Creature of the Forest

“A soft hacking that grew steadily until it had reached a pitch that was almost deafening. We swung around. Our flashlights split the night air as we searched, panicked, for we knew what that sound meant. We knew, because they had warned us. We had been warned. And we had not listened.” – Words by Matthew Zane Winfield

This is a personal project that I completed recently that will form part of an ongoing collaborative series with words by my brother, Matthew Winfield. The original character sketch was done last year as part of the Inktober challenge I took part in.

I found Ben's portfolio online and was drawn in by his black and white work, which was perfect for my comic. When I got in touch with him he responded quickly and the budget and deadline agreed upon by us was kept. For some of the character designs that had a lot of moving parts it was easy to go back to back in email to get the designs that were requested. He is enthusiastic about his work and eager to go through the stages of concept art to flesh out characters.
