Wei Kong by Robobotnik
Wei Kong
A Sun Wukong inpired RP character, a master of kung fu and wind magic.

Drawn and coloured with pencils and pens with some after effects in GIMP
Gouki by Robobotnik

The fearsome Akuma, Gouki.

While not my favourite Street Fighter (Chun-Li, for the record), nor my favourite Shoto (I pretty much rate all of them except the EX specific ones and Sean as higher, though no offence to those characters either as they're great too), I love drawing Akuma for some reason.  Be it his crazy hair, massive muscles, demonic expression, or the sheer force he has in his spirit.

I drew this after getting inspired by the fantastic OC Remix release, Shoto Spirits by Trenthian, Brothersynthe, and The Duke:…

Am mostly very pleased with this, though his right arm is rather janky.  Alas I couldn't get the persective right, but might amend later.

Tempted to put this under scraps, and may do if I end up colouring the piece.

Drawn on A4 paper using a 4H pencil for the rough sketch and guide lines and a 0.5 mechanical pencil bolder line work and detail.  Probably around an hour of total work.
Needle Nezumi by Robobotnik
Needle Nezumi
A character design for an oni inspired toon that may or may not be used in some RP.

Character wise she's a hot headed moody girl who prefers to settle things in a fight, for bigger fights she uses her iron club, made from part of a girder.

Creation wise I used a combination of karisma and watercolour pencils as well as markers and ink, as well as a bit of tipex and a white oil pastel.

Too a few hours to finish, am pretty happy with the result.
Dragonmage 2 by Robobotnik
Dragonmage 2
Much better.

Proportions are much improved compared to the last sketch, and I'm very happy with the result.

Once again the character in question is my friend Quin's property.
Dragonmage Concept for Friend by Robobotnik
Dragonmage Concept for Friend
A quick concept sketch for a friend's character, a dragonmage.

Somewhat annoyed at the proportions, but will rectify in a future piece.
  • Mood: Astonished
  • Listening to: Dragonforce
  • Reading: Hakodate Youjin Buraichou Himegami scanlations
  • Watching: Bad movies...kill me
  • Playing: Xenoblade, CoH, Dragon Quest IX and Minecraft
  • Eating: chicken curry
  • Drinking: Tea and mint tea
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.
