I read here about just scaling up creatures and that it wouldn't be a good idea due to the square-cube law. It would increase the weight times 4 but only the bone structure by two.
Are giants possible given that they are just scaled humans, or would they fall under their own weight?
I'm talking fantasy giants in the height of around 4 meters and 10-12 meters tall.
In difference to the similar question suggested How to make a realistic 'giant' I'm also talking about giants 4 and 10 meters compared to 2-3 meters.
Also I'm considering this quote:
Up to a certain size you can compensate for this by proportionally making the bones thicker, the muscles stronger, the legs shorter.
Whereas if you were to shorten the legs on the giant, it wouldn't be a giant any more. So back to where it is possible.
This is also to physically limit the skeptics about the Giant hoax where it was mentioned to find 6 meter (20feet) tall giants, that "mysterically vanished" giant hoax debunked
