The process of building a character from scratch is a complex task. The dimensions, poses, outfits and heights are necessary to define your character. Character height chart templates help artists when they are animating a character. From conception to production the characters get handled by different people. Herein, to implement size control, these templates help achieve the height of the character proportionally right.

A character height chart is made up of rows and columns. These rows & columns carry markers in metric system or feet and inches, The characters can be drafted on these charts i.e. the character height chart template of choice.

Though people may not care about the height of a character but is important as it gives us a better understanding of the character. There are a lot of fandom sites that keep up with information of characters’ vital statistics. This also helps understand the dimensions & motion of a character with respect to the surrounding environment. Many artists call this corelation in terms of “sense of geography”. If you get to know about the heights of the characters you’ll never see them the same.

Here are a few examples:

1. The Character Height Chart Template in Centimetres.

You may use this chart for actual comparison or a comparison of scale. As you can see, this chart has no units in the X-Axis. It is best suited to measure & compare things where the width is immaterial. The above template is the simplest form of a character height chart template. TO compare things of larger scales, you can equate a centimeter with a meter or yards.

2. The Krita Character Height chart template.

Sometimes you need to overlay different height comparisons on the same chart. For example, you may compare the heights of human operators in one colour & the height of the machinery in another colour, but decisions may require an overlay of both charts. In such a case, a Krita character height chart template can help create an overlay & multi-coloured grids to see each comparison separately.

3. The Character Height Chart Template in Feet

DO you need a large chart for an event or a presentation? A character height chart template of centimetres may look confusing on a projector or a huge scale. Instead, you could utilise a chart template with measurements in feet. This also gives a correct sense of proportion to the viewer when they compare the chart measurements with the actual thing.

4. The Character Height Chart Template to Convert Units

These charts are often called Conversion Charts. They contain measurement comparisons on two parallel Y axes. For example, in the chart below, the left Y Axes shows the conversion of inches to feet. On the other hand, the right axis shows the conversion of feet to centimeter. This template is helpful when a diverse audience is viewing the chart i.e. the audience comes from different backgrounds of measurement practices.

5. The Character Height Chart Template for Comparing Units.

The following chart is more convenient for comparison, instead of conversions. One axis carries units in one system, while the other carries units of another system. You may have seen such charts in footwear stores where one scale measures it in centimetres & the other measures the same in inches. These charts are useful in measuring something in your system of choice. You can choose to see your foot in inches by placing your foot near the left axis or you can check the centimetre measurement by placing the foot near the right axis.

6. The Simple Character Height Chart Template.

This chart has no sub-measurements. The units are whole units & the comparisons are simple. The distance between two units is pronounced but the distinction of exact measurements is not there. This chart is not a statistical comparison but a visual aid. For example, you can express the variance of the subject matter by drawing a line chart or a bar chart on this template. It will show this to the audience but you do not have to share the exact statistical measurements with them. These types of charts are suited for disclosing partial information.

7. The Character Height Chart Template for Police Lineups

Ever wonder why law enforcement agencies click pictures of arrested people in front of charts? It serves two purposes. First, the photographed individual cannot tilt the head or angle of the face & try to dupe the photography equipment or the observer. Second, it gives authorities a sense of the scale of the appearance & facial injuries of the arrested. This scale can help ascertain the absence or occurrence of any injury on the face. In rare cases, this scale can also help in placing a mole or a facial identifier at its exact location.

8. The Character Height Chart Template for Any Unit
