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.

Thanks! :)

Main reason is because I don't really set aside time to draw anymore, and when I do I just can't seem to find inspiration.

Sadly the only times I do draw is at work as a way of filling time I can't use, and also because I get the most desire to draw when I'm working.

I have had several attempts at trying to realise characters like Superman, Batman, Lex Luthor, The Joker, Bane, Spiderman, Wolverine, Hulk, Dr Doom, and more in a Tokusatsu style (Kamen Spider being an idea :P) or based on manga heroes, like a Kenshiro based version of Iron Fist, but my attempts to draw them haven't been so great.

I still like trying to figure that stuff out, and am hoping to get back to my old ways in the near future, so maybe we'll see what I can create soon. :)
