Has anyone tried them on a southern deer? It sounds like the forms are bulky. Just want to try out different forms for my showroom to give customers different choices.

Yes Primetime, There is a noticeable "wedge" shape to the head. As big bucks mature their heads take on this appearance that Mr. Green is pursuing in his sculpture.  ::) I have one like this for myself, that I can't wait to get to, that really takes the look to extreme. Short squatty face, roman nose, huge neck!............Regards, John

No clay work between the eyes or forehead Mason. I do use a moderate amount on the lips and to sculpt the "jowls", chin?
What is everyones opinion of my "jowls" ?
I've never competed so some "constructive critism " would help...................Thanks, John

Constructive critique???  Okay, don't get mad then; LOL
I mounted yesterday on a Green form for a competeion piece and been tweeking it All day today.
It's nothing fantasy or special, just a clean attention to detail mount.
The reason I did it is because Jody gives an award for the highest scoring entry on one of his forms at the Illinois convention.
What I see on your mount is several things that a judge would make comments about;
1) it appears that your nose pad is pulled back too far causing some nostril hair alignment and positioning problems
2)Ear shape.   Don't know if you used some sort of liner or bondo, but Top of ear is distorted.
3)Ear Butts. Looks like just a bunch of clay shoved in there without much muscle definition. ( Ear Butts are a bitch)
4) Eye shape is a tiny bit off and tear duct area looks a bit weak. Place a bit of clay in front to make duct skin ROLL into duct area.
5) Paint work is a little rough. Could benefit with a little more BLENDING!
6) And for MY taste I like the bottom lip a little more tucked and not quite showing so bulgy, but thats me.
7) It appears you have some hair grooming issues. Especially where the shoulder bulge begins. Try using hair gel. Grease down for three days then come back and back brush with a rake type comb used for grooming dogs. Pat Wagner"s  technique.


Okay, Now for what I do like about it.
I like your lip line. That looks to be pretty clean.
I have no issue with your jaw line either. Totally natural
Overall appearance is Good. I think if you did take it to a competition you might score in the high 70"s
However what you would learn from a Judge's critique would be PRICELESS!!!!

You asked for it and I gave it to you as though I was looking at my OWN Mount.
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE    REFERENCE, REFERENCE, REFERENCE  CRITQUE, CRITQUE, QRITQUE
THEN PULL YOURSELF OFF THE FLOOR AND DO IT AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN!!!!!!!

I've read that the "jowls" can not be molded into forms, maybe because of an undercut ? They need to be added with clay in the mounting process. Comments please?

"jpwls"? Are you referring to the loose skin that hangs below the jawline and under the tongue?
