Re: sauropod necks

I'll chime in here and say that I too believe that Photoshop is great... I 
took the Mamenchiasaurus and "fixed" it, with the end result being an angle 
terribly similar to the quarry photo. I also performed Greg's trace and cut-out 
method for CM 3018... and  I firmly planted the head in the ground. If I'm not 
mistaken, Tracy Ford ended up with the same result in an article he did in 
Prehistoric Times a while back (Sauropods, sticking their necks out: 
Times, n. 27, p. 34-36) on how to draw sauropod necks...

Of course, we are talking about a bunch of artists......

better fits by playing the shell game with the verts. A better fit and a 
smoother curve, like Greg says, can be found. 

Photoshop is great.
