duece, there is nothing like a hands on critique, this place is to soft, and there is to much bad advice floating around. I guess bad advice is better then no advice, but if you want the best advice, it's at the shows, nose to nose.

I respect you MrT. I realize that some advice is not worth the energy it takes to write or say.Also i could not agree with you more about hands on and nose to nose critic. You and others have me convinced to go to shows. Not to try to win just for the information that the pros have to offer. Sorry to take away from from this post and turn it into a personal talk

I am no deer expert, but it looks nice to me.  I have done a fox for the Michigan competition.  I did not post it here because I didn't  want to chicken out of entering it in the competition.    lol   Mr. T hit it right on the nail for me.

Looks pretty good and clean.  The flesh color inside the nostrils looks too hot.  Try to tone it down a little.  Let us know how you do!

Most expensive thing about quality is ignoring it.

It would score deer as a third in professional  the ears eyes and nose are over painted, there should be smoooooooth transitions and paint not look like its been painted.. the epoxy in the eyes should not be noticeable before it dries you can take a t pin and remove most of it at a 45 degree angle and this will give you a little hollow out area to put some clear gloss in, it will look like the eye is sitting in fluid like they do, instead of epoxy and please don't take this wrong I am only trying to help. you have hair on your nose pad there should not be any hair visible where you nose pad goes into the nostril, Two way to fix that problem, fit the nose pad and dish out form before mounting or after you get it mounted and you see that the nose on the manikin was bigger than the nose pad you can cheat and shave the hair off with a razor and texture and paint and no one will ever know, get rid of the over spray on the eye lashes and put some epoxy sculp in the tear duct and make a nice smooth flowing transition with a little pink in the bottom of them,  Hope this will help. you got the hard part whipped you have a nice shape to your ears. I lost 3 points in our illinois show just on ears and ended up scoring an 89 but Illinois is known for one of the hardest states to pull an blue in professional; Good luck

I have no secrets before after or during a show I did not get where im at by myself. It is one thing to hear how to do something but you still have to be able to produce it, that is where being a artist comes in. sharing trade secrets  is what makes this site so great.

A first timer going to a comp could post a picture before just before the show as in this case, get a critique here,  and end up not taking it because someone here shot it down. I say let a judge give him or her the critique at the show when they post a week before their comp.

Heavybarrel270 for you 15th mount ...YOU GOT IT GOING ON BROTHER  :o !
Keep at it and make sure you run game head judge down and go over critique with you. Don't be afraid to ask questions. They will only help you get better my friend.


WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK!!

Overall the mount looks good,  however, it looks overpainted (Too Dark) try making the coloration more subtle and soft.  Good Luck at the competition.
