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 - Episode 227 - Psycho
Ask Movie Slate - Episode 227 - Psycho

Today's Movie Slate is brought to you thanks to :iconssjcharon:

I really like the way this one came out, and I don't say that often. It was fun to have Movie Slate, in the shower, with her cousin asking about the knife sharpener, and even funnier to have her screaming her head off. I think she needs to put a lock on that bathroom door, ponies keep walking in and bothering her all the time. I also really like how the steam came out, and the translucent nature of the shower curtain, also Movie's face and Cotton Bucket's deadpan expression. I think it came out rather humorous and I'm quite happy with the end result.

Also, yes, the shower stream is hitting Movie Slate right in the crotch. She's not screaming just because of the knife.

"Psycho". Oh boy. Here we go. This movie is one of those sacred cows of the media, where if you say anything remotely negative about it you get chewed out and people grab their torches and pitchforks to chase you through the forest. To say I've had experiences with this movie that made me reticent to talk about it would be to put it lightly. So, what do I think of it? I think it's very, very good. I don't love it. I don't think it's Hitchcock's best. It's not my personal favourite of mine (it's a tie between "The Birds" and "North by Northwest"). But I appreciate and admire the film for everything it does. I love those camera angles, and the way everything feels so claustrophobic and controlled but at the same time manic and insane. It is like being trapped inside the head of Norman Bates, and in that aspect the movie works really well. But right after the murder in the shower, to me the movie loses all of its steam and instead of pacing itself towards the conclusion instead it stumbles towards it.

Hitchcock was good at the slow boil ("Vertigo", "Rear Window", "Frenzy"), where the entire movie is a build up for an event that can't be stopped because it's already too late. Here he shortened said build up and, while the shower scene is appropriately shocking, the second twist (the reveal of Mrs. Bates' corpse) isn't nearly as shocking or satisfying as the first one. Hitchcock played against his own cliché and it paid off! Everyone brings this movie up when it comes to horror classics. I don't think it's a corner stone of the genre though.

Anything I could say about "Psycho" comes more from a purely personal place than anything else. While it played with the way movies worked back then, and thus broke new narrative ground, its achievements no longer feel as impressive. This could be said of every other movie directed by Hitchcock, but being this one his most popular one I can't help but notice the wrinkles better.

And now, my thoughts on the 1998 remake directed by Gus van Sant! It's shit.

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Ask Movie Slate - Episode 226 - Mimic
Ask Movie Slate - Episode 226 - Mimic

Today's Movie Slate is brought to you thanks to :iconssjcharon:

The development of this drawing was a rather accidental one. As I was setting up the sketch, I had to be rushed to the ER due to a predicament that had just flared up (to put it in blunt terms, bleeding was involved). It took me about three days to finish this drawing, which considering I wasn't feeling the best at the moment I'd say it was fairly quick. This idea in question references to those godawful costumes they sell on bootleg websites, you know the ones.

It's easy to forget about "Mimic" being the first foray that Guillermo del Toro had in the world of Hollywood. He had been making independent movies until that point, so it wasn't his first time behind a camera (not by a long shot) but whenever I watch "Mimic" all I remember is the way that Guillermo described it in an interview for a Spanish TV show about movies. He said they took his screenplay and basically fucked it in the ass, changed a bunch of things and made it friendlier for the mainstream audience. I remember him saying that the only part of the movie he liked script-wise was the part where he kills the two children, which makes me wonder how many other characters were meant to die towards the end of the film. In the end he admits that, while the movie isn't his own in terms of writing, everything else is the way he wanted it to be. The colour palette, the shot composition, the way everything is framed and set up, and while the movie doesn't feel like it belongs to him, he still feels it's his movie.

I think the way he described this movie is very close to how I feel about it, truth be told. I don't remember the names of any of the characters, but I remember their personalities and their stories. I really liked the shoe cleaner played by Giancarlo Giannini, or the no-nonsense security guard played by Charles S. Dutton. Hell, even F. Murray Abraham delivers a damn good performance in this. Del Toro knew very well to fill his movie with character actors in case the character writing faltered, which it does almost from minute one. It's a strong movie in the visual, visceral and acting aspects, but it very much lacks on everything else, which is a shame because it makes the movie feel like it's only halfway done.

