Sorry for the update taking so long. I guess it’ll take a while before I manage to get back to publishing two pages per week.

---

I don’t like the first three panels here. That particular scene works much better in written form, as the thoughts of the main character are a part of the narrative. It’s not so easy to properly convey what’s happening if I can’t just show what’s going on inside Owen’s head.

One curious thing about this page is that it references a much older version of Empty Hallways (from 2010, possibly earlier). I had planned a version of this scene before I even knew that the “mysterious person” would be female. In that version of the story, the grey man’s gesture is basically him saying “you’re the second person I visit”. Accordingly, he would later do a “3” in Owen’s bedroom, and its meaning would become obvious.

Of course, this gesture does not mean that anymore.

possible meanings: peace sign (unlikely), a countdown (to what?), a countUP (to what tho???), a code (he'd have to make more than one sign, unless it's a very short code)

my guess is he's counting something, either up or down.
