It's funny how everyone in the book takes Ciri's measurements.Bonhart also gives the same measurement when they are buying a sword from Esterhazy.
Just for reference, from Tower of the Swallow (English version, fan translation)Bonhart also gives the same measurement when they are buying a sword from Esterhazy.
The swordsmith Esterhazy looked curiously at Ciri, without getting up from behind the oak table. "For her," he guessed, as he tapped the barrel of his pen to his paper weight, which was a strange figure. "The sword that you asked for in your letter is for her. Is that correct, Bonhart? Well then, let's assess... check to see if this matches with what you wrote. Size is five foot nine inches...
... No question, a weapon for this young lady can be easily found. This weight and size of thirty inches fits a standard sword. For the light body and the little hand she needs a mini hybrid with a nine inch extended handle and ball knob.
I feel that it was a matter of framing that lended itself to her seeming so tall (mainly because they only want you getting a brief partial glimpse of her). You don't get to see her full body and it zooms in pretty quick and there is nothing in the foreground that really allows you to get a frame of reference for comparison. Best we have is the Game Informer cover where she is in the foreground, but still appears to be shorter than Geralt - for what that's worth. I'd wager that she is going to be around Triss' height.It's funny how everyone in the book takes Ciri's measurements.
I hope that isn't the first thing Geralt does when meeting her~
Her size of 5"9 (~175 cm) is rather tall though and she came across as tall in the trailer.
Coming soon: "Size matters" - a tape measure mod for TW3.Though now thanks to you I have a hilarious image of Geralt busting out a tape measure and sizing her up when they meet. No talking, just pulls it out and measures her while Ciri gives Geralt one of those 'what the hell are you doing' looks.
She can travel through the time so she can easily wearing the right clothes for the place and time she has come from. Nothng weird in that detail.I guess its hard too judge one's youthfulness just by looking at someones profile. I just see discreet scars and and a beautiful fully formed nose. My only objection concern is about the way she's dressed. She is running in some kind arctic climate and she wears nothing to cover her neck and shoulders? I don't know but I lived across enough winters that you kinda freeze atop mountains when there's snow like that. There might be some context tho.
That's little default of CPDR games: structural bone heads are the same for all women. They change little details. But it's still OK"Great" - The first sight was enough for me to say that she looks very grown up. Maybe it's just me but i think her face is resembling the face of Triss.
You don't need to have read the books to have an opinion about a character's design.Where’s the “I haven’t read the books and couldn’t care less” option?
Yeah, I understand perfectly what you mean~My only complain is her hairstyle and it's seems her clothes lack of armor, she is a witcherss! I always imagine Ciri have her hair loose like "Yennefer" or using a hair bandana caused it's match her personality and ideology for being a free woman. A little detail, she covers her scar with her hair . . .
