Twenty vs. Four Fives – A Question of Scale

Recently the question was posed on the Mythic Scribes forum whether a twenty-foot-tall giant could pick up a dark-elf who stood just over five feet tall. There were many guesses to the positive, but I’m saying to myself, I have to set up a scene in DAZ that helps answer this question. The image below is the result. I used the DAZ Ogre as the giant, and scaled him up to twenty feet tall. I then created an elvish character that stood just over five feet tall, created three duplicates of him, stacked them one above the other, and rendered.

I think it safe to say that the twenty-foot-tall giant can pick up the five-foot-tall dark-elf. Could almost swallow him whole, too, if he wanted.

Any thoughts?
