Yeah the eyes look better in the second, less evidence of charcoal being used like a pencil.
However, the hatching in of the shadows with is a huge waste of time. Cakemikz does it, but he's very clever about it, sharpening an edge of the charcoal so he's using the a very long edge. He's laying in value very faintly with a much wider edge, allowing him to do it very very fast.. Never use the tip of the charcoal, always the wider edges. If it's hard for you lay down the initial angles just start out by erasing into a value.
