Cory Smith is a freelance illustrator currently focusing on pencil portraiture. As a self taught artist, he has not received any formal training so to speak. His interest in art began as a child while watching his father draw. The only education he received was 2 figure drawing classes 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. he has dabbled in many different mediums of art including pencil and charcoal sketches, acrylics and oil on canvas and sculpting. His original works of art can be found all over the USA and in Canada at the conventions he does.
