Looking forward to seeing your changes (perhaps in-game)! Blond halflings are definitely okay (we can call him "Sam"
). As for my wooden shelf - I do remember that I kind of messed up its dimensions, but I was too tired to fix it after I noticed! So if you did that for me, I am happy to hear that, to be honest!
Ears - actually, ears can be quite interesting, in that their anatomy is quite complex. I have a book all about ears, with lots of ear photos
Anatomy is quite interesting, the deeper one gets into it - although it is a lot of rote memorization, too...
I think I used Paint Shop Pro a few times back in the '80s
My "hmm" was just wondering what you used - I like RotSprite best myself, followed by Scale2x (both free command-line programs) - they do a pretty good job of smooth resizing, although of course neither is perfect, either.
The dwarf king has a nifty magic sword
Probably has holy powers, and kills giants and goblins on contact!
