A good pic, except the torso is a bit too short in length (I think, however it is not known from complete remains so ya never know). The reason I have the tail articulated upwards in my drawing of Mendozasaurus is because many (if not all) titanosaurs had ball-and-socket dorsal vertebrae at the base of their tails. This would have articulated the base of the tail slightly upward. They also probably fed often in a tripodal stance, which would probably also give an upward bend to their tail base.

All in all, its overall shape is better than mine. So I don't know what your talkin' about. I think it looks fine.

Yup! Pretty much. Mine looks very...I dunno...Brontosaurian. He's not very gracile...

Yup! That's where most of their variation comes from.
