RD Bio - Matthew the Honchkrow by TamarinFrog RD Bio - Matthew the Honchkrow by TamarinFrog
characters mentioned in the bio:

Sibelius: fav.me/d6aage8
Elizabeth: fav.me/d6gqqrj
Marlowe [bio coming]

And today we have Matthew who has become one of fans' favourite! I admit, I enjoy writing and drawing him too. And look at that! His history needed more room than the others! He's that badass!

It has been a while since a sad backstory. Matthew and Marlowe had to go through a lot and I hope this shows why they are so close. Marlowe has become one of my new fave characters and I felt it was important to tell why they are so close. And you could ask why I didn't write more about Matthew's wife in his history (yeah, it's kinda big deal). Well, I decided that I'll let the comic tell that. (which will continue once all main pokemon bios are done.).

Matthew & Random Doom me

Although I do love matthew (he is one of ny favorites), there is one flaw i noticed.

In DD, didnt he say he was born in the ranch? Or was that from an old bio or something?

That is old canon. I plan to go back to the old pages and update them to reflect these new bios. :)

Hi. I just joined Deviantart, and this is my first time commenting. I've been looking at your art for a while and I absolutely adore it. Never stop drawing, and I know I'm not the only one who thinks that. Although there's a question I've been meaning to ask. Why did you change Matthew's relic?

Hello! Welcome to dA! Hope you enjoy it here!
And thank you! So happy to hear you like my works. :hug:
And the reason why I changed it was because I didn't want to mix real life religious symbols into pokemon.

Wow. To be honest, I thought I'd have to wait a week for a reply. This is such an honor. Oh, and I guess it makes sense to change the relic. One more thing, do you think you could draw a backstory for Matthew. He's my fav.

Oh! I would LOVE to draw scenes from his (and Marlowe's) past. I'll see if I ever get around it.

when matthew gets angry and in some comics he has this dark aura around him does that make him a shadow pokemon? or is that just his dark pulse i've been wondering that for ages *looks around cluelessly* Reading

I just found out that "Sky Attack's in-game descriptions erroneously state that it has a high critical hit rate." Does that mean we can claim Anime Physics for Matthew's Sky Attack instead of game physics? :XD:

... Wow, he sure has the most dark and serious past. No wonder why he became so power-hungry.
OK, Mathew is definitely escalating to my favorite characters.

Quick nitpick in the "Bio" section: "is awed by" would mean that he is the one in awe, which seems rather unlikely all thinks considered.

I know a lotta people said this already, but seriously, Matthew's pose is BADASS. I really like his extending feathery "hand." :)
And I believe you did a great job portraying the reason of his and Marlowe's closeness. Definitely one of the best bios so far.

Hmm, British accent, a gentleman's manner and a violent streak. I must say, Matthew seems pretty close to being a villain.

He has a british accent? *loves him 10 times more now*

Love that you changed the cross to something more poke-religious? Looks like Arcues's thing. -u- I could be crazy.

Hehe, yes. It is inspired by arceus. Felt fitting since they live in Sinnoh and arceus comes from there.
Reply
:iconrika35:
Rika35 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, I didn't think of the Sinnoh part XD I mainly thought that it was because Arcues is kind of "god" in the poke'verse.
Or, that's how I see it.

:icontamarinfrog:
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, I see it as a poke God too. But I kinda feel though that every region holds their own legendaries in bigger respect though. Like I think in Unova zekrom and reshiram are kinda their "gods".
