Matt is capable of many styles and techniques. His primary style is the smooth, highly finished CGI style which is represented by the first gallery below. In the second gallery you will find a second CGI style that is rougher, showing the underlying polygonal structure that Matt likes to call lowpolymatt. And there is a third gallery of his scratchboard, or scraperboard, style that is recent to us but you can see Matt is masterful at it.
