As with B5 and BSG, is there a unified scale for the Star Wars threads?

M20 is the standard I use (from the SWDA)

20 pixels per meter; then there is M40 (40pix/meter) for very small objects and M10 or M1 for very large objects.

My B5 and SW ships are all drawn to a scale of 1 pixel = 1.67 meters.

They were drawn a long time ago before I even started the website and I just scaled them based on some of the best reference pictures that I found. Also I had a much smaller screen and had to work only with MS Paint when I was doing them, which made it hard to make them any larger.

I've grown attached to SWDA's Metric scales as I've done most of my work over there, it also makes it a lot easier to change scales, you can quite easily enlarge or shrink a picture using percentage enlargements using the M scales.

Obviously it's easier to come up with the scale before starting drawing as changing after the fact is usually more trouble than it's worth, I'm sure Canis would rather gnaw his own arm off than have to rescale everything he owns lol.

his Canis part wolf or bear? Couse I could see that happening if he's part hydra, then he'd regrow two arms and work 50% faster.

Wish I could regrow limbs...

I've thought about it a few times over the past decade, then I regain my sanity after looking at how many drawings I'd have to do. And it wouldn't just be simply redrawing them. If they are larger they have to be more detailed to look right.
