The only analogy I can think of is that this is the artistic equivalent of blinking as someone takes a picture. Or maybe walking around all day with a sock stuck to the back of your sweater from the dryer and not noticing it.  This looked fine in my sketchbook, then I take a picture to upload and notice the wonky eye.  Resisting the urge to just go fix it in Photoshop right quick, as that kind of defeats the whole drawing in ink thing.
