Rage, that is so frellin, I wanna have your children!

I have a confession to make....I've never used Edit Poly before a couple days ago, I've always used Edit Mesh because that's what I learned on and, other than that little curvy button, I didn't know what the difference was between the two, and I never bothered to investigate. But man, I didn't know what I was missing! Edit Poly is just so freaking easy to use! I don't think I'll ever use Edit Mesh again. Man, I wonder what my character would look like now if I had been using Edit Poly. Just sitting here typing this, I can think of dozens of situations where the tools in Edit Poly would have made my work so much faster and more precise! da man!

By the way, to anyone reading this who is also just becoming familiar with Edit Poly: Make sure you do those steps, that Rage laid out, three times, to get all the sides of the cube. I accidentally only did it two times and my cube kept getting curved and stuff and I was all set up to go into Photoshop and put a bunch of renders together and explain the problem to Rage when I realized I didn't get all three planes done. Argh!

Thank again Rage!
If you had a neck and I had a hand, I'd squeeze your brain, which is your body, right out of the top of your head, which does not exist!
