Hello, this is Victor Cañizares Coleman, but online I am known as James Corck.

I'm a graphic designer, illustrator, artist, and every day I do my best to improve my artistic skills, trying out new things, drawing for others and myself. You may wonder "Why an artist? Why don't you find a job that pays better and is safer?". Well, I read once that sane people become lawyers, doctors, or something other that pays well and has a secured position. If you are insane you make movies, write books, and do pictures. I guess I am insane then. Besides, I tried that whole "better job that pays well" thing for three years, and those were the most miserable years of my life. I only feel good doing this, I genuinely do. Doing otherwise would be to betray what makes me being me.

I come from a family of artists. My great grandfather was an artist. My grandfather was an artist. My mother was an artist. And I want to continue that lineage.

I'm the creator of Ask Movie Slate, an ask blog on Tumblr where I review movies with my character, a cute unicorn called Movie Slate. I also illustrate the comic series "Old Appleoosa: Tales from Eq-Westria" written by Fernindt, "I Will Never Leave You" and "Sanguine Kindness" written by Rated-R-Ponystar, and the comic strip series "Fur With Cream" (currently on hiatus).

I've worked for "BronyScot" doing graphic design for their convention, and came up with those "Best Pony Logo" edits a few years ago. I am also working with Silver Quill on his review show "After the Fact" as a title card illustrator.

I hope you all like what you see in my gallery, and I encourage you all to let me know what you think of my artwork in the comments.

Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you all have a wonderful time.

Hello everyone, I haven't done one of these in a while.

I'm going to take a week-long break from uploading pictures and interacting online. There are several reasons that have led me to make this decision.

One of them is, I want to focus solely on finishing pending drawings without having to worry about sharing, posting and managing my artwork. Since I am a one man army I do all the social networking myself, and that tends to bite a big chunk out of my day. I hope that, without having to take care of this for a week, I'll be able to bite off a good chunk off of my current queue.

Another reason why I am taking this break is because I'm nearing the point of burning out. I have, right at this moment, five separate projects I am participating on (with their respectively different degrees of involvement). This much workload has finally taken its toll on me, and my level of stress is off the roof. I feel terrible, I barely sleep, I barely eat, and I've cut down my outings to zero. All I do is go upstairs to my studio and draw. I need a break from this routine, I haven't had a proper stress-free break in months.

One thing you should know is, I don't plan on stop drawing during this break. I will go out, take a break, and then come back home with renewed batteries, ready to do some more work on pending drawings, and on all the projects I'm involved into. I don't know if I'll go faster or slower, but I will keep progressing. My current upload queue has a total of 8 drawings, all ready for upload during the first weeks of May, so what I'm working on right now are pictures you might not see until the second half of the month of May (unless you're the client of any of these pictures, in which case you will see them instantly).

Now, for some more focused updates.

I Will Never Leave You.


I am sorry to say this to fans of I Will Never Leave You but due to problems at home and this one commission that has taken so much of my time, the next page will (hopefully) be coming out early in May instead of this month. I'm sorry this happened again, but Rated says it's fine and I promise that once I get the free time for it I will make this my priority.

Commission Queue.


Still accessible for everyone who wants to see it. I've managed to reduce my current total from 25 pictures to 12. That's not a bad progress, though I might have to take more work once May rolls in.

ASK MOVIE SLATE.


There will be no update on Thursday 28th of April. There are, however, three drawings queued up for upload on the blog, with a few more being drawn as you read this. I am hoping that May rolls in and I have a queue with six drawings or more on it. It might be a fool's hope, but something tells me I'll be able to get them going.

STREAMING.


Might come sooner than you think. I'm slowly mustering the energy to go back on the saddle and stream again.

Thank you so much for reading this, and have a good one everybody!



STREAMING CHANEL.

Picarto Title Card. Sleepy Ty by jamescorck
Picarto Title Card. Sleepy Ty
Commission for :icontyandagaart:

Here is Ty's new offline title card for his Picarto channel. I've had this one waiting on my list for a little while, then I seized it with both hands and finished it in a whim (like it happens with all my sketches). I've never had a chance to draw a deer before, and now that I've done so I want to draw me some more. This won't be the last time I draw Ty's character either. He's proven to be way too fluffy for me to ignore it!

I also discovered that Ty has a weakness for hammocks. I won't lie, hammocks are pretty awesome. Now I want to have one too, darn it. I hope you all enjoy the lying deer guy and his amazing fluffiness. He's so fluffy, good grief so fluffy!

