Nice one! Proportions look great. One tip though, stop putting elephant nails on manus digits 2-5 and pes digits 4 and 5. Those fingers and toes didn't have nails. The only nails on all eusauropods were the thumb claws and the triple foot claws. This might be the biggest issue that needs fixing on all your sauropods :( also the ankles look a little too high, the back feet are not very tall in sauropods. Look at any of my sauropods, the ankle joint is pretty close to the ground and the metatarsals are not so vertical and long. That should only be true of the hand.

And yes, I know that a lot of dinosaur books put nails on all the digits. They're wrong. Most book artists are just commercial artists who have no paleo-experience and merely copy earlier inaccurate drawings.
