Hollow Jacks by JohnSu Hollow Jacks by JohnSu
Hollow Jacks is a lanky caretaker fashioned from garbage and "sheddings." His job is to maintain the manor in the Western Timber and to keep trees from growing into the house. Guess what? He doesn't do it.

Hollow stands at about 6'6" (~2 meters) and weighs about 30 lbs (~13kg). Having no muscles, he moves by means of a complex network of twine that originates from a ball in his chest cavity and connects to his joints. The jack on his belt is mainly ornamental but doubles as a compass, but he never uses it because he doesn't get lost (and the damn thing doesn't tell you which end is pointing where). The wings on his back are also ornamental; he can jump, be he can't fly. And though his boots have eyes and teeth, they are not alive - he merely borrowed the body parts from local carcasses. Yeah, he plans to return them. Tomorrow. He'll do it tomorrow.

My original design of Hollow included an ugly hat and no "wings," and he was a bit more like a scarecrow and had exposed bones for forearms. I eventually ditched the stupid hat and drew on the wings after I tried a scarf and it failed. As for his forearms, you can't see them in this picture, but they would probably be bones still, because calcium is cool.

If you ever did a series with this guy, that would be awesome.

Dankness spreads its wings,

the clock sounds 12,

all of the children of the light be gone,

for it is the time of the children of the night!

. . . .

that is mini-poem inspired by this picture :3!~
