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.

allright

you get a nine because it was something pointless that you wanted to make. if this was supposed to be serious you would get a 0(maybe1)

I don't think any Flash cartoon is that serious :p

Brilliant!

I love your previous work and I was very pleased with this one as well. Your creativity is off the charts when it comes to the look and feel of the "creatures". Also providing that eerie feeling by not giving any "human" talking is very well done. I can't wait to see what you have next.

Keep it up!

yeek!

i like the look. the style and colours. your animation is good. I didnt find the different cartoon snaps to be "gags" as such, but more like weird scenarios. i think because it lacked purpose it lost its ability to amuse in the comedic sense, as we laugh at comedy we can "relate" too. thank you. i rate you ten because their is nothing visually wrong with your animation.
