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.



Your character design was so interesting, I just wish there was a story with it.

Scythemantis responds:

Well, there's a detailed world and story *behind* all these monsters, but yeah, I didn't really touch on any of it with the cartoon..perhaps next time!

Cool Concept

One thing I really have to point out about this is that it basically is an art gallery of all your little creations. Except instead of just putting a still picture around you made an entire movie with a story to show off your works. Great job!


The art was amazing, and I found it to be quite humorous... I hope to see a sequel! :D

I still dont really know why... but

I loved every second of that, kudos for making something Ive never seen before, and making it pretty fucking awesome


I always love seeing these quirky little pieces on portal. I respect originality to a high degree, and I love your character design!
