It won't grow back thicker as in... density, but the base of the follicle is thicker in diamater than the tip. When you shave it, it will be the same diamater at the top once it grows back out. If you have really coarse hair, it can be noticable. It won't grow back 'thicker' each time you shave it, just the first. (and even then, it's hardly much difference.)

even if it did grow back thicker, you just keep shaving it

glad I don't have one

I updated my thread like three times, but I don't like bumping it, so I'll just advertise it here :-\

Gil - sometimes people just arent sure what to say.  theres nothing terribly wrong with your sprites, but there isnt much thats particularly interesting about them either.  it happens..

Frida is hailed as being interesting and vaguely original, which nowadays is more important than being good.  I hate Dali, but i can understand how people might like his work, whih is more masterfuly exectued than frida, but it pales in comparisson to many of the true masters.  whos work doesn't?  there's a reason the masters are the masters and people like Dali are just famous.

van gogh has several things going for him - hes insane, and therefor interesting, self-comitted, and therefor sad and again with the interesting, his style was markedly different and remains so from what most people do, and finally, his paintins are very very pretty.  people who do pretty things do have an edge in terms of how they will be remembered popularly.

i have a unibrow.  buy yourself some tweezers; it takes no time at all and it's much closer+neater than anything else.






without my notes, marie cassat and that pelozzi woman (or whatever her name was...something italian).  It shouldnt be that hard, but it is.....

Also keep in mind that many female artist's pretended to be their husbands in order to paint and be sucessful.

A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Yeah, apparantly Adarias. Perhaps I need to make a blog, like you guys are doing with Partisan Tactics. Then again, who would read it... I miss my old forum where I had a group of people dedicated to giving opinions on my silly ideas...

My game has a similar class tree to yours btw. Still radically different, but some stuff is familiar. I'll post it when I have time...

I think you'd be surprised by how many people are interested in game dev blogs.
I read all the ones I know (very few) and ours receives much more visits than we expected, even tough my writing style is very poor.
You should give it a try, at least for a few weeks/months =)
