Warrior Mini mask update

I had planned to start drawing items for the Warrior Mini first thing this morning, but I got caught up in building the "masking" part of the applet.

And I'm glad I did, because it rocks.

Here's a screen grab of a very simple masking effect. I added two lightning bolt insignias, colored the same and rotated to face each other at an angle. I masked one with the Body to get a Lightning Lad effect. I had to duplicate the Body to serve as a mask for the second lightning bolt insignia, but it came out really neat:

This feature is a little bit complicated, but I think it's going to be totally awesome. You can make all new uniform effects by, for example, choosing an insignia shape like a chevron or circle or square, and masking it with the body shape. That gives you a form-fitting uniform element like (for instance) a big half-circle colored shape on the top half of the figure.

Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have enough items, and the code in good enough shape, for you all to play with. I am very excited by the way this is turning out! This is another one of the key HM3 features that I've been sweating, and now that I know how to do it, it should be (relatively speaking) a piece of cake to implement for that version.
