    What would you say about this neck?

    Hi all,

    I have attached a photo of Winston's head and neck. Critique please?

    This is what I have so far:

    -Parrot mouth
    -HUMONGOUS head!!!

    Any thing else you can see, particularly around the neck area? I can critique the head, but what do you think about the neck???

    It needs alot of muscling.
    Shoulder appears to be quite upright, which could make his neck set higher than desirable.
    It also seems pretty short

    I also see a very upright shoulder, short neck, and a parrot mouth. Without seeing the rest of the body, I can't tell if the head or neck is disproportionate, but one is.

    Can someone explain why he is parrot mouthed and not roman nosed....I think I get it, but want to be sure.

    Truthfully, you really can't judge a parrot mouth (unless it's very extreme) from a picture like this. You would have to physically look at how his teeth lined up to see if he had it or not.

    Like the others have said, we can speculate on what's wrong with his neck, but without a picture of his full body, it is impossible to tell whether it's his head or neck or both that are so out of proportion.
