(EDIT: The Flash Gallery Director has kindly brought it to my attention that I've ah...broken some dA rules by using copyrighted audio. So I'm afraid I can only showcase a silent version here. But never fear! You can find the full-fledged version here ([link]) at newgrounds!)

It takes so much time to produce something so short.

Anyhow, this is a one minute animation about the interaction between a woman (whom I name Nelly) and a fly. The sequences are synchronized to "Ichijya Tetai" (One Hour Evacuation), a track from the One Piece OST (more details on bottom). I started this at the end of Summer '05, intending to finish it within 2 weeks.

It's been roughly half a year.

I haven't spent all that time working on it, of course. Most of the time it was just sitting on my harddrive, being defragmented. But I've finally gathered the courage to tackle this 60-second beast and finish the slaughter. If I had worked on this continuously, I estimate it would have taken about...3 weeks. If I were on vacation during that whole time, and had no games to play or anime to watch.

Well, enjoy! I'll submit this to Newgrounds tomorrow or something.

Shoo Fly by ~JohnSu is simply one of the most fluent and detailed FBF-animations I've ever seen here on dA. Really fantastic work! ( Suggested by simondrawsstuff and Featured by Age2003 )
