The Hollow Men: Pages 6 and 7 by nicholaskole The Hollow Men: Pages 6 and 7 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:

Page 6 is probably the key to the whole thing. I think it's what I am most pleased with...and surprised by. Sometimes the writing and pacing and art all come together and something cool happens...I'm kind of just glad to be there when it clicks.
Also: the serpents were SO much fun to write and choreograph! Ach- just thinking about it makes me want to hit the drawing board again. I love making comics :)

Just had to drop you a line. I took a look when you put these pages up, but they've stuck in my mind since then, not just because zomg, interesting unfinished story, but your use of contrasting tone. I love the way you infuse light into your works, full of bright joy, the perfect counterpoint to your light and energetic linework. In these pages though, focussing in your composition in this range of tones is giving your scenes so much depth!

I read your comments on the b&w stage and while I can see how that would feel 'done', by applying your layered, transparent colours (for me at least) the world is made immersive and alive. It completely sucked me in. It's a combination of the beautiful composition with light/dark at its center, and the really powerful use of colour. It's as subtle yet effective as really good movie colour grading, if that makes sense...

Anyway, enough blithering, just wanted you to know you hit the spot for me ^_^

^_^ thanks for the thoughtful comment! It makes my day to hear when people take the time to notice the different aspects of the work that goes into something like this. I learned a LOT while I was working on this. In the end, I think you're right- it needed to be in color! And the exciting thing is, even when I'm not satisfied, there's room to improve!
Glad you liked it- Cheers!

Hooray! Now I have a smile too, I should do this more often ^_^ Having been geeking your comics section around my film-making/scriptwriting mates and taking another look myself, the progression is plain, and I can't wait to see your new projects in the light of the Flight work. Now, I'm going to go try and get over my 'comics, where do I start?!' block and just try. Thank you for being an inspiration!

mmmm...that's excellent to hear! It's very challenging to convey a feeling, especially of silence, when the pacing is up to the reader! but I'm glad you're picking it up! :D
