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.

A good bench mark.
  I was worried about trying to reproduce the skull as closely as I could. When Cory said that he got the image online, I expected tohave to settle for something close. But, there it was, first page when I Googled "BLACK AND WHITE SKULL." I found my self also wishing for a diagram of exactly how Cory cut the stencil,so it didn't fall apart. Paying close attention though out the video will show you the way, but not as well as being led by the hand. Yes, I saw the first 5 minute video, but it wasn't very explicit. It's definitely worth the money. I'm sure just a couple of practice runs will produce a decent work to show off to friends. I haven't done a skull painting yet, so the most helpful thing Ive been able to take away so far was the difference between the Wicked Blacks and Whites, how to reduce them, and what the different types were for.

Great way of breaking the learning curve.
  This was the first video I bought from coast tv. Man was it great. I have been buying from them for many years. They bring top notch artists to you. Cory does one hell of a render on this skull breaking every step down for a novice and if you have been doing it for a long time you will learn tricks you never knew they had. it was a great buy. So stop reading reviews and buy the video!!! Enjoy

Focus with Corey
  What can you say about watching a master of the art teach you . He explains soft focus and edges and clear focus and sharp edges. This is a outstanding video that can help push anyone to the next level. Hat off to Corey for giving us yet another great teaching video
