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.

  Cory and his work professionally and I look at his artwork in particular that I learned something and this video shows all you need to know that you have mastered the technique template, mixing colors and creating textures and many other things. I had to watch the video multiple times will not understand English well :-( I would welcome to each video English subtitles at me full complement of this video Thanks Coastairbrush TV for their work so that I could improve myself

Wicked Grit: Cory Saint Clair "is a man with True Grit"
  Wow, this is by far, next to my Daniel Power DVDs in learning about airbrushing, the best DVD I have in learning stenciling techniques and realism. I'm trying it now, and even though I don't have it mastered yet, I will thanks to Cory Saint Clair! Great video!

Great technique amazing talent.
  I have downloaded this video and the quality is EXCELLENT. Everything from camera angles to clarity and color reproduction is the best I could expect. Cory introduces not only remarkable technique in this video but also a strategy plan when working throughout a project, this is very very useful to have in mind. Then he takes all that into practice explains an efficient way to work free stencils cut out to real size painting as well as apply lighting effects and how are these converted to correct tones step by step. To my 35 year experience in painting I see that Cory has an amazing talent that had finaly put it on reality through the airbrush. I hope there will be more videos of Cory demonstrating various other themes on how to to other textures , or Automotive and or micro Airbrushing, that theme on the Black ops GT was IMO unbelievable,amazing was also the work on the Lambo. What I would like to see in every video or in a free, is technical opinion or approach of Cory on different Illustration boards and or surfaces concerning pigment, airbrush , pressure, transfer methods ect. By best thumbs up for you Cory and people on Costairbrush.
