I’ve taken the concept art of Ahsoka and scaled her to my height- so 168cm from heel to top of head- so I cropped the montral off and the heels of the boots.
And I have checked head height is accurate, height from waist to should is right..
Her “big” lightsaber hilt winds up 34cm long! And yeah in the concept you can see it goes from about hip crease to above the knee.
It just feels very weird!
I’m going to check the scale on the figure because I don’t think they follow that proportion. The figure is about 125mm from heel to crown.
Hmmm. I wonder if I should just say 30cm/12″? I know one person has gone for 12″ and it does seem to be the middle ground.
I grabbed these images as screencaps, her arm and saber are approximately on the same angle, mirrored, and then in line:
I used a line tool for the length of the light saber then copied to a new layer and altered the angle to follow the arm.
In both cases they line up.
And that is as close to 30cm on me as can be fairly judged.
To note, the saber is curved, quite definitely so, but I have printed out and used my ruler to compare length from top to bottom along the surface and at right angle to the top. It’s very similar.
So, now that I have a dimension I am happy with I can actually start work in Sketchup!