Please, let me know what you think of this drawing in the comments. I appreciate and every single one I receive.

Thank you!

Ask Movie Slate - Animal House by jamescorck
Ask Movie Slate - Animal House
Ask Movie Slate - Episode 184

I was coming back home from being at Hearths Warming Con this year, and since I had nowhere to sleep and plenty of time to kill, I decided to do several little doodles. One of those was the original idea for this update, which came to me after a weekend filled with too much Twilight Sparkle's Secret Shipfic Folder. Yes, this one (just like the update for The Boondocks Saints) was directly inspired by that card game, because I really wanted to draw Spike as a grown up and establish him like so within the canon of Ask Movie Slate. Aging and re-designing characters can be a lot of fun when you have a good base, plus I was getting kind of tired of seeing Spike as a baby dragon. So yes, grown up Spike is staying. He looks like that, doesn't he?

"Animal House" is one of those movies that I watched because someone else recommended it to me, and I still can't figure out how to feel about it. I won't deny that it is a perfect time capsule of the era, a time when the stocky attitude of the 70's was dying off thanks to the release of Star Wars. But not even the movie itself knows what it wants to be. At times it's really clever, charming, and outrageously funny. But other times it can be stupid, meaningless, and just plain insulting. The characters are memorable, but only because of the flaws that define them, and there really are no heroes here. The main characters, the members of the Delta Tau Chi fraternity, are the heroes of the story just because everyone else is portrayed as histrionic and cartoony. It's easy to root for your heroes when your villains are flat and one dimensional, right? That's just my complain, of course. I'm a character-heavy type of person, and if the characters don't grab me you better have a good story to compensate. This movie doesn't have such thing. I don't hate it, I don't love it, I think it's just fine.

The Toga scene might be the very first thing everyone talks about when they talk about Animal House, so drawing it for this update was out of the question for me. I spent a total of one minute (which in thinking process time it's like one hour) wondering if I should do the scene where the horse suffers a heart attack because of the gun firing a blank. That wouldn't have been as funny as Shinny and Spike dressed in togas, though. Also, figuring out the color palette for this one was a fun exercise. Shinny and Spike had to be shaded in a warm, fun light, while Movie Slate had to be the stick in the mud covered in cold colors. She's trying to figure out what to do with these two, and which one should she slap first.


I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Thank you!

Fanart - MLP. Double Birthday by jamescorck
Fanart - MLP. Double Birthday
Commission for NightFlame1989.

I drew this one for :iconeva-janova: and her hubby. They both celebrated their birthdays together, which is why this piece is called "Double Birthday". I finished this one way too close to its deadline, and NightFlame was graciously patient with me and my constant delays, but I did it! It came out way more pink and way more red than I first envisioned, but I think the overall result says "LOVE" quite loudly.

This one was printed and given to them both as a present on April 5th. Here's hoping that they liked it, and if they did, then that's something I can be proud of.

As a little bit of trivia, the original piece I sent them had a slight mistake. Her hooves were the same color as his body, making it look like she was wearing socks. I managed to fix it before the picture went live, but not before it was printed! So somewhere around there is a version of this picture with the wrong colors, somewhere, floating in the ether.

Please, let me know what you think of it in the comments. I appreciate and every single one I receive.

Thank you!

Fanart - MLP. Guardians of Nature (collab) by jamescorck
Fanart - MLP. Guardians of Nature (collab)
Collaboration with :iconwoonasart:

This is the second collaboration I've worked on this month, and I have to say I am discovering things about my art I had no idea about. It turns out I'm really comfortable working with a sketch drawn by someone else, and developing a background without a clear sketch of it. I've never had the chance to work with a sketch that I hadn't drawn in the first place, so finding out I can actually do so feels really good.

Also, shading with warm colors is such a neat experience. I hope I managed to capture the feel of a summer afternoon this picture deserved. I do have to say though, I don't regret the times when I was shading colors with just black and white. Had I not done that I wouldn't have been able to improve upon my craft. It's how I started drawing, and if you're ashamed of your beginnings then you don't deserve to be where you are, don't you think?

Hey Movie Slate, I heard I could drop by here on DA. So I figured I'd pop round and see how you're doing after taking a ride on Midnight Light's back! Oh and he told me to give you this. *Hands over a copy of Men Who Stare At Goats* Enjoy.
