    Stop mounting immediately, and take a reference study sabbatical. There is severe shrinkage eveywhere, finish work is nonexistent, and anatomical shapes are completely absent. I'm not normally this brusque, but my daddy always said "practice don't make perfect, perfect practice does."
    Putting out work in volume is only good if you strive to make big improvements each time, otherwise you are simply reinforcing bad habits. Look for the "where it all fell apart" thread. Glen has some great pics of what a properly thinned cape should look like. Once you have shrinkage issues under control, you can actually start getting your skin to stay put. Then, and only then, will you be able to make the full use of your reference material. For finishing methods, reference is again your best friend.

    Rstanton is apparently seeing something I don't. I think it looks pretty darn good, of course the picture quality is lousy, but he admitted that, which makes it even harder for me to figure out how Rstanton see's whats wrong... I agree the coon mounted like that is very clever, neat idea!

    ok, from what I can see the front of the eyes are messed up, like the eyeball is set way in the back of the socket and there is way too much skin in the front??? Also where's it's eyelids?

    Hard to tell from the photos, but clearly you are a much better taxidermist than photographer. Overall the deer looks pretty good to me, there are a few details like the ones already mentioned, but would make a customer happy in my opinion. The coon is very good and a creative mount! I'm going to have to try that myself. Keep up the good work!

  14. Kycooner is your camera set on nightframing or nightshot. If so, switch to the other setting and try a couple of shots. Frank.

    You need to use more clay above and below the glass eye to build up more bulge. The eyes look like they are about to pop out from no support.

    I like the concept of the coon mount. But take Rstantons advice, more mounts done without the basics or foundation being correct are not going to show improvement.
