Below is a collection of art and tattoos inspired by the Overwatch character, Winston.
I shall keep updating this page whenever I find new art or whenever new information releases about the character.
You can also find the story behind Winston along with his abilities, ultimate ability and skins.
The Horizon Lunar Colony was established as a first step for humanity’s renewed exploration of space.
Among its residents was a group of genetically enhanced gorillas that were intended to test the effects of prolonged habitation in space.
One gorilla, designated Specimen 28, displayed such rapid brain development from the gene therapy that he was taken under the wing of Dr. Harold Winston, who taught him science and inspired him with tales of human ingenuity.
One day, after the young ape had stolen Harold’s glasses, Harold showed the ape Earth just as they were over Africa, as it appeared from the moon (prior to this, the ape had only seen the barren moonscape).
Harold told him to not see the world how it was, but how it could be.
The young gorilla passed his days assisting with the scientists’ experiments, watching the distant blue world outside his habitat window, dreaming of the endless possibilities that awaited him there.
He enjoyed life at Horizon, and regarded the human scientists as his family, and Dr. Winston his father.
But his life was thrown into chaos when the other gorillas led an uprising, killed the mission scientists, and claimed the colony for their own.
With nothing left, and unwanted by his fellow gorillas, the ape took on the name of his beloved human caretaker.
So named “Winston,” the ape built a makeshift rocket using Emergency Pod G-42 and and escaped from Launch Bay 14 to Earth, landing at Watchpoint: Gibraltar.
There he found a new home with Overwatch, an organization that represented everything he had come to admire about humanity.
Winston was finally able to live up to the heroic ideal that had been instilled in him.
