Very John Frieda Beach Waves Spray!

Ray: Wanted to take a min to see if I could rework Sable’s hair a bit and feel out something else for her. I reworked the messy bun to be less Chippette-ish because I do still like the idea, but I tried out some other more modern styles to see if I can get closer to your vision.

Tried to convey her undyed roots without confusing the volume, let me know if you want a version without the roots.

This Whole Thing Got Started Because Someone Was Doing an Unsatisfactory Job

It took me most of the week, but I got loud combat AI’s to shoot guns at you and for it to hurt when they do. I’ll need to make some adjustments to their behavior trees – give them more refined decision making – and make sure that all this stuff is replicating, but the main thing is you now have things to shoot and they shoot back.

The book he’s writing is gonna be a hard sell.
