01 Ideas And Planning Nº 3
The proportions of a teenager are about seven heads tall. The average height of a human fourteen year old teenage girl is five feet three inches tall. That is 63 inches. Therefore, a doll that is 1/3rd scale, based on a real girl, would be 21 inches tall.
21 inches tall is about 53.34 centimeters. I was originally trying to make about a 60 cm BJD. The second working drawing has a drawn doll that is 63 cm tall. A finished doll from that working drawing, would end up being about 57.5 cm, or 22.63 inches tall. In real life, that would be the equivalent of a fourteen year old girl that is five feet eight inches tall.
One other thing I must keep in mind is that I have already purchased 12 pairs of 16mm eyes for my BJD, as well as eye beveling tools. This is something to think about.
