    looks pretty good - is this your first deer? Other than the ears,bottom lip, eyes and the rack being tipped back - it looks good! ;D

    Nice critique, Candyman...maybe you will be so kind, as to post a photo of one of your mounts showing the correct ears, bottom lip, eyes, and the correct angle of the rack...doesn't have to be your first dear...sure appreciate a sample of your expertise. I know that it will help me get lined out.

    Good looking mount. Looks good.
     
  4. BETTER THAN MINE...
    :)

    Depending on how semetric you were wanting to go....the only things that stood out to me were the Ear butt levels, which could have been altered a bit by the photo, and the two white patches of hair just below the nostril are uneven....but that's just how that deer was.....his nose pad looks straight.....

    Either way, it's a BEAUTIFUL mount....

    There's always a candy in every crowd. Does anyone read the previous posts before typing another?! Good job! Take the critiques and move on. KB is a solid taxidermist...I would take any advice he gives and use it!

    Thats weird. I have only done 3 mounts, but I've photographed them all through the mounting process and you're absolutely right. When I upload the pix and look at them....I notice flaws much faster than staring at the actual mount. I've been lucky enough to go back and fix a few of the flaws before things were too set up.

    It is amazing how much it can help with symmetry problems. They jump off the screen at you...

    Why is that?

    If you mount in a small room it's hard to step back and look at the mount. I've found that if I stand back 15 feet or so,the symmetry will be more obvious.

    If I was paying to get this mount, I would still be a very happy customer. Nice buck there also.

    I was just givin trm some crap - I have seen this mount in person and it turned out great! and the customer was very pleased. ;D Hes doing a couple mounts for me right now actually so maybe he'll put a picture of those on when finished. I was driving him crazy trying to pick out forms for my mounts. :eek:
     
  17. This has been on of the best critiques I've seen on here in a good while. Thanks for the great ref. pic and tip about taking pics of your work right after you mount it Kbauman. That's a heck of a nice mount trm.
