Short Story Illustration!

Ben Sinclair talking about the wonderful piece of artwork that he did for Watcher.

Recently, I have been spending a lot of my time on this piece, which is an illustration for a fellow blogger on WordPress. It depicts a mysterious character called the Watcher and gives an image for a very short story. This was done digitally and I had fun focusing on the lighting, which creates a dramatic effect to make the Watcher seem more mysterious. The bright sunlight casts a shadow over him, causing him to have very dull colours, compared to the surrounding brighter colours. It was also interesting to experiment with the blur tool in photoshop, to blur out the background and bring more focus into the main character, much like a camera would.

Hope you like it!
Here’s a link to the short story if you would like a read! :

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
