This short, pointless cartoon is my first flash project using characters from my "Mortasheen" world, a realm of grotesque creatures I illustrate and develop for fun. It was originally intended for various game projects, but I never learned how to make my own. You can follow a link at the end to see all of its current monsters; over 320 I've drawn in pencil over the past few years. I'm sure you have noticed by now that drawing monsters is practically all I ever do, and nearly all of my Flash work is just another vehicle for that. I've been doing it since I was a toddler. I probably come up with a dozen creatures a day, and just wish I had the energy to draw them all.

I know this is just some dumb cartoon gags and not much of a plot or ending, but I had to make SOMETHING involving these guys. I also know the tiny eyeball guy bears striking similarity to a character from Gegege no Kitarou (one of the only anime series I respect) which I suppose is about 50% homage and 50% the simple fact that there's no easier way to draw a tiny eyeball guy.

If anybody likes this, I implore you to comment on my other Flash submissions as well. A few of them went largely unnoticed compared to some of my other submissions, and that includes a few I put my greatest time and effort into.

If you DIDN'T like this...you should check out my other stuff anyway, because it varies wildly in tone, pacing and genre. It's still all just a bunch of damn monsters, but some of it is funny, some of it is creepy, some of it I kinda hate myself, and some of it I'm genuinely proud of.

Very imaginative.

It must have taken a lot of thought and creativity to come up with these strange characters, along with the morbid and twisted world that they occupy. I especially love that chainsaw duck creature.

Wow

The character designs alone in this where fantastic, but your use of sound, particularly the chainsaw used as dialogue was also incredibly clever and fresh. The pacing and everything was pretty much spot on. My only real gribe was with the main characters run cycle, it looked perhaps just a little too choppy in comparison with the rest of the animation. Overall tho top stuff, i cant wait to see some more.

Eh...

I was hoping to say something mean but I don't have anything. Its pretty, animations look good. Little more variety in sound and some BG wouldn't hurt but uh.. keep up the good work.
