    Eyes are not matching, I struggle with that still myself, but the mount looks like you have done this before.

    Bobcat looks oriental.. Check some reference.. and regardless how the form was made, that back leg needs fixed.. i

    The first bucks right eye looks like it has more clay than the left side. and the top eyelid is down lower...

    Keep up the good work :)

    One thing I do that helps is take a picture of the deer on day two or three and check the eyes and ear positions. You can usually pick it out better that way. The eyes are definitely different. Pick one and make the other look like it. Use a reference and you can sculpt each eye the same more accurately. On the bobcat the leg is definitely funky. The eyes do need adjusting also. The top lids need pulled down a bit, but you need to get a close up and compare each eye to the picture and then adjust each hair pattern/stripe on the bobcat's head. When I was at Rick Carter's I got the bobcat to where I usually stop for the day and thought I was done. Then he pulls out all these really close up pictures and we spend another 2 hours micro adjusting. We took before and after pictures and what a difference. When you use reference, don't just do an overall comparison, go detail by detail with close-ups.
     
  18. The best critique you can get is from yourself. Get a reference picture of a live deer in the same position as yours (there are thousands) and compare. See the differance and adjust.

    The best critique would be from a competition judge, many judges in fact, you will learn more than looking at a photo.
