yea, that sounds like a good idea Kishmond, that way it would still give a sense of how big they are because if it gets really long, it can be hard to really scale it (in your head that is), so putting a dotted line at the 6 foot mark would give a reference point.

Umm, I can't edit pictures very well, could someone please edit the Wyvern, Krilikans and the Percusa in there?

Wyvern and Percusa are 7ft tall, and a Krilikan is about the size of a guinea-pig.

This is a Wyvern. http://img525.imageshack.us/full.php?image=desertwyvern1372hf.jpg

actually I think Kirillikans are more about the size of a ferret, but the size varies from caste to caste anyway (to those who haven't read that story before, the castes are sorta like ant and termite castes.)

it would be really cool to see the percusa on there :)

Hm. I personally think anything that isn't original shouldn't be included(which is why I axed the puppy).

looks cool, the numbers might be hard to read though when not zoomed in.

Couldn't you see the grenade launching stinger tail I photoshopped on it?

Ok I made the nimbers bigger and added an elephant for scale as well, as I thought it would be pertinent seeing as Will said thats about how big a creature you can make. The elephant is exactly 13 ft tall btw...  :D


heres a repost

I never saw any stinger tail...

you must have linked the wrong one Areku because I don't see an elephant in there.

I don't know whats going on, whether you are linking the wrong one or something, but thats not an updated image.

nm, I just needed to refresh the image, some wierd quirk I guess, pretty cool still

That Elephant is actually much bigger than 13 ft. You measured it from it's back foot. Its actually leaning foward some, so you would have to measure from its front extended foot to the top of his head to get a more acurate measurement(his back legs will be floating off the line, yes).

technically you're right, however I would rather not worry about that too much. Its not that important, its just there for comparison.

Yeh a weird thing with photobucket, I just uploaded it under the same name, so anyone who can't see the updated stuff just has to refresh like smjjames said
