    Hold a large picture of a deer eye up right next to your deer eye and make adjustments. Do the same for the nose, mouth, etc. Do it again the next day, and so forth until it's dry. Also, click on pictures on here of people wanting critiques and look at their deer. Try to pick apart anything specifically that seems wrong to you and figure out how you would fix it. Then read the other critiques and see what you missed. The more you do this, the less you'll miss.

    In reference to charlieaf79 and taking "classes". I don't think doing one bird/animal constitutes a "class". I spent time with a taxidermist and did 5 whitetail shoulder mounts. Now, mind you, I took this class after about two years of self instruction (ie; DVD's and reading etc.). He did a majority of the work on the first one, but from deer #2 on, I did 99% of the work and he came back and critiqued it and I made changes. Then when it came to the finishing work the same thing applied. I learned so much from this class I would highly recommend taking a class/classes if at all possible. It's money well spent.

  3. I wanted to be a fighter pilot but washed out of the program. Taxidermy is not for everyone either.
