No time for backdrop photos on this one.
Great looking bear Matt. I also see a familiar looking mount in the background and a (Butch Bragg mounting stand)
As far as the rest of the work on here, it has been an impressive month, very nice.
Just mounted Wed. building his rock today...
Thanks Wayne, I love my Bragg stand.
I like the calm look on that bear
Justin, I don't normally post a critique type advice. But if you just mounted your cougar on Wednesday I would rework your ears quick! they really need to be rolled back and be pushed further into the form. I mad a mistake like this on my first leopard I mounted 18 or so years ago and it always bothered me. Luckily it was my cat and I came back years later and was actually able to cut it open and re do the ears and fix it.
I also had to fix one an employee did acouple of years ago. What I did was mad a cut on the back of the ear but and worked through that opening to dig out excessive clay and cut a deeper channel in the form to allow the ear to go down deeper.
I know this it a relatively critique free here I just thought I might be able to help you out.
Best of luck, Mike
I rolled the rear corner of the ears further back. I don't mind the critique.
Now you've got me comparing photos of my mount with the reference again. I don't see a big difference. However I was trying to achieve a gravitational affect on the skin as it may pull forward a bit given the cats extreme downward angle.... is that what you're seeing???
Justin, They look like they are rocked way to forward and it looks like there is about twice the amount of clay that there should be in the ear buts. They kind of have a moose like look to the ears and ear buts. Some one like WA or JB might be able to put it in to words better then I can. I think if you reduce the amount of clay and roll them back some it will look better.
Mike - mjvaden - asked me if I would try and explain what he is trying to help you with, and if it is all right with you, I will try and help. Let me know this is okay with you before I even start, as too many here pitch a fit whenever I try to help! I can make it private if you like, but it would benefit all if it were posted here.
