Cory Godbey Show

Cory Godbey has announced that he is having an art exhibition April 3rd. Prepare to have your socks rocked off.  If you are in Greenville, SC around thereabouts you should stop in and check it out.  

I have been able to go over and spy on him as he has been working on the show a few times in the past few weeks and it is looking really great. (He did most of the show with his arm in a sling. See example here.
He has posted a lot of progress on the paintings on his Lightnightrains blog as well as the back stories to these images.  One of my favorite aspects of Cory's work is his really wonderful sense of color theory. These thumbnail color comps for the show are really splendid: 

This show will be rather unique in that he will be displaying a lot of this developmental material at the show itself. It should be a really great insight into how he develops his images. I'm really looking forward to it.


  1. You can't begin to know how much I value these WIP's that you generous professional artists post. I have visited Cory's blog after visiting here and have learned many valuable tips through watching your processes. Thank you and best to Cory on his art show.

  2. That top WIP just broke my heart. Really inspiring work. Love the Hobbit series as well!
