A short cartoon incorporating some of my favorite aspects of biology and horror. Internet discussion of nightmare fuel, creepypasta and the uncanny valley have all contributed!

They're meant to be nameless and mysterious, but I did give nicknames to all the creatures so I could recognize the files, of course. In order of appearance:

-Bogglemen
-Goliathan
-Muzzle & Gnawbaby
-Dumbo heads (inspired by the Ocean Sunfish, but it's probably not obvious)
-Gaper and Sophagus (based on blobfish and basking sharks)
-Chuckleheads!!! (also my favorite obsolete insult)
-Void snort
-Sex angler (lol, yeah)
-Scrutiner (pretty much just the face of a deep-sea hatchetfish)
-Spore angels (inspired by Clione, a type of sea slug)
-Pucker & Nosey (actually based on "Pob" and "Noseybonk" from 80's television in the UK)
-Peepers
-Grumbler
-The swallower

For some reason I get nostalgic vibes from this. Maybe it's because of a documentary about deep sea creatures I saw when I was 4 years old (I used to watch a crapton of nature documentaries as a kid :D), and because I find the concept of sea monsters to be frightening, disturbing and really fascinating to me. That and I also love bizarre and otherworldly creatures.
Great job! (^^)
