    Default no matter however

    Hi,

    No matter how hard I try, I can't draw as well as you. (It is OK)

    Can we put 'however' instead of 'how' before an adjective?

    -No matter however hard I try, I can't draw as well as you.

    Thanks.

    Can we put 'however' instead of 'how' before an adjective? If you delete "No matter".

    - No matter However hard I try, I can't draw as well as you.

    Thanks.
