Thank you. But I still think it needs some work. Maybe just a little more variation/shading on the torso and along the spine.

This!

However, personally I tend to darken the feet of my repaints to suggest they are stained by dirt, dust or mud. Other then that.... see above :)

Nice work, I like It! It's hard to get a good color scheme like this for a sauropod.

Thanks. Yes, I find that sauropods and color schemes are somehow tricky. I don't know why, exactly. It becomes too garish or overdone very fast. Maybe because big animals are always rather subdued with color (scheme). But who knows, right? Anyway, my creation is just fantasy, even though I try to be realistic.
