Well, this is certainly more disturbing than that Cthulhu blog from earlier today.

Cyriak is awesome, but I seriously worry about that mans mind.

cows & cows & cows is less complicated/trippy, but I think it's probably more disturbing.

This is kind of like the animated sequences from Monty Python's Flying Circus meets Lovecraft. On DMT.

Well, Clarice - have the lambs stopped subdividing?

Can't sleep. Spider cows will eat me.

I guess it's cows all the way down. Huh.

Also, he has made this... thing, which will probably prevent me from sleeping ever again: something.

Death to videodrome!

I definitely found the ovine geometry one more disturbing than the cows video.

I think my favourite bit about the cows video is how it eventually transitions back into normalcy, with the cows standing in the field looking at you like "hey guys what's everyone staring at?"

I don't think he'll ever be able to top Moo!, in which cancerous cowblobs and robotic aliens rock out (and destroy the world).

This is my current favorite thing on the internet. What a wonderful, bizarre, and awesome thing we have created.

Was I the only one who thought I was about to be asked to consider a spherical cowsheep?

Imagine how long this would take to render using old microsheeps..

Top Tip: Next time you can't sleep, DO NOT try counting the sheep in this video

Laika, the first space sheep forced to leave home without its sunglasses for superstitious reasons.

How does he do it?

For my money, my favourite Cyriak video is Cycles, even if (because?) it's not so Lovecraftian.

As far as sheep go, it's even more surprising than this!

Cyriak has an amazing facility for ripping out the seams of reality and restitching them in unexpected new ways.

sswiller: "How does he do it"

I have been very curious about this myself. I could be very wrong about this, but my current hunch is that the basic technique is about using 3d animation software with models that have video clips as their textures.

How does he do it?

Personally I think he has an LSD lab in his basement.

From Cyriak's FAQ:

What software do you use?

Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. And occasionally Flash.

Are there any animation tutorials that would help me rip copy emulate what you do?

After my secret animation formulas are you? I guard them with lasers and electrified guard dogs. Rock hard they are, don't mess.

I've always distrusted sheep anyway... don't let the baaing and the gambolling fool you, the're monsters with woolly coats on. Look at their eyes. They. Are. Just. Not. Natural.

This guy's videos are about 1,000 times scarier than the "lame drawings of Lovecraft's monsters" blog recently posted here.

Scratch that: these aren't primarily laugh-inducing. Infinitely scarier.
