***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

Bravo

Another wonderful piece of work. The way you lay these out is revolutionary to me, and it works so well for the story you're telling that I just can't imagine it done any other way. The rough but fine-detailed lines along with beautifully chosen music just creates an atmosphere you can't get from just pages.

Although I must admit I got a bit anxious and had already watched it at your main website (What can I say, I loved the first episode) it was still a thrill to watch it again.

I can't wait to see what happens next.

Once again

This actually feels like it would be a real graphic novel or even a movie as you animated some parts of it. Keep making this kind of stuff. Could get really popular...

Fascinating

I love your style, the way you put so much feeling in every picture, and the pictures and paintings themselves are great, and you're very good at drawing perspectives and still art...
I believe you don't even have to THINK about the story because it just floads out of your mind...
The colors make the story even more captivating..
A real masterpiece. I am honored to be notified by yopu for this :)
And thank you for sharing this with the world.

Amazing!

I wish that I had the ability to think of such stunning and powerful stories, while still being able to share it over the canvas in a dazzling clash of paint and talent.
I am utterly glad you sent this to me to share, it was certainly worth my time.
Don't stop this type of art or story telling, even though it may be hard to follow for some people. 10/10 for great poetry, great paintings, and a beautiful story.
Well Done.