If you want to complete your viewing of Guillermo del Toro's filmography you can definitely give this one a watch, but don't expect the strength he displays in his most recent work. Studio interference and an uncooperative screenplay bring down what could be a much better movie trying to come out.

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Ask Movie Slate - Episode 228 - Dredd
Ask Movie Slate - Episode 228 - Dredd and Judge Dredd

Today's Movie Slate is brought to you thanks to :iconfernindt:

Believe it or not, I don't have anything against featuring the Princesses of MLP in my ask blog. I just never have the chance to do so, nor do I come up with ideas that could justify featuring them in these updates. I also have the concern that featuring Cadence, Celestia, Luna, Twilight or even Flurry Heart, would lead to people thinking I'm either abusing their popularity for a boost or to think I'm implying that them and Movie Slate are friends. I've always thought that the Princesses, being who they are, have the right to go anywhere at anytime they want. So having them in the booth doesn't imply friendship of any kind.

Specially when they appear dressed up like this.

So! Let's go one by one. "Judge Dredd" is such a product of its time it's impossible for me not to love it as a guilty pleasure. The spandex of the costumes; the flashy and crappy CGI; the over-the-top villain with the even more over-the-top hero; the thumping soundtrack; and a complete disregard for the source material. This movie is not a Judge Dredd movie. It may look like it (sometimes) but it has none of the spirit from the comics. It might as well be titled "Joe Muscles in the Post-Apocalypse". For years I've scoffed at having Stallone showing his face instead of keeping it hidden behind the helmet, but it's small details like that which show how little film-makers cared for adapting comic books in the 90's. It's like having the Doom guy stop in the middle of a level to quote an entire chapter of "War and Peace", it doesn't add anything and takes away a big aspect of the original character.

And speaking of Doom guy, let's talk about "Dredd", the Karl Urban version. You know, one of the absolute best action movies ever made in the past twenty years. People talk about a renaissance of horror movies, but between this one, "Mad Max: Fury Road" and both "Raid" movies I'd say action movies aren't too far behind. "Dredd" isn't just a great action movie, it's also a great Movie movie. You know, a Movie that knows how to movie. Almost everything is told with visuals or a clever combination of visuals and narration. The characters are well built and the actors portraying them are fantastic. Everyone and myself love Karl Urban as Dredd from the very first moment he puts on that helmet, but Lena Heady's Momma isn't far behind, and Olive Thirlby's Anderson is both interesting, sympathetic and quite a badass. This movie reminded me of the '70s, in particular of how John Carpenter was making movies during the 70's. I'd consider this movie an spiritual successor to "Assault on Precinct 13", with a cop (or cops) surrounded by enemies, with limited resources, trying their best to stay alive. Nobody is invincible in this movie and I loved the dynamic between Dredd and Anderson.

Alright, so you can tell I really liked the movie. Is there anything I didn't like? Truth be told, I can't think of anything. I would mention the length, but it's only like an hour and a half long which is just perfect. It's straight forward and simple. It has style, good world building, good characters, and leaves a good after taste.

"Dredd" is a great, solid action movie that has enough strengths to stand on its own and offers such a good spectacle that even those who aren't familiar with the comics should be able to enjoy it. If you've been yearning for a good, fun, self-contained action movie that packs enough punch to stop a train, then check it out!

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Ask Movie Slate - Episode 225 - Troll Hunter
Ask Movie Slate - Episode 225 - Troll Hunter

Today's Movie Slate is brought to you thanks to :iconssjcharon: featuring the wonderful AcePony created by Dragenda.

The original concept for this picture almost never happened. This was the first idea for it, but I was reticent about it. I wasn't sure if the idea would've worked. Imagine poor Movie Slate getting slapped left and right like she's...well, a cartoon character from Looney Tunes. Kind of like what The Hulk did to Loki in the first Avengers (good ol' innocent times). In the end, I accepted this as a rather funny concept. I mean, Movie Slate has gone through so much after all these years I think there was no reason to have some slapstick fun with her. She can take it, she's made of marshmallows.

