I meant that they use massive beach balls to hide the nudity :P I believe it was Leng who seemed fixated on the Cryoeltans being breast implants. The lovecraftian abomination I was reffering to was the big flying eel like thing. i havent read any of his books either but i know what a lovecraftian monster looks like (largely thanks to Eternal Darkness)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

i have a suggestion to help with the comparison of size to the human. I would now suggest putting the human in the center, and having the creatures flank it. it would make it easier as we get more and more creatures added.

or another way is to have lines going across that designate each foot.

Doesn't seem any different to me. Plus, people would have to even out each side, which will get problematic. At least this way, you can just keep adding to the right.

the thought was that you would be able to see the human with every creature, as you scroll, for comparison. Right now, the human falls off the side as each creature gets added.

The solution is to put smaller creatures in between the big ones, put flying ones above, and really big ones like Lovecraft (sorry, Vittanepan) above the rest, since its a sea vreature having it floating wouldnt make any difference. Now someone please draw a cryoeltan, it would fill the blank space above nicely ;). While your at it Draw an inceptus as well.

You mean put a new human by each creature? I still don't understand what your problem with it is. You see the creature, you look to the left(however far), and what-do-you-know; you make a comparison.

I do agree that there should be some size differential . . .start with the largest and go to the smallest or something to that extent.

you don't really need to move the human, it was a suggestion.

however, what i do think would be good would be to put some lines across the picture for each foot or something, i stand more behind that.

Best do it now, before more creatures are added, youll need to put the creatures back on again so the lines appear underneath.

I just had it so everyone did it over to the right so we could see it in order of who posted. BTW my human image is used on some palentology website to show the scale of dinosaurs and othe rprehisotic beasts.

Maybe put a faint dotted line coming from the top of the humans head and going across?

I'm guessing 'Lovecraft' is synonymous to 'Cool', because that wormy thing is really cool. 8) (No one uses that smiley... as much)
