Valley of the Arkhams

Author Comments

The band "The Arkhams" commissioned me very nearly two years ago to do a cartoon for one of their instrumentals, which I can finally upload now that their new album is coming! It was described to me as "us in a bunch of old-timey kid's sailor suits fighting hordes of Lovecraftian monsters at a beach." Besides the #1 Dad (one of their own in-jokes) and some monsters from the Cthulhu Mythos, I designed all the other creatures you'll be seeing. This was my first time doing so much action and movement, much less a music video, and in the time since completing it I've learned to animate at least a little better, so keep in mind it's a bit LATE to critique this. Just let me know if you liked anything! I already know I could have relied less on tweens and symbols.

Awesome job on this for sure good to watch

I've been a Bogleech follower for a couple of years now, and I have no idea how this gem eluded me for that long... Beautiful, Scythe!

That was really fun to watch, absolutely loved it. And thank you for the Elder Thing guitar solo :)

Shub-Niggurath on drums, epic.

A bizzare juxtaposition of cute, horrific, and just lain random...

In other words, loyal to your style and an excellent example of it. Your flash is always interesting.
