I just picked up a couple books today that plug LightWave :)

#1
"STAR WARS - Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology".


In the back of the book it mentions that he uses LightWave for his art :)

Read about the Artist thanx to Ben Vost:

#2
Animation Art : From Pencil to Pixel, the World of Cartoon, Anime, and CGI

They talk about Jimmy Neutron and how it uses LightWave and how it was the first 3d movie created with off the shelf software. Too Cool!
