    Neat idea. I like it. Am I missing something with the braided rope? I think it looks fine.

    Beautiful, especially the contrast of the dark brow.

    I know what you mean, but it ties into the color of the skeleton of the base so I don't think it looks too bad.

    To me, gold braided rope belongs on things like exotic drapes and captain crunch suits, not deerheads, lol. I still think this is a refreshing new presentation, and thats what Im complimenting. A really original idea done well.

    I like to use old rustic rope around some of my antler plaques, but I do a rock instead of velvet so it fits.
     
  14. Each to their own.........but in total if the rope is all that there is to complain about then ............SWEEEEEEET!!!

    Thanks for the compliments though. Means alot. There is a reason that the felt and rope was used rather than rock, decorative leather, etc (long story) the color of the rope matches perfectly to the bone (not gold :)

    Yox - to hear your compliments means alot brotha! thank you

    "hokie, amateurish, redneck and Captain crunch?" Dang Bill? Antlerman I think you've pretty much described yourself, lol.

    Congrats MD- You put together a very unique piece, that's difficult to do these days! We didn't mind the rope so much, but were concerned about it being wobbly. But it was as secure and strong as spiraling rebar could have been. Overall nice work! 8)

    Wow, great piece! I don't see what's wrong with the braided rope; the color works perfectly with the rest of the composition. Not really sure what's wrong with putting a braided rope on a deer head in general. I think it's just a matter of personal preference.
     
  20. Overall I think it is really cool and different. I of coarse, being into skulls love the vertebrae and skull. The mounted deer, the bone and everything else looks natural. The rope to me is the only thing that speaks to me that man has intervened in this very natural looking piece. Rope is out of place when you find a deer skeleton in the woods. Really a great piece I wouldn't mind owning.
