Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
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.
