***STRONGLY RECOMMENDED: WATCH IN FULLSCREEN***

***ALSO RECOMMENDED: WATCH THE FIRST PART BEFORE THIS ONE***
The first part of the story is also available on Newgrounds or my website, both linked through my profile.

***

The Boy with Nails for Eyes is an independent motion comic, set in a grimy, grey little seaside town trapped by a brick-and-iron wall of factories. The story follows a young boy as he undertakes a quest that will draw him to the town's knotted heart, and into the domain of the shadowy hunger that stalks its streets.

The chapter introduces the central character of the story, and relates a life changing event that happened to him several weeks ago...

***

The story is best viewed in FULLSCREEN MODE, so that the text is clearly legibile without having to use the zoom function. Full instructions on viewing the story are given in the loading screen.

A lofi version of the comic, featuring the images and text only, is available on my website (www.basement-garden.co.u k), which is linked from my profile. Also available are wallpapers and music downloads.

A quick note on the text, since a few people have mentioned this before. I always intended the comic to be viewed fullscreen (I even considered making it obligatory, or automatically going to fullscreen when the comic starts, but I don't like that idea any more than, probably, anyone else does), which is the size at which the text is comfortably legible.

Unfortunately the highest file dimensions allowed by Newgrounds is even smaller than the original file dimensions (1060px/745px), so for this reason fullscreen is an even better idea from my point of view. There is a click-zoom function, in case it's desired.

And enjoy!

Cheers

Wow

I was wondering how you were going to improve from your last submission, and the direction of this chapter was just far more involved.

The art was stunning as always: very detailed and ripen with symbolism. As for the progression of the story, I would definitely read through your cryptic poetry to uncover the depths of your imagination.

The direction of your art was very engaging; especially how you captured movement: it was awe inspiring.

Sorry for waiting so long to check this out; I'll definitely be sure to watch the next chapter as soon as the moment is oppurtune.

Well done.

Outstanding

There really isn't anything I can say that hasn't been said already. It iss amazing, as expected. The artwork, the music, the transitions... All very high quality work.

Close to perfection

The images, the music, it's all amazing. The greatness of this comic makes the tiny, tiny things I want to complain about almost invisible, but yet annoying.

I love this.

This is my only request:
PLEASE work in a higher resolution. The fact that the images get pixelated when blown up really bugs me, especially when you have included a way to do just that (zoom). If the next chapter looks as good as this one, and does not look pixelated in fullscreen view, I'll give it a 10/10.

Stunning

This one was as stunning, and beautiful as the last. Each scene grabbed my attention and shook it violently, the transitions and the music fit so perfectly with the frames, this storyline is simply amazing.

very good

well you've done it again. the artwork in this and the music compliment each other amazingly to create a moving atmosphere with eerie sections as well as tension in others.
i found myself gasp slightly half way through this after realizing that i hadn't actually taken a breath for a minute and a half subconsciously due to the tension this created.
bravo
