I have a project as a user that I want to see done that I think should
be easy to do. I would like to be able to have the background image
made so I can put it on top of the mesh as well as the way it
currently is (under the mesh). It is just a z-stack shuffle so I bet
it would be easy and get you into the code.

If you need any help or pointers learning blender please ask me. I,
"work", here as a helper mostly for beginners learning to make art
with blender. I also have a 18 min vid that is a good intro overview
of blender but you might already be past that.
