This flash is a sprite tribute to Randy, using graphic's from Yoshi's Island. Basically it's a visual metaphor saying that his spirit lives on, and the golden statue the yoshi's are gathered around is supposed to be baby Solem. I tried making this short, as epic and beautiful as I could. R.I.P Randy Solem ='(

Wow, that just makes this flash all the more meaningful. That was very sweet of you, guy~
You rock. If Randy knew, I know he'd appreciate it. As another of his many fans, I do too~

I was plannin' on makin' something for Randy too. Even though he and I never talked or anything... Actually, he didn't even know who I was. But he's the one who got me motivated enough to first download Flash back in the day. And I've come a long way with animation since then...

So yeah Randy, I will miss the fuck out of you.

Nice tribute man.

Thanks man. Now me and Randy didn`t know each other terribly well, I use to be a big poster on his forum back in 2005,2006 though. It was because of him I got my first daily 5th with my VGDC yoshi`s island entry and placed 3rd in his contest I believe, and now it`s because of him again I got my first daily award (again 5th) in almost 6 years... =`D

Very nicely done. A nice sprite tribute to the king of all sprite movies. Fitting music, and fairly smooth animation. Love the concept of you animating a visual metaphor.

Rest in peace, Randy Solem.

Thanks boss! The idea for this movie was born after I created the first sprite scape, and I just went with it! =D
