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.

awesome!

It seemed like you had some Hayao Miyazaki inspiration in your video, like the dragon/train is like Haku in spirited away, there is the fun and freedom of flying on (or in) a mystical creature, but you brought a much more modern approach to it,
I loved your video!
P.S. No one so far has noticed that you used elvish (from LotR) for the words on the train. :-)

That's cause it's not elvish :)

alright..

the music I thought was great; fits the title.
It's great and all...but I think there should be a pause button
and a little more work on the walking motion.
the idea is great and the way it was drawn though :)
keep it up!
