The nightbreak is a creepy creature of the darkness and making it had some unique aspects to it. I had the idea of a creature hiding behind a tree, but I needed a tree to start with. A real tree trunk would be too heavy for me to deal with, so I made one out of paper mache. I started with a cardboard tube that I gave plenty of layers of paper strip mache to. Lots of pulp for texture and then attached to a plywood base with glue and spray foam.