"Troll Hunter" is one of those fresh surprises that comes every now and then. It's not weird to admit that the best part of the movie is what gives it its name, that being the Troll Hunter himself. I love Hans, he's just the absolute best character in the whole movie. He has this RV full of the most mystical, weird and disgusting artefacts to deal with Trolls, but he also has to deal with the paperwork, fill up forms, report to his superiors, and he's so sick entire of his job not being recognized he lets a team of stupid teenagers follow him with a camera to film a documentary about his job. The moment he shows up, fully clodded in armour, and goes "I really hate my job" that's the moment I clicked with the character. That's when the movie went from being alright to being downright great, and it stayed there for the rest of its run! Which I'm afraid leads me to the negatives.

The first act is really slow, and while it does introduce the characters it does nothing to make me care for them (with the exception of Hans). I never wanted the documentary crew to survive, in fact when the police shows up towards the end I actually cheered up. The special effects are really good at the start, but the moment the movie goes into night vision the CGI takes a dive. Also the premise is a bit flimsy as the giant creatures feel too big to have the government bother to try and cover it up, but I guess that falls into the outlandish territory the movie lives into, so I guess it's to be expected that it gets ridiculous towards the end.

Overall, "Troll Hunter" is a wonderfully original movie that takes advantage of its genre to present a rather realistic character in a somewhat grounded fantasy setting. It feels a bit like a "one man show" and as such it has the failings of the genre, although none of these weigh it down. If you're looking for something different on found footage movies, give this one a go.

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Ask Movie Slate - Episode 217 - Captain Underpants
Ask Movie Slate - Episode 217 - Captain Underpants, The First Epic Movie

Today's Movie Slate is brought to you thanks to :iconglitch-sketch: featuring :iconchaoscroc:

This one has been quite a while in the making. You may notice the jump between episode numbers, and you're going to see a few more like this. It's the disadvantage of drawing them out of order. I was also quite intimidated by this picture in particular, especially because I knew next to nothing about Captain Underpants. I didn't even saw the movie when I got the idea brought to me by Glitch. You could say this was a time I sat down and watched a movie for work only. In the end I think the concept came out rather alright, with Movie's hallucination melding with her projection booth, as she now believes herself to be Captain Underpants. Also, no, she won't be dressed like that in every update from now on. Only for any other future Captain Underpants movie.

So, "Captain Underpants, The First Epic Movie". I missed my chanced to watch it in the movies, and had to wait until it was released on streaming for me to give it a go. I kept putting it back over and over again, as the concept really didn't call to me. It seemed way too silly, and didn't seem to have anything to sell me on the concept. It felt like a comic that went past by me and I had no connection to, so watching it and then talking about it would've been making a disservice to the source material. But then I watched my friend's Mad--Munchkin 's review of the movie, and the moment she mentioned the toilet humour I was sold. I like lowbrow comedy, and toilet humour is perhaps my absolute favourite. I really like that kind of comedy (it's one of the reasons why I'm still a fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd). So I gave it a go sold on that premise, and I have to say this was a surprise. The characters were surprisingly likeable, especially Mr. Krupp (the guy who gets turned into Captain Underpants). From what I've been told the original comic portrays him as meaner, but in this movie he's just a broken down lonely man who just wants to find someone to love to and who will love him back. He's still an asshole but you know where he comes from and what he's dealing with. And the two kids George and Harold are also very likeable and relateable. Even the main antagonist has some levels of sympathy towards him.

It's not a perfect movie though. I'd say the action is a bit lacklustre (although you can argue that's not the point of the movie), not all of the jokes land and there is a bit of a halt in the pacing towards the third act that kind of ruins the (up to this point) spotless rhythm. But none of these are issues that hamper the movie from being a wild ride that has a lot of heart and soul under it's delightful crust of well played comedy and visual gags.

"Captain Underpants, The First Epic Movie" achieves a rare feat in creating a story that can bring those unfamiliar with the original comic into a wild ride full of imagination, good comedy, and surprisingly good characters. While not perfect the flaws don't prevent it from being a great experience from beginning to end. Give it a watch if you have the chance!

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!
