Thanks Jeff. Marty is the one that deserves the praise. I painted, I modeled and added edge loops for deformation's sake, but when it came to animation and pushing the team for high quality, Marty and the animators deserve all that. All the star models were also modeled by Bob Wallace. With their tricky special effect hair. I made as much of a contribution to this game as I've ever made to a game, buit it still amounts to a smidge. I'm proud for the team. They busted ass. In a non bathhouse way.

Well done, guys!

Where is Marty these days, anyway?

I only just learned myself that Marty quit Heavy Iron a while ago. He called me to chat and I asked him what he was going to do now, and he said he's going to work on his comic books! I think that's great. He's planning to be part of the TAG table. The comics field has just gained a great talent!

Awesome! That sounds totally cool!

You're welcome Ellis. Are any of the Heavy Iron guys planning on attending the Annie's??? It's sometime in February. I'm thinking about going. Maybe you can drag Marty to it. Hopefully he'll be done with his comic book by then. Mary were are you?!???
