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.

That was crazy, I see time didn't dull your talent

It sure has been a while, it's nice you still didn't give up flash after more than a year of downtime!

The animation in this flash was unbelievable! I loved how fast-pased, and the animation was just grade A. I guess the only thing that felt out of place was how the fly looked, but then again, that's probobly just your crazy japanese art style ;)

Your style was very cool and, well, stylish. The only thing I would've done is make a longer flash. Personlly, I don't mind shorter flashes and think they may be better at some points, but after over a year of downtime, I was expecting something more like an epic, like Final Fantasy A+ was.

The music was a great choice for this fast-paced flash. It started off slow and got faster as the action started. Great job with the music.

No violence, this is a nice short easy-going flash.

I gave a ten for interactivity because, one, it had a responsive Play Botton and, two, because I LOVED the scroll back feature where you can go back to the parts you want and scroll through each frame that you put in. Very cool when it comes to the very fast-paced scenes.

For humor, a ten, you also make funny and cute flashes, very entertaining.

Overall, an easy ten, you had amazing FbF animation, great sound, and a cool scroll back meter that is hidden so it doesn't bother you. This is definetly going on my favorites.

That was exceptional. I'm sorry to hear animating isn't too rewarding for you.
