. Here is a pic posted by Kenneth Bauman in the reference section.

    It's tough for me to do on photoshop, but this is the basic changes in shape I would make. The red dots show the shape I would try to achive, and the green shows the preorbital anatomy that I would change.

    Way to much clay for me, you end up with puffy goober eyes with that much clay. Your over doing it. Use less.
