awesome stuff, i'll look into that plugin... anything that will smooth out
the work flow will be a huge win for us, i think about the hours i've spent
on art w/ little to no results and cry haha...

if it doesnt work, maybe i'll try to learn maya.

good lookin' out!

hey katie, we're wrapping up the milestone in the next couple days and are
gonna start on the next one, it has a theme/art that i think you'll really
be able to sink your teeth into...
