I actually took a photo of my grandfather next to one of the vertebrae, and it was as tall as he was.

BTW My grandfather is Argentinian.

The latest GDI had it at basically the same size as the GSP-referred Mamenchisaurus sinocanadorum specimen from Tokyo. I don't know if I'm fully agreed with this reconstruction though, didn't have the chance to attempt a cross-scaling of it myself.

Thank you!

It didn't shrink that much really, it's still probably the largest sauropod aside from maybe Barosaurus.

Het is best wel mind blowing hoe groot dit ding is als je eraan denkt dat de hoofden van die beesten proportioneel zeer klein zijn, maar in het echt nog steeds bijna zo groot zijn als een volwassen man...

Ziet er echt goed uit! Van plan om er nog meer te maken?

Bedankt! Ik zat er aan een te denken maar die laat ik voor nu achter me, ik wil even wat andere dingen tekenen dan wervels :P

De ogen zijn groter dan een mensenhoofd.

You could probably call that a malawisaurus skeletal diagram, there's more of it there ;)

It's not very reliable for a Malawisaurus skeletal, it doesnt include all of the material from Malawisaurus but does include all of the material from Argentinosaurus, and its far too big for a Malawisaurus.

I must say that it is a great work, I have seen that there are almost no representations of argentinosaurus in this way, they are usually represented in this form img00.deviantart.net/8ca2/i/20…

Thanks! It's not a bad skeletal, Argentinosaurus is very fragmentary and titanosaur phylogeny is quite the mess. The only complaint I really have with it is that the pose looks rather uncomfortable and overly straight.
