If you will indulge me some more, I don’t mean to sound catholic about this, and tell me what I did wrong.
- I reduced a still on the left (a) to match the size of the pic on the right (b). I used a yellow line going from the navel to the dark spot above it for comparison.
- I rotated the left leg from (b) to match the angle on (a).
- I drew a red line on (a) from the navel to the blue mark and copied it on (b)
Does chicken skin contracts when its frozen ?
You can’t really depend on measurements of marks on the skin. Whether or not the marks are present, sure, but not the precise spacing of the marks. Skin is just too plastic and variable. Very minor changes in the positioning of a limb, or humidity, or excessive stretching, or all sorts of other things can distort the skin all over the place. Try measuring the distances and relative positions of small marks on your face when you smile, then when you frown. You’re going to get different measurements. That doesn’t mean that you had your face taken off and replaced when you weren’t watching (hopefully).
What you need to look at instead is the underlying support structure. Bones, cartilage, wires, whatever. Those tend to be a lot more resistant to casual variation.
