Would one of the super talented plugin makers make a pass at a couple plugins of slimer from Ghostbusters? I'm sure your'e familiar with the "ugly lil spud" Green, Fat, big mouth, semitransparent. Anything you can do would be very much appreciated...Thanks. Maybe this pic will help with the desired effect...

If I had a high res photo of the cuddly lil' dude, I could give it a go. Do you have such a pic? Of course, it might not turn out very well, given that he'll be translucent in the original picture smile

Just noticed that there's an unsightly white bar at the base of 2 of the pics... ugh, it's eating away at me. I'll try to rectify that and post a new version soon. Sorry about that, TIE_ACE_JCH redface
