Teeth problem

Cutesy version of a smite character.
I need some help with the upper front teeth. They just seem wonky and no matter how much I try I just can't seem to get them right :/ Any suggestions?

I think part of your problem was that the perspective was off. The nose was a little too far to the left, and the lower jaw was too thick in areas (it looked like the jaw didn't bend at the hinge but further forward.) Personally, I think it looks more natural with more teeth of different sizes, esp if they have those bumps like crocodile jaws so the teeth are at different heights. I think that's cooler, but if it's a copy of an existing character that might not be possible haha. Also the lower jaw was a little long, so I corrected that.

I'm not great at anatomy, so I hope my corrections aren't too egregious. I really liked the rendering, especially around the eye. I don't play smite or ow or any of those sort of games, but i love the character designs and the fanart of them. It's all so good :,)

Thank you so much! I'll make sure to correct those things (didn't even notice the problem with the jaw, so thank you for pointing that out!) ^^

It's a cool pic and design.

Just to expand on warm-wax's post, it's a good habit to draw parallel lines through each row of teeth, through the nostrils, through the eyes, etc. and make sure they all share a vanishing point and line up nicely.
