Boy with Nails for Eyes 3

The first part of the story is also available on Newgrounds or my website (the second is in a slightly higher resolution, since there's no filesize issue there). Both are linked through my profile, or just go to:



The Boy with Nails for Eyes is an independent motion comic. The story is set in a grimy, grey little seaside town trapped by a brick-and-iron wall of factories. It 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.

In this chapter, the central character of the story, Bobby, sleeps - and a series of strange dreams drips through him.


The story is best viewed in FULLSCREEN MODE, but the text is larger than in past chapters so it should be easier to read without going fullscreen. 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 at my site (www.basement-garden.co.u k).




Great work once again. I loved the drawings and the colors in this one.
The animations have also improved and have more movement.
If my memory's not wrong, the text is also much easier to read. I needn't click once to read it.
But I agree with Hemfrik about this part not being as good as the other two. I couldn't really get into it. It didn't "grip" me, at least not all the time.
The music was very well chosen and used once again.

My favourite parts were the ones before the puppets.

So I give this a 5/5 and a 9/10 :)
Good luck with the next one!
Oh and fix that end screen.. chapter 3


This , as the first one is an awsome litle poetic story. The animation,the sketches and the text are all sync. to make an ambiance and make uss feel the emotions of the story. I'm in 3D and 2D animation and realisation and this would be a masterpiece here man.

This is a poetic and an overall masterpiece. I have nothing more to say, you have left my breathless.


I really like these stories, reminded me of old bedtime stories or fairy tales I heard. Dark and magical in a way.

Me and Bobby must have had parents who read the same books lol

It's good, but...

... it's nowhere near what the others delivered.

Though I must say the art is still nice, and the music was beuatifully incorporated, the whole piece seemed far too long and slow when compared to the previous installments.

The visual presentation was far lighter in colour and thus also in tone, and while that's not a bad thing per se, I was more engaged by the darker and more sporadic visuals of the first two.

It seems you're getting a lot of praise, which is well deserved, but this one didn't deliver what I have come to enjoy in your work. However, if I am correct in my assumptions, this was just a dream sequence, and the original tone will return in the next chapter.

I hope I don't come across as too negative, you're still doing great.
