Here's a photo from the back cover of the Jan.- Feb., 2019 issue of Sports Afield Magazine. It an ad for Gordy and Sons Outfitters. It's a great reference picture of a live deer showing two features that caught my attention. I'm referring to the set of the eyelid and the noticeably flat chin. The eye in particular gives a very relaxed expression, one which isn't often or rarely done in mounts done by everyone. We all seem to choose (me too) a more alert expression to the eyes. As for the flat chin, I don't recall if I ever modeled one that flat, preferring to beef it up a little to accommodate the let-out skin when that part of the cape is shaved down. I also noticed that none of the anatomical features like the facial muscles much less the veins show on a winter haired deer. Here's a death mask I made of a Texas whitetail along with a photo of what I consider a superb whitetail form by Mike Frazier, which is as good as a whitetail form gets. What's your observations as to what this expression conveys to you? I credit this use of Sports Afield content to fair use for educational purposes.
