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 didn't really understand the ending but great animation and pretty funny so. awesome.

If you want to see schoolboys from the past completly obliterate monsters at the beach in a psychodelic way. then this is the slice of pie for you.

Colorful flavor

That was a lot of fun to watch and is nicely polished.

The only thing I'd toss out for constructive criticism is the "#1 Dad" monster. It felt out-of-place compared to theme and design going for the animation. Re-colored to be vibrant would be my suggestion on assumption it would be changed, but not removed.
