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.

freaky..

I like your style! You actually planned your Flash before making it. Some of these kids could learn from that. Beautiful visuals and creative monsters!

Awesome.

I'm really glad to see such great work coming from someone whose not very well known here on Newgrounds. This is really great shit man. Very original characters, and extremely well animated. The whole grotesque feel set this real nice mood to watch that. I really could appreciate some of the black comedy (at least I thought it was funny) that you snuck in there. The sound effects were used well, overall this was just an amazing flash. Please continue Mortasheen, it's a very rich world, and you should expand with a story and plot and add some background to the characters. I don't know if you should make it something big, but look at the little buzzers for example. Great job overall, please keep up the great work. PM me if you have any questions are need help. I'm always looking to do work.

Thanks! I always appreciate detailed comments. I definitely want to do more than just this one short, though I'm not sure what direction I'd be going. I originally planned something with dialog and some human characters, but who knows.
