spinal cord study

I'm trying to learn anatomy (for the MCATs) and improve my drawing skills simultaneously. This is my first attempt at drawing the human spinal cord in full detail; reference courtesy of Gray's Anatomy. I added a background to make it more interesting.

Notable CS2 strategies:

1. Used color selection tool to remove all white (make sure you slide the "fuzziness" level down).
2. Accentuated the parchment effect by using the stroke tool with low opacity on the main layer.

EDIT: Darkened the stroke.

Thanks much! Took me quite a while, because each vertebra really has its own curves. Glad the background helps.
