    Thanks for all the compliments! You are all too kind.

    Dennis is obviously a big influence for a piece like this. I love his get it done attitude toward taxidermy. Animal Artistry is another amazing group of inspiring artists. Ken Walker. Jan Van Hoesen, Jean Roll, too many to mention. Many others on this site as well.
    I started with Steve Pieters and through him was introduced to Randy Desarmeau, Bill Brandenburg. Also worked for Roland Dourlain and Kevin Eaves. Your biggest teacher will always be yourself. You simply have to have an insatiable appetite for this art to excel at it. Hell I'd love to play the guitar like Clapton but not interested enough. Invest in yourself and don't be afraid to take chances. You get out of it what you put into it.
    Thanks again EVERYONE!

    I'm getting the project photographed again on Monday by my guy. The show pics did turn out good though. They just weren't touched up at all. Just photographed and thrown on a disc. But for $20 who's complaining??? ;-) I wanted pics in case I crashed the trailer and the mounts got destroyed. Got have those pics for the portfolio!
    Nice meeting you this weekend and so many others!

    Thanks gang!

    Also, big shout out to Manny Chavez. This is my second year competing and he judged my wolf / wolverine mount last year. I saved those critique sheets he filled out. I addressed all of the issues he pointed out and what a difference! Thanks Manny!
