Shoo Fly

Share Collapse

Author Comments

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.

Enjoy!

Smooth!

Smooth animation nicely drawn very funny! Perfect!



enjoyable

I liked it, but there was mjust one little problem...It didn't really have an ending. I realize that you were really sick of drawing that whole thing frame by frame, but I wanted to see that pesky little fly get crushed.

perfect anime yes it is

that was brilliant everything an anime had to have, it had, it had colout and music and the movements matched exacly how an anime should be created and animated...i agree with the last guy i think that you did a brilliant job with this and if i was offerd a million dollars to spot a flaw...then i couldnt spot one..perfect hope to see more anime from u...WELL DONE
