My name is Matthew Ryan and I am an Illustrator that lives to create exciting characters and worlds for others to enjoy.

I love to work alongside people who are passionate about their projects, giving me a huge boost and inspiring me to create exciting, dynamic artwork that compliments their vision. I put a strong emphasis on research before I start any work, allowing me to better explore the brief as well as developing a more diverse selection of designs

Past work has included comic book pages, card design, board games, book illustrations, environments, and concept art. These have been throughout various genres such as science fiction, fantasy, superheroes, military, western and many more. Notable projects include artwork for a successfully funded kickstarter project, as well as having illustrations in several published books.

For any job opportunities or if you have any further questions to ask, you can email me at illustration@mattr.org.uk. My website along with a bit more information about my skills and past commissions can be found at mattr.org.uk.

My name is Matthew Ryan and I am an Illustrator that lives to create exciting characters and worlds for others to enjoy. Having graduated in 2009 with a BA Hons in Illustration from the University for the Creative Arts in Maidstone, I was keen to develop a career as an Illustrator. My intention was to specifically focus on the area of comic books and concept design, however I feel I should not just limit myself to these two areas and instead have looked at all types of visual narrative work.

 

I love to work alongside people who are passionate about their projects, giving me a huge boost and inspiring me to create exciting, dynamic artwork that compliments their vision. I put a strong emphasis on research before I start any work, allowing me to better explore the brief as well as developing a more diverse selection of designs. My strengths lie in my idea generation, allowing me to come up with a variety of designs in order to explore the client's brief thoroughly. I would like to think that this includes exciting and creative solutions that stand out thanks to my unique style of illustrating.

 

Past work has included comic book pages, card design, board games, book illustrations, environments, and concept art. These have been throughout various genres such as science fiction, fantasy, superheroes, military, western and many more. Within this site you will find a selection of work from these commissions; I’ve included a diverse selection to give you a better idea of everything I am capable of.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi. I use some default photoshop brushes and customise them a bit. I use the "Solid Colour fill layer" for each colour since I'm not really a painter (and often am never sure what colours i'm going to use), and use the smudge tool with a custom brush for the shadow and highlight.
I'm trying to stay away from using the other fill layers at the moment, though I have only really started working this way recently.
