Oh yeah, I totally agree. This class certainly turned me into less of a skeptic about Blender, and actually wanting this to be my "go to" modeling and animation tool for the ages. Can't wait for 2.63, as I'm pretty sure it'll allow for even better detail in the long haul. Seems like there was a lot more to Blender than I first thought, and I thank Zak for pointing out the true potential of this app!
