    Its airbrush. We replicated the white,black,red tones and then sprayed it with the same gloss used on nostrils in the finish process and that really makes it pop! Ill get some better quality photos opun completion. These are all iphone pics

    I guess I'm a bit old fashioned, but I'm not a fan of this much "reality"...sorry. I would much rather see all the velvet stripped and the horns worked to look like they would when they are full hard horn. Just my view.

    No offense taken CC. I like differing of opinions. Im getting the hint my mindset is a bit abstract for some. I never had the chance to see him hard horned or that may have been an option. To me with the added colors it adds alot of life to the mount down the road. It will always look " fresh" in years to come.

    I guess the reason I feel this way is I am not an archer. Rifle hunting season tends to be later and the bucks are mostly hard horn. Of all the bucks I taken, only a few were still in the velvet, and most of those in the process of stripping off the velvet. Only one was still full velvet and he was a stag...no cahones. His horns were really different and I am sure he would have mostly stayed in velvet.

    If most of the bucks were still in the velvet when i hunted them, i might feel differnt.

    These were with the rx100 point and shoot. You can kind of see where I blended the rear main beam with some more blood look. In the previous pics you can compare. Click image for larger version.

    That really looks great! Does it look somewhat similar to when he hit the dirt?

    Its a bit exaggerated. Here is the opposite side not as much rubbed on this side but a good comparison. This was after a pack out. And a long drive. But no actual field photos. Click image for larger version.
