I know that even on a person, the left side is not exactly like the right. It is not a mirror image. Also, eyes can be rotated. But as a taxidermist, I feel like if you can't get things symetrical, you ain't much of a taxidermist. Anybody can set 1 eye. But can you do two and get them right? Ever heard that?? I'm talking to myself. I've had alot of problems over the years. Some just slap them in, because the suppliers want us to believe the presculpted forms are perfect. They can't even agree on the angle. 45 degrees, 47, 43, which is it? Who cares? just make them look right. And the downward cant. I've watched 100 videos and seminars, I've never seen anbody explain how they come up with this downward cant. Do they just guess? Set the 45 degrees and then just angle them down alittle? How many instraments do you guys use? Calipers, straightedge, level? Anybody use the clear acetate with the markings like they sell for bobcats and such? Do they make those for deer? I know if you get it close, when you slide the skin on you have to be carefull not to mess up your clay. I've had trouble while drying things move also. I've had so much trouble over the years, I'm wondering if I need to have my eyes checked. Also, I know I need more light in my shop, I'm working on that. So, can eyesite affect the way you see things when looking at the small details? I know it sounds like a stupid question. For example...I started using a mirror to check things. A deer hanging on the wall, almost dry. I've been working on it fine tunning it. I notice one eye is a tiny bit more open than the other. The left eye is wider. Now I can close one eye or open the other one. Both would be anatomicaly ok. One gives it a more relaxed look. The other gives it a more alert look. I look at it in a mirror and I know it is a reverse immage but now the deer's right eye looks wider. I'm thinking, "boy I really suck at deer mounting." Bout ready to throw in the towell. I think I need my eyes checked. But I try hard. I think about what Sally said one time. "I don't like nothing I do, never satisfied with my work." I've had lots of trainning, I guess I just suck at taxidermy. Symetry kicks my but.
