Deric Albright is The Winged Man. He’s an overanalyzing perfectionist who some have called pessimistic. Stuck in the past, he loves using traditional pencils and inks on paper to bring to life high-fantasy and comic book style creations. He’s also been known to color occasionally using watercolors on paper or photoshop. Deric gains inspiration from fantasy artists like Frank Frazetta, Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell, and many others. The work of comic artists such as Jim Lee, Mike Ploog, and David Finch have also inspired his inking style. He also loves sci-fi and fantasy movies and listens to a ton of science podcasts. When he’s not drawing he can be found spending time with his two daughters and wife or lurking in his basement gym, trying (and failing) to get huge. In addition to being an artist, Deric is a U.S. Air Force Veteran and current Web Designer. He hopes to one day transition to writing and producing art for his very own comics or short stories–but doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing, someone please help him!
