Oh WOW! O_O I got Daily 2nd Place. Thank you so much, all of you! Believe me when I say this, I cherish all your feedback and it has really inspired me to get off my butt to spiffy Rain with its original ending. I'm sure you all will love it far more than this one. However, this Rain will always hold a special place in my heart just as all of you do. I feel really honored. x3

-------------------

For those of you who don't quite understand the story... here it is. ^_^

Storyline::
Cain is a young man who has fallen into the daily drudges of going back and forth to work everyday. He leads a mediocre life in a town on the surface. On a rainy day, he exits his home to travel up into the sky city of Eriin via a Gor-gata, a domesticated Gor (dragon-like creature) that was bred to morph into a train. The turbulence unconsciously causes him to look about the cabin where he finds a beautiful young lady looking at him. Being shy, he looks away, only look up to see the girl sitting down next to him. Before the Gor-gata arrives at the station, the girl motions for his hand and places multiple seeds within it. When the train stops, she smiles at him and leaves to exit the train. Cain looks down at his hands, confused as to why she gave him the seeds. When he looks back up to question her, all he sees is a floating orb that disappears beyond the train. Contemplating this strange occurrence, he looks down to the seeds and notices one has already sprouted within his hands.

Atmospheric

I particularly like the opening and its contemplative abstractness. Nice choice of music.

Wow.

This is very nice. The only bad thing is that your walk cycle for the one dude is very jerky and unnatural looking. The idea was great, the timing and sync were great, the story was cute, and the symbolism could be taken in lots of ways. Good job!


Clarevoyant responds:

Thanks for noticing the symbolism I stuffed in there! You'll find at least one symbolic thing in every scene.

wow

This flash made me feel sad then happy at the same time for some reason. Good work... but one thing. Turn off the loop and it'll be complete. ^_^


Clarevoyant responds:

I'll see what I can do 'bout that loop. Probably have to go scrounging around for my backup disc to find the original .fla.

Good Job

Very good artwork, but the animation was a bit choppy in some parts. Work on your walk cycles. The lighting was very well done. Keep up the good work.
