If there was any doubt about how tiny j'rykhai are...."Long story short:
an eagle-eyed observer one more intimately familiar with the firearm in question noted that the .44 Colt Anaconda shown is far
too small in the original photomorph if the kitten is a mere 133cm tall.Mis-scaled Versions:The Fix
After researching the weapon and analyzing the original source photo, this observation proved to be all too correct. The magnum revolver in the model's grip (based upon her listed height of 172.7cm) figures to 34.3cm long unsurprisingly, exactly the listed size of a pistol of that type and model.
Perfectionist that I am, that meant re-factoring the pistol scale in the photomorph... and this resulted in a massive
increase in its relative size.* In the process, I also did some significant body fixes to bring the figure closer to correct proportions (yes, this is still an adult
of the species).
Due to the limited resolution of the original photo, it ultimately proved more effective to scale the image down to suit the gun than size the weapon up, thus the reduced image above.
The result is a bit clumsy but at least things are sized properly.
[*The scale of the correction and the error that required it results in part from a significant reduction made in the canon height of j'rykhai since the original photomorph was produced but the scale of the revolver would still have been significantly too small even in that early version.]
