Hello! My names Matthew Hogben but most people call me Hoggy :) I'm a Digital artist who loves gaming :) A LOT

Im really inspired by the legendary Patrick Brown! He has helped me to improve my art a lot with one to one chats and giving me that boost! :D Hence why some of my older pieces look a lot similar to his work BUT I now feel I have moved into my own style without needing the reference I used to use and need from him :)
I'm slowly building my way up and getting better and better the more art I do

Give a Like on Facebook :facebook: >> << If you like my stuff
Also follow me on Twitter :twitter: >> << :D
My book has finally been published and is out now! You can buy your copy now at:…
Also available on Amazon
Would just like to thank everyone who helped push my book to shelf and make my book a reality! :D

All Can I Say is You Have a Great Potential but you Only Need to Not Copy All other Drawing from other Artist, You Need to Improve Your Anatomy Drawing, but You Very Good at Coloring

Well So Sorry For My English..

Here is a video showing the process of how I do my art. No copying involved :)…

Hello! Thank you for the comment! Feedback means a lot and helps me improve onto art.
I wouldn't say I 'copy' other artists though. If I see a position I like I may use it for reference but I do come up with my own positions sometimes. All pictures have been sketched and drawn by me and I have never copied another artists picture. I used to get reference from other pictures a lot ages ago but recently have been moving more and improving a lot on coming up with stuff myself with some very minimal reference. I feel I'm progressing more and more each picture :)
And yes I do agree with working on anatomy which is why I sometimes need reference but I am slowly getting there :)
I just enjoy what I do and aim to just get better and better :)
I don't want to be known as someone who copies though :/

Right, It's Not 'Copy' I Mean , It's Just Because I'm Very Bad At English..
But Hey, I Think you will Much More Better if You Keep Practicing Everyday ( Half or 1 Hour)

And After I Watch The Video, I Suggest Don't Make the Sketch in The PC, because I Have Do That And IT Just Harder to make a good Body Proportion (Am I Saying IT Right? Body Proportion?) Just Draw the Sketch with Your Pencils and Paper (The Old Style of Drawing, yea..) and then Scan it..
But If You don't want to sketch it in the traditional Style, It's Okay.. That Is my Advice 

But Sometimes you Really Need To Use your Imagination to Make a Good Position and Proportion (Am I Saying It Right?) And If You Have Time, Watch Some Action Movies and Play Games to Make A Reference (That is How I Improve My Imagination and Vision (I Hope I Said it Right..))

Keep Your Awesome Job, I'd Like to see More AC art and your GTAO Art.. ;)

Best Regards.. ;)

I do also sketch with paper :) like I am in this video…

But yeah I am getting better with everything as I do each piece and I do watch films and play games a lot I am a heavy gamer and a massive geek! Haha :)
So I do use my imagination a lot and love doing what I do! :D
Reference is key to a great picture sometimes :)

Thanks! :)
