Wave Twisters Concept Art



I commissioned a few months to work up some ideas for a stage play version for the animated hip-hop/DJing/MCing film  "Wave Twisters' 
It was mad idea that I totally feel in love and it gave me the licence to go a bit mad with the it. 
the first design is of a DJ Mecha. I came up with he DJ being in the brain and operating the mecha with turntables and having the mecha itself being made of speakers.

The final two are for concept of what it would look like up on stage. I took a scene from the film and then the other as just a basic layout of the show.

Your move....creep! Robocop Commission

I recently got commissioned by the awesome pairing of Gavin Mitchell and Emily Owen. Gavin's a super talented artist  and he's worked on Santa Claus vs The Nazis and currently working on Trolltooth Wars. You should check out Gavin's work at http://gavinmitchell.blogspot.co.uk

Anyway back to the commissions!!! I had to draw Robocop for the anniversary and I could of not more happier. Robocop has to be in my top 5 films. I remember watching at an age I shouldn't of watched it and totally blown away and still am now.

Am quite happy about this turned out and tried a few new techniques, new pens and a few risks. I attempted to draw it about 3 times, i either get the pose right, the pose I chose wasn't working or just having a bad day drawing. But in the end I went this pose and thought I could inject some strong dynamics to make the image pop. So with like he's walking out of the mist at his lower right foot, he's got dents and scratches from the battle previous etc. The parts am happy about are my brush work and using grey tone topics. The brush pens I use to use all the time and really staring to dig them again and what marks and shapes you can make with them. The grey tone markers where a massive risk because I haven't used that often in commissioned work. I was trying to give a sort of screen tone effect, which didn't happen. However I was really happy with the way it turned out and how I got the tones blend well with each other. Hopefully I will get a bit more practice and confidence in the future.

Anyway he's the geezer with added BIG ROUND shoulders!!!

Game Character Design

This is a little game project that I was working on a few months back. RGP/beat-em-up game, which is based in a futuristic, cyberpunk world with hints of Lord of the Rings and fantasy elements. I designed three characters The Leader, The Wizard and The Big Silent Guy. I didn't get a chance to colour all the characters but hopefully will get chance again.

Lets get this blog up and running AGAIN MATT!!!!!!!


Well this my first post in god knows how long (I think its been over a year). A lot of things have happened since then. I've worked on a few awesome projects since my last post. I drew a short story for the collectors hardcover edition of 'The Kill Screen' written by Mike Garley, art by Josh Cherwell and lettering by Mike Stock. It's a great book where Humanity has reached it's Kill Screen and computer errors have now transcended into the our own, where the only the strongest will survive. Go check it out here https://www.facebook.com/Thekillscreen/
Aswell as this I've trying to work on 'The Big Couch' which will seriously kick into gear from October. There's other stuff which I'll post up later this week, one of which I was mad about working on!!! In other great news I have a table at Nottingham Comic Con and Though Bubble this year. I can't wait, this is my first convention since Demoncon. I'll be sharing a table with the awesome Marc Laming and Dave Stokes. I'll be selling Big Couch Prints, sketchbooks, original art and commissions. Before I go I though I should show you some sneaky few pages of The Big Couch.
