Abyssal

Author Comments

The deep-sea abyss (marine biology) meets the uncanny valley (psychology) in my second pure "horror" story. It's not supposed to take place in water, but it is based on the common fear of being caught in the open ocean, never knowing what might stare back at you from the murk.

I also put careful consideration into the types of television characters that people found traumatic when they were younger, and based two monsters directly off notorious examples of "nightmare fuel" from British television (they're in the same shot. I'm not British, but I do enjoy their kid's shows)

I wasn't sure how to rate the nudity or violence in this. There's only one instance of each, both rather subtle and abstract.

Not counting the double-upload of "ants," this is my thirteenth cartoon and I didn't even plan it that way!

Thanks for the feature! I wasn't expected one at all :.

I recognized Pob, but who was the long-nosed guy?

Are you sure that the one-eyed creature isn't pob?

I relate to this quite a bit. I would've gone a bit farther into the twisted things, though.
Great flash! 9/10 because the art apart from the abyssal things could've been a bit better than they were.

Wonderful!

Guy the animation is very scary and amazing! I love Abyssal beings, love the way you animated!

Wow.....Amazing

I find it weird how he's able to go back to sleep after that..Geeze...Anyway this seems to have a deep meaning in it....Though i can't put my finger on it.
