***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

A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

another masterpiece in the collaboration of art, music and history of a twisted melancholic world.
great ideas out of this genius mind.

Superb

well, let me start of by saying sorry, because, i just recently learned by clicking on the selected on the animation itself it wouldn't just fast forward the scenes but it would zoom it in, so... sorry about that "font too small" on the first part.. but other than that your work is Superb, nothing else i could... i just wish the next one would be released soon

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.

I'm excited for the next chapter.

I absolutely adore this.

I am swept away by your powerful transitions throughout the piece. The decaying heart, the blood drop, and the fish all really shook me in my seat since they were instantaneous and just really grabbed a hold of me.

The artistic style and palette, such as the preceding chapter, is very powerful in itself and is wonderful for this tale. The way the text is presented in the story is also moving. At a few times I hoped that the text would be presented a little faster or a little slower, but I quickly had second thoughts once the text fell together amongst each other and really brought together the piece.

The musical score is very beautiful as well - very gentle, but powerful, present; very ominous yet majestic. Felt appropriate to the story's setting as well.

I am quite eager to continue reading this series. :)
