Pretty Star Heavenly Hotaru by Robobotnik
Pretty Star Heavenly Hotaru
Complete and uploaded.

My Magical girl for an RP I'm joining.

Took a few hours, started before midnight at it's now 03:23am, and used Karisma Pencils for colouring, along with an S sized Sepia fine liner for inking, and a marker for the skin.  Did some extra work in GIMP2.0 afterwards to clean up the image a little.

Rather pleases with the result, though the Mother of Pearl effect I tried to create in her dress didn't come through sadly.

An old design for a cat/fox hybrid I drew 10 years ago for an online friend of mine who  haven't spoken to in years due to the communities we were a part of sadly fragmenting with time.
Karate Gal by Robobotnik
Karate Gal
A concept for a brawler/gang leader heroine.

Practices Karate

No name currently.

Inspiration wasn't actually taken from Capcom's Final Fight/Street fighter character Poison, deliberately at least, but from their Street Fighter II boss Bison, along with my love of fighter girls.
Star Wars RP toon incomplete by Robobotnik

A concept design for a Star Wars Bounty Hunter for an RP I'll be a part of.  Her name is Vega Devana, and she's a Scout class.

Done in pencil.
  • Mood: Astonished
  • Listening to: Dragonforce

  • Watching: Bad movies...kill me
  • Playing: Xenoblade, CoH, Dragon Quest IX and Minecraft

When did that happen?!  And how?!

Wow, reached a landmark and have been doing naff all to reach it, this calls for some art, so will get on that tomorrow!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the DA page of a Brummie born Welsh half breed named Matthew Hartley. Here you will find my various worked of varied quality, ranging from crap, to not quite so crap!

A lot of my work is character design based, often with the intent of making a game or comic that never happen, though this is partly due to lack of talent, though I do try at least.

Although I've been bad mouthing my own work here, I do hope you enjoy it. I'm still learning, and am in need of retaking old lessons, but I think I've still got something to show.

I started drawing when I was very young, influenced by video games, cartoons and comics, mostly Sonic, and grew from there. These days I think my inspiration is still heavily built on those three aspects, though I love visiting galleries when I get the chance, and love water colour and impressionism.

Lately I've mostly been sketching, and have had less work coming onto my page, but we'll see what happens.

I'm also involved in a movie review web series with my oldest friend David Healy, called Sofa Reviews.

Thanks for the watch!  And Super-extra-double thanks as I see you then went on and watched three of the artists I commissioned!  That's what I want to have happen, and it was nice to see it actually work.
