I have always loved Shel Silverstein's poems and stories, and recently I just rebought his three books of poem compilations: WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS, A LIGHT IN THE ATTIC and FALLING UP. This poem, titled Reflection, is from A LIGHT IN THE ATTIC and is one of my all time favorites of his. It's just so deep and beautiful, and I hope I did justice to Shel's wonderful words.
Thanks for all the wonderful feedback, and thanks to Ice006 he showed me that I had a 3+ MB file. So after some careful optimization, it's now down to 1.2 MB. Thanks again for all the votes!! ~Tony

liked it

it had alot of meaning..... i almost cried and nice song choice =}. little better animation would have been nice. and i like the reflection stayed there.

I liked it.

I haven't heard Shel Silverstein since my teacher read them to our class in second grade. This was a great depiction of this wonderful poem. Though I think the walking animation could be tweaked a bit (maybe a few more frames, for smoothness)
Nice job on this one.

i l0\/EI) It! ;D

it was really very good...
even little animation can have a better meaning that a long one...

again!! ,D

((( CUTE )))

That was cute, the no color was good aswell, and nice song coice, it really set the tone of the simple flash, the black and white was cool, but would have been a cool effect with some drops of color here and there, still nice flash though...



Pretty good...I don't really know what else to say. I couldn't tell if it was trying to be artsy or if it was just trying to redo a Silverstein poem.
