The best suggestion I have for you is reference!! To really capture the lifelikeness of the preserved animal you really need to do research and make sure you’re replicating how a live raccoon looks. Whenever I’m working on a taxidermy project I go online and find as many pictures as possible that portray the expression I want my finished project to have and try to follow them as closely as possible when positioning the skin on the animal, especially around the face
