White banded eyes

Hi all, I looked through the archives some and didn't find an answer. Just curious if you are using white banded ( or pre rotated)eyes. What i'm mostly interested in is if you are, how are you setting them on the straight mounts. Thanks much.

Ask yourself "What am I trying to achieve?" Youll then have your answer. Is he looking straight ahead, or to one side or the other? Then rotate the eyes accordingly. See, easy, huh? Good luck with those eyes.

nice for a change, don't you think? So let's take it a step farther. Now i'm telling myself that it's looking straight. So no white at all?


White

You will still see some white on all eyes no matter where they are looking.

Time for you to do some research.

You need some reference pictures, the amount of white varies, look at your eyes in the mirror.


Im not sure...

...what you meant by nice for a change? If the eyes are focused forward, you may only see iris, or limbus band or possibly some sclera...it depends again on the expression/pose. If its really alert and intently focused forward, you would be more apt to see "white". Not all deer show as much sclera.

meaning just a simple question that was easy to answer. Just a few simple comments and no real argueing, which is nice but alway's not so bad. I tried the mirror thing but it was hard cause my eyes are so red from lack of sleep......lol. My Rott has taught me alot. Thanks for your comments, and have a great weekend!
