In this video, Cory Saint Clair brings a blank canvas to life and creates a monochromatic pirate themed map. With the use of water based illustration paints you will learn how to use the canvas as not only...well a canvas, but as a tool in your painting to bring out its underlying color and textures for the purpose of weathering, mid tones and highlights. Learn how to create age and character on your next work of art.

Some Highlights Include:
Creating antique backgrounds
Tracing projected image
Creating a monochromatic look
Creating depth with multi shadowing
Using vinyl and freehand templates
Highlights & shadows
Rendering hard & soft edges
Creating "washes"
Important uses of electric eraser

Bio: Armed with only an airbrush, Cory Saint Clair is out to rewrite the book on automotive artwork. Cory Saint Clair flunked ninth grade art. Why? For not following the rules. Fifteen years later, not much has changed. The 34-year-old still isnt playing by the book, but ironically, today thats part of what makes him one of the premier airbrush artists in the industry. I would rather punch myself in the face than paint more flames and skulls, jokes Saint Clair, whos been trying to move away from what he feels is clichéd, instead implementing a fine-art approach to his work. Im tired of doing the evil stuff; I want to show that theres a whole other world to this, and that there are real artists in the airbrush game, he says. Aside from painting angels on a Lamborghini Gallardo, he is currently finishing a depiction of the Sistine Chapel on the headliner of his Dodge Magnum. For Saint Clair, it all started with a copy of Airbrush Action and an Iwata airbrush he received for his 12th birthday. Everything I learned was all self-taught, because I couldnt afford to go to an art school, he explains. I learned from magazines. Sometimes we didnt have enough money to get them, but my mom would always find a way to buy Airbrush Action, because she knew that was my only avenue. From the very beginning, Saint Clair was out to earn, and he quickly found a way to flip his passion for profit.  Today Saint Clair works on some of the top builds in the nation, including much of Asantis fleet. A job by the man himself could cost you upwards of $150,000, but as Cory says, If you have money to spend on a Lamborghini, you can afford to paint it to set it apart. Its just paint. Not a bad finish for the kid who failed art.

  I love this video, very well done. I just wish he would have talked more about the ratio of paints mixed and air pressure for us newbies. Overall a very interesting piece of work.

Incredible watch!!
  I simply love this video. I couldn't take my eyes off of the screen for a second, I was so mesmerized by his eye for detail. I thought my eye was sharp, but this proves me wrong. I can't wait to apply this video into my next airbrush piece!!

  Having already watched Black & White Portrait Techniques by Cory, i could,nt wait to get more, and now having watched Monochromatic Pirate, was,nt dissapointed, as i said about the first one, Cory has a very relaxed and easy going way, about showing you his techniques, very clear very skillful, could do with 10 minutes talk about, canvas, paints etc. Thanks once again, regards tony

  Another fantastic video. I'm actually creating my own version of this painting for my grandson in a 2'x4' version gesso on hardboard. watching Cory has raised the level of my skills immensely in a very short time. I'll be posting a pic of mine in the forums. Jimi P.S. I've bought every Cory St. Clair video they offer at coast and they're all worth the money.
