The Hollow Men: Pages 4 and 5 by nicholaskole The Hollow Men: Pages 4 and 5 by nicholaskole
I think it's been long enough now that this has been published, that it's about time I posted some more of The Hollow Men around here!
These are pages 2 and 3 of the story- I won't be posting the whole thing here, only a kind of extended 'preview'
for the full story, you can order Flight Volume 8 here:

This was really where the dreaming started. This scene, and as it plays out across the next two pages, was the first and central thing I knew had to happen. I felt a lot of personal pressure to get these two pages right, because to me the whole story hinges around "It is a lonely thing, to be free".

This is simply stunning. Yesterday I just randomly paid 'Flight' and this one is my absolutely favourite comic in whole book, so I was really happy when I realized that you have deviantart! You're my new favourite artist.

Ah, this was one of my favorites of volume 8! I love what you did with the colors vs. the grayscale you had before.

Thanks! it was a struggle the whole way- sometimes I felt like I was ruining my black and whites with color. But I'm happy with the final product :)

Hurray!! I finally get to favorite these! :heart: Maybe its my monitor, but digital just doesn't do the colors justice. The colors in the book are so much more vibrant and lovely.

Oh really? wow- must be your monitor because the digital colors were pretty dulled in printing. Ah well :)

*Looking at the print, now* Hmm, you're right! you know what it is? The contrast is so much higher in the book. O_O I cant believe how much detail was actually lost in print!

yup!
I adjusted the files to be as light as they are (and, I think, lighter) to send them to print because I knew they'd darken- it's hard to figure out when you're not doing it all yourself!
But yeah- I'm glad to throw these up here for my own satisfaction, because there was a lot of care and detail that it is gratifying to show that didn't quite show in the end product. That said: it's really WAY more important how everything is composed, arranged, and told. Detail is icing :)

"it's a lonely thing, to be free."

Never thought of it that way. So sad. :(

Lovely page, though. :)
