Valley of the Arkhams

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.



i enjoyed the 20s feel, but I thought that it should have gotten a higher rating because the ridiculous amout of blood


Loved the monsters. Characters seemed little weird. But it was very creative and artistic. Great job on it.

Great work! I always enjoy a good Lovecraftian flash. By the way, was that "The Colour Out of Space" that was sucked into the ghost trap?

I have no idea what the plot was but it was pretty entertaining to watch. Good job.

wierd, in a good way

the movie in itself seemed very strange to me, the monsters looked like they belonged in a twisted horrer setting, and the humans looked like they belonged in old Walt Disney cartoons from in the 50's. but even so, it was very impressive.

That was the intent, and something I also do in my other cartoons and comics; I make monsters more detailed and realistic, while humans and normal animals are cartoonish. It makes the monsters seem more horrific and weird in comparison, I think :D
