Qua – Devil Eyes

Here’s another sprite animation by Paul Robertson. It reminds us that we’ll live forever in the heart of those who loved us. And/or that ultra violence and ultra cute characters mix very well.

Qua is electronic musician Cornel Wilczek. Devil Eyes is a track on his 2007 album Painting Monsters On Clouds.

The video is available in the two flavours: the official release (4 minutes) from external links, and the extended version (6 minutes) from my server.

Happy Land is a 2D animated kids show. Quite creepy, if you ask me, in the way I feel Teletubbies are creepy.
