Inspired by James Milligans pic "D&D 3E Racial Height/Weight Comparison:Male" http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/art/e/d/edward2/racechartmalef1.jpg.html I decided to do the same, and seeing how many people FREAKED OUT with the depictions of nude men I am forced to quote from Mr. Milligans page since he is far more eloquent than I:

Read this before you comment!

Before anyone jumps all over me for posting a pic filled with seven nude male figures, I want to remind you that people post pics of nude females on Elfwood ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME, so step off and relax yourself. There's no 'explicit' depictions of sex, nothing that can be construed as porn, and no erect penises in this pic, so I don't want to hear it. I am in no way violating Rule #9 of the ERB, which reads:

9.Blatant pornography is not tolerated on Elfwood. While the naked form is a beautiful thing, and is accepted in Elfwood, suggestive poses that blatently expose the genetalia in an explicit manner will never be accepted.

That being said I also want to state that I modified some of the average height/weights on some of the player races, specifically the Half Orc. In my campaign world I have orcs being taller and bulkier than humans. Also, I made Halflings more "hobbit"-like, keeping with the spirit of 1st and 2nd edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.

Great drawing, but I have one criticism, the elf is the wrong hight elves are taller than humans.

:-) Matt Jarrett replies: "Nope.

Note in the title of the drawing it is called "AD&D height and weight", and in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons elves are shorter than humans. These are AD&D elves, not Tolkein elves.

lol, Im 5’10 and Im a girl! xD Give these guys some height lolol

41 Matt Jarrett replies: "According to statistics, the average height for adult women is 5 feet 5 inches. You’re 5 inches above average. This drawing represent average heights and weights instead of the heroic ideal of a man who stands 6’2" tall and 225 lbs. I could have drawn that, but I wanted to have averages, not ideals. "

did we REALLY have to see who’s slong is longest!? Seeing dicks in fanart never made sense to me. Even in sex scenes, I rather no see it. Dude, seriously. Sick. At least blurr it out. Geez. Like really, who WANTS to know?!

:-) Matt Jarrett replies: "Oh JUST STFU. If all you can focus on is the genitals then it’s YOU with the issues, not me. I will not censor my artwork for simpletons like you. What a dumbass. Don’t come back to my gallery again. You’re opinions are worthless. "

Mr. Jarrett there is no average height for a woman or a man, because it differs extremely depending on part of the world one is from. I point you to wiki:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_height#Average_height- - _around_the_world
And Dinaric Alps ( where I’m from) where average guy is 6’1’’ and average woman is 5’ 7 1⁄2’’
Ofc, this is your own idea what average is, but believe me 6’2’’ is not a heroic height everywhere in this world. (its rather average 12
Still I love your representation of every race, its very educational 2

:-) Matt Jarrett replies: "And I point to you that if you take the height of EVERYONE on the planet you WILL come up with an average height. It’s simple math, but impossible to execute given the fact there are 6 Billion people on the planet (if you add up the heights of every adult on the planet, add up the number of adults on the planet, divide it by two, and viola! You’ll get an average height).

Irregardless, this is for Dungeons & Dragons. In the Players Handbook they have a drawing of all the playable races and their average heights and weights. In that book they list what the averages are. I didn’t just pull those numbers out of my butt. They say humans are on average 5’9". That’s what I drew. "

Very good work

I found your artwork to be very good. But to me it seems that your Half-Elves (male and female both) are a little large and muscular, leaning more toward human than elf in build, but definitely shorter. I have always envisioned them a bit less muscular. But regardless, you did a fine job and it definitely makes for a good comparison seeing the bodies instead of clothes.
