Anyhow, Shoo Fly is a work of "Mickey Mousing" (Google the term, my friends) to the One Piece OST track "Ichijya Tetai" ("One Hour Evacuation"). It follows a woman I call Nelly as she deals with an unwelcome fly. And that's about it. There's not much of a story to summarize.

It's been nearly two years since my last submission to Newgrounds, and what do I have to show for it? One minute of animation. This is more like 3 collective weeks worth of work, so don't get overexcited. The other hundred weeks or so were spent on irrelevant Flash and slacking in general.

Shoo Fly has the most intense frame by frame animation I've ever made, and as a result, I'm very tired of drawing Nelly. Tired of drawing, period. This experience has reinforced my decision to not pursue animation as a profession (maybe character design is more to my liking...). My mouse's left-click button is now a different color from the right-click button. EDIT: I'm sorry to have confused and dismayed some of you - I'm still going to animate stuff. Just not for a living.

Anyhow, you may notice there's a newer trackbar. It's a vast improvement over the one I designed for FFA+ - heavily inspired by Media Player Classic's interface. And by "heavily inspired," I mean "completely ripped off from." The thing will tell you how many seconds have loaded, so feel free to start watching whenever. You can also step through the animation frame by frame, speed through it at any rate (even backwards), and adjust the volume. Clicking the screen or pressing spacebar will toggle play/pause. The rest should be self explanatory.




Rated 4 / 5 stars


i liked it, but it lacked some things. For instance, even though the music fitted in with the animation, i hate it. The way it ended was not so great. Comparted to the other animations, yours it ok but some others are better.

I really really liked it. The graphics and animation were some of the best on the site, and I loved how it fit with the music.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

good addicting but not worth while

when i watched it it was fun seen how a young anime girl was trying to hit a fly per a single mintue but there could have been so much to add from VO's to background and a little interactivity could have been good but not much to do here i gave it an 8 while i could given a 6 or 7 becuse i liked the art design and how the music went with the total movie in conclusion we have a good artistic work with animation and sound but could have add'n more to make it greater work but i would like to see more of you're work in the future and i would be happy to review them
