Just wanted to introduce myself and my art

Post by CoreyGalal on Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:01 pm

My name is Corey Galal. I am a collector of vintage toys My religion is Sith. I have only been collecting for about 5 years. During that time I shared on facebook some of my art. To my surprise I was asked if it was for sale. Since then I have sold hundreds of paintings all around the world. In November I finally became an official Star Wars artist for Topps. So far Ive work on Rogue One series 2 and the 40th anniversary set (plus Walking Dead season 6). I owe alot to my friends in the star wars community, that some have become like family to me. You can find some of my art on my artpage [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] . I will post a few here. my artist proofs are coming back soon and will be selling them. I also of course do commissions. Thanks again for looking Corey

welcome  on board

Those paintings are great. clapping   Do you use oil, acrylic or something else??

Your signature initials looks almost exactly like mine. lol!   You can see mine on some of my cardbacks, by my 8 year old self.

I'm going to move your thread to meet the Artoo's Projector Beam area, if that's alright.

Love the "boy in heaven", must be hard to represent specific package graphics accurately and have everything maintain a unified style and level of detail.

Looks like a painting right away but there's also no question about what anything is. clapping
