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.

Ask Movie Slate - Snakes on a Plane by jamescorck
Ask Movie Slate - Snakes on a Plane

Ask Movie Slate - Episode 199

Featuring the plane-tastic,
AirPon created by the awesome :iconpandramodo:

This one was fun to work on, and also another case of a picture that took a surprisingly short amount of time to make. From sketch to completed picture, without taking into account the pauses and the time to get references, it took me around 3 hours to make it. I didn't try my new "let's draw this without the lineart" style of drawing, mostly because I have no idea how to adapt that to recreate Movie Slate's mane. We'll see how it goes in the future, maybe I'll be able to develop a faster system to do Movie's hair. Or maybe I'll be able to grow an extra drawing arm and get twice as much work done.

"Snakes on a Plane" is an interesting movie to talk about. When word hit the internet that the movie was going to be edited to a PG-13 rating and that the title was going to be changed, lots of fans of the film went to online forums and complained that Hollywood was, once again, neutering their entertainment for the sake of getting more asses on seats. In a weird move that movie studios don't really do anymore (and for good reason) the filmmakers decided to re-shoot some of the scenes and crank up the rating to a hard R, as well as changing the name back. Looking at this movie again, it's very easy to see the seams between what was originally shot and what was added afterwards. It's a film that still has some charm but that has lost some of its edge with time. Fortunately not everything has aged badly. The acting is actually pretty solid (not just from Samuel L. Jackson but from everyone involved) and their delivery makes some of the very cheap dialogue quite believable. Also the ways they fight the snakes are somewhat creative. There's tasers, glass bottles, fire extinguishers, harpoons, microwaves, and so on. If you're a snake lover I'd say skip this movie because the way they kill some of them are gross and over the top just like in an early Sam Raimi film. Do these aspects make up for everything else? Not really, at least not for me. This movie is one of those pieces of pop culture that, due to being influenced by a select few (those who were furiously posting on them forums back in 2006), will only appeal to a few people, and time hasn't been kind to it in the slightest. I have a big soft spot for it, and I can find some enjoyment in it, but this one is quite the poster child for the "Guilty Pleasure" category.

The original idea for this one had a lot of snakes all over AirPon and her freaking out because, well, one might like snakes a lot but when you're literally covered in them I think anyone would be freaking out too. She has snakes on her arms, her wings, her head, and she'd be shaking and panicking with one of the cutest expressions. I ditched that idea quite early on because it didn't seem to have any focus. The eye would go all over instead of focusing on AirPon's pissed off face. So instead I went with recreating the poster from the movie, but with AirPon instead of a plane. Regardless of my thoughts on the movie the image of two snakes coiled around an airplane is quite memorable and that was one of the best movie posters to come out that year. So I thought, "Well, why the fuck not?" and went with it. Also, I had to give AirPon a murderous expression. She's way more adorable when she's angry.

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Comic Strip. Zootopia - Yes I do by jamescorck
Comic Strip. Zootopia - Yes I do
Commissioned and written by :iconrated-r-ponystar:

A few years ago I used to do a series of comic strips called "Furry with Cream" which was directly inspired by a Spanish comic strip series called "Fan with Cream" (translated from Spanish "Fan con Nata") created by Cels Piñol. I've always wanted to go back to do those strips, and doing this one brought back memories of me working on those strips, and it felt so good.

So if you guys like what you see in this one, I'll be more than happy to do comic strips more frequently. Maybe even bring back "Furry with Cream", now that I have my own James Corck to work with.

Let me know in the comments! I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Brony Scot 2016 - UK PonyCon Promo by jamescorck
Brony Scot 2016 - UK PonyCon Promo

This is the promo poster for UK PonyCon 2016, starring Nessie, Angus, Brit, and a bunch of owls flying all around them.

This poster was a total challenge to work on, but it was also a good learning experience. I had a week to work on it, and managed to complete it in three days (working on it around three to four hours every day). It might seem like a lot of time for a seemingly simple picture, but considering how slow an artist I can be sometimes I'd say that speed was an improvement.

The reason for this improvement is that I skipped the inking stage. I went from sketch to color and then shading without bothering with the inks. Also the background was done entirely with normal layers (no multiply, no sub-exposure, no nothing) for the sake of saving memory and keeping the program from crashing. This turned out to be quite liberating, so I'm going to try this more often since it was so satisfying to work on.

Doing this poster was a bit of a nightmare (I had a couple of sleepless nights thinking I wasn't going to get this one completed in time) but I think the results are well worth the struggle.

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Fanart - MLP. Adventure Pup by jamescorck
Fanart - MLP. Adventure Pup
Commission for :iconprofessionalpuppy:

It's been a while since I've worked on a picture and finished it in a single sitting. This one brought me back to the streaming times of 2013 and 2014, when I could fire up a stream and finish a drawing before the stream was over. Seeing how I managed it with this one, I can't wait to work on the next picture and see how long it takes me to complete it. Have to break that record!

Nothing says adventure as an adorable little pony riding on a cardboard box in the middle of the ocean. I've been friends with :iconprofessionalpuppy: for the longest and I never had the chance to sit down and draw his OC, Cocoa Mocha. I have to admit, he has one of the most adorable OCs I've ever seen. He's like a chocolate pony, I kind of want to take a bite out of him. How's the box staying together with all the water surrounding it and soaking it? Magic. Either that or a wizard did it.

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Birthday Commission. The Music Pone by jamescorck
Birthday Commission. The Music Pone

Commission for :iconbethiebo: done for :iconsketchysounds:'s Birthday, featuring their respective OCs.

The original idea for this picture came directly from :iconbethiebo: in the form of a sketch she had been working on but never managed to turn into a fully colored piece. This made my job a lot easier since it's the best type of visual guide I could've asked for. The idea of turning the room into a music room was mine. It made sense to me that the music playing would happen in the music room. It'd be kind of weird if it happened in the kitchen...unless you're playing "Clue" that is.

I feel particularly happy with the way the background turned out in this one, actually. It took me a while to figure out a way to do those curtains, but looking at them now I think they turned out quite well. This is the first out of several pictures in which I started shading using normal layers instead of multiply layers. For those of you unfamiliar with it, multiply is a style of layer that darkens the colors of the layer underneath it. Doing shading with normal layers is not as fast as it is with multiply layers, but it is more organic. I don't discard using this method in the future.

Happy Birthday :iconsketchysounds:! I hope you like your birthday picture.

I hope you guys enjoy the picture as well!

It all depends on the type of commission.

Sketches are a lot cheaper than fully colored pieces, for example. You can check my commission prices right here Commission Catalogue by jamescorck
