    Ears, eyes and shape, nose shape and foot shape to name a few. Great job doing your first one. Use tons of reference and keep going. Don't get discouraged.

    Richbo 2nd place is the first loser!

    I think the Chinese would be more offended by the butchered spelling..........

    The eyes seem to need the work, yeah. Give the eyelids some detail definition work. The most common thing I seem to find with small mammal taxidermy is lack of care with the eyes and mouth. From what I can see your mouth looks like it's tucked well. Get proper eyes, get em angled, and give him some good eyelids =) That's just my opinion. He looks smooth and well done though. I like the feet.

    Lol i noticed that too, since the first one i wanted to know what a coona was. Seems common since these are two well spoken literate people who speak of them

    Sportsman 126 , you REALLY need to start using the spell check provided here, you might learn the english language.

    Sorry Sportsman 126 I think my dig on using spellcheck was intended for jleonard44...................as for your racoon, I love the way you posed it on the branch outside, near a building just like he would be in real life. I think he looks good other than the eye and ear thing which I think cylone addressed perfectly.
