RAIN Height Comparison by JocelynSamara RAIN Height Comparison by JocelynSamara
I mentioned height consistency in the first version of this image, and a few people have been asking, so I thought I'd come back and address it. Originally I was going to do one of the "height line up" backgrounds, but then I realized it's not actually that accurate. TT_TT

Whatever. Putting numbers above their heads was easier anyway. ;P 

Either way, these are roughly the heights I imagine when drawing. Again, there's little consistency from page to page, but I usually try to at least keep comparisons in mind. For example, "Emily is just a little shorter than Rain and Maria. Gavin is the tallest kid the group. Chanel is the shortest character in the story." Stuff like that. This way, even if I can't keep proportions straight, characters are either taller or shorter than whoever they should be. Pages would never get done if I was more strict about accuracy, so the estimation does it's job well enough even if heights may fluctuate from page to page.

Quick notes: If you look at really early supplemental material, Rudy was once listed at 5'3". He was technically drawn shorter than Rain while they were dating. But he's still young and I imagine him still growing a bit. Maybe he'll even be taller than Rain before the story ends (albeit, probably not by much at this point; he should be wrapping up growing by now, but let's call him a late bloomer). 

Also, while he's not pictured here, the tallest character is taciturn, basketball-hating background character, Brett (6'9"). He is followed by Chase (6'4"), and Jessica (6'1"). Pretty much everyone else is under six foot. I've been criticized for having "absurdly short characters" in the past, but I dunno. I honestly think nothing of it. I'm short. I come from a short family. I know a lot of short people. Maybe it's just people in my area (but where Rain lives is based on places that I've lived). 

And probably don't ask me about other kinds of measurements. For example, I can't even begin to guess with regards to weight. I've never had a good knack for that. And while I technically know the girls' cup sizes, I feel like it's not really appropriate to discuss. So yeah. XD

I really love the comic, but can’t stand the American non-system of measurement.

So, for all non-Americans:
  • Ana: 1.70 m
  • Gavin: 1.78 m
  • Rudy: 1.63 m
  • Maria: 1.63 m
  • Chanel: 1.47 m
  • Rain: 1.63 m
  • Emily: 1.60 m
  • Ky: 1.55 m
  • Drew: 1.73 m
  • Brett: 2.06 m
  • Chase: 1.93 m
  • Jessica: 1.85 m

(And i notice that Brett is 58 cm taller than Chanel, which is rather close  to “literally, about (61 cm) taller”, as Chanel noted in “Chicken”. )

When you mentioned "cup sizes," I thought you meant what they drink out of for a moment! I feel very silly now.

How old is Gavin again? I'm taller than him.
Kobayaushi Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2015
Everyone's so short xD
LadySerena Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
I'm 5ft 9in.  So that puts me between Aiken and Gavin.
LauraRola Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
So I'm about as tall as Drew.  Eh, works for me.  I didn't realize just how short Ky was, honestly.

This is pretty neato information.  And another great reason to enjoy this picture of cute people being cute. Meow :3

Same! :D
flex35 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015
Yay, I be taller than everyone pictured ^_^ (though I can only imagine what it must be like to be Chanel and have everyone being so much taller than you). Also, I kind of wonder, if Chanel might still have some growing to come (since Rudy has had some growth and Chanel being younger, hmm, who knows (well one person knows ~_^)).

Lol, with not mentioning the girls' cup size ... makes me think of anime and a girls' measurements being her best kept secret or something like that. ... I'm just going to smile and slowly walk away ^_^ .

I would think Chanel can still grow.  I graduated middle school at around 5 feet and grew to 5' 3" by the end of high school.  According to statistics I found online, that is average female height.  Now that I'm not one, I kind of want to be a bit taller for passing purposes.

that was middle school for me- combination of me being short and a large portion of my class already being near full height- or what could be considered full height for a lot of people- incidentally for no particular reason besides perhaps my studder (it was never horrible but it was always there and I still have it, it's gotten better)  I was often receiving the blunt end of jokes- not a great time for me, the problem with being short is its harder to build to confidence to snark back. I'm 5'6" now, and have learned not to give a damn about height

<--- 6'3"

Everyone here is shorter than me.

I don't like being this tall, I look goofy... :depressed:

Sorry ye feel that way? But if I may say... Tall ladies are pretty dang pretty. Elegance and power as they stride through the world, you can't help but look up at them in amazement.
JamieAgathaRose Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I sure hope I can make that happen.
Ronboy31 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015
