For gaming figures, the formula for the ratio is 304.8 (mm per foot) multiplied by the assumed height in feet divided by the figure scale height in mm. For example, if we have a figure we assume is 6 feet to the top of the head at 54mm we have 6x304.8=1,828.8 divided by 54=33.86, rounded to 34, the ratio is 1/34. I assume 6 feet to the top of the head for size measurement and calculated the ratio accordingly. Feel free to copy the code and customize it for your particular needs.

Featured Visualizer: Zernan Suarez
Some of us can still recognize these excellent images done in Vray SketchUp. Who could believe that most of these works were done with the old VraySU 1.05.33.Well, the man behind them is Zernan Suarez, aka "Zdesign". Zernan is one of the famous visualizer at http://www.cgpinoy.org/ using Google SketchUp and VraySU. I myself is a fan and  follower of  this man. I love the way he creates his scene with dramatic lighting. Zernan's is also a generous and regular contributor of excellent tutorials when it comes to visualization.

If you remember, this vray for sketchup rendered image is one of my entry in September 2010 Chaos Group Vray Render Contest and it's included in one of the pages of CatchUp – SketchUcation Community News – Edition 1
Thank you very much to sketchucation and the Daily Catchup
