Cory Smith, Is a self-taught artist. His interest in art began as a child while watching his father draw. After High School he took a couple courses in figure drawing at the local community college, it was there that drawing both the male and female forms and learning about anatomy helped him develop his talent as an artist and a sculptor. Over the years he has dabbled in many different mediums of art: pencil and charcoal sketches, acrylics and oil on canvas and sculpting. In 11 years he has completed 23 statues, mostly of Batman and Superman’s arsenal of villains. But now he's back to pencil portraiture. His original works of art as well as prints can be found at numerous conventions throughout the US.
