Coreyartus's Profile Picture
Coreyartus

Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
I am a Costume Designer from San Diego. I teach at a local university, and design and build costumes for them. I also try to work on my own projects, such as my Fairy Tale series of women's vests through my own wearable art business, Relished Artistry, or my personal map-making and cartography endeavors I do for fun. These include everything from wallpapers for one's desktop to crepe-paper display heads.

I have a vast collection of poses and rendering examples in my favorites collection that I am gathering as inspiration for my various costume designs and my personal artistic development practicing costume rendering. I sometimes favorite individual examples so I can link back to the artist's page. While most digital renderings are far too detailed and specific to be practical to actually illustrate in the costume design process (way too much time to execute), I've found that many works provide wonderful examples of stylistic ingenuity as well as conquering specific illustrative quandaries that I find inspirational for my own endeavors.

I also have a small sample of my own work on multiple shows and projects. More can be found on my portfolio sight linked below.

In the end, I feel it's not the renderings that are my particular artistic expression, but the costume that results from its use as a tool in the process. Costume Design is about what appears on stage with the collaboration of other designers, actors and technicians, not on the piece of paper. But creating a rendering that is both stylistically interesting and clear goes a LONG way to engendering faith, trust, and understanding in the collaborative theatre-making process. Learning how to draw and looking at the work of others is important.

So that's why I'm here. Thanks for letting me favorite your stuff!!! :)

Wrecks Before and After
This side-by-side set of renderings is for an original comic production of Treasure Island at Grossmont College in El Cajon, California.  Part of their Summer Theatre Conservancy, this production gender-bends many of the characters and adjusts the story line accordingly. 

This character is a pirate named Wrecks.  Get it?  "Wrecks/Rex?"  Yar yar yar!

The rendering on the left is the original line drawing done in pencil, inked with Micron pens, then scanned into Photoshop where the textures and colors were applied to result in the image on the right.  Actual photographs of fabric were divided into selections, then each layer of texture was inserted and trimmed to fit under its specific area of the rendering above it.  Careful use of the Dodge and Burn tools helped create dimension.

Squints Before and After
This side-by-side set of renderings is for an original comic production of Treasure Island at Grossmont College in El Cajon, California.  Part of their Summer Theatre Conservancy, this production gender-bends many of the characters and adjusts the story line accordingly. 

This character is a pirate named Squints, who has one eye (with an inter-changeable eye patch) and fights with a telescope.  Yep, it's that kind of slapstick comedy.

The rendering on the left is the original line drawing done in pencil, inked with Micron pens, then scanned into Photoshop where the textures and colors were applied to result in the image on the right.  Actual photographs of fabric were divided into selections, then each layer of texture was inserted and trimmed to fit under its specific area of the rendering above it.  Careful use of the Dodge and Burn tools helped create dimension.

This particular rendering required careful manipulation of the striped textile used for Squint's sweater. The original image was too small, so I had to make it 4 times as large by making the Image Canvas larger and duplicating the layers to lay them side by side. I was able to move it into the rendering file as a new layer, then use the Warp Transformation tool to make it look like it curved around Squint's body.  The sleeves had to be selected separately with new layers of the same striped fabric for each, using Puppet Warp to heavily distort the image and make it look like it was curling around the arms.  This was necessary because the stripes on the sleeves would look odd if the entire layer had the same direction of stripes, resulting in something that looked fake and manipulated.  While the final image isn't perfect, at least it's closer to reality.

Port and Starboard
This side-by-side set of renderings is for an original comic production of Treasure Island at Grossmont College in El Cajon, California.  Part of their Summer Theatre Conservancy, this production gender-bends many of the characters and adjusts the story line accordingly. 

This character is a pirate named Port, who has a pet parrot named Starboard.  Throughout the musical, the parrot delivers one-liners, but toward the end it is revealed that he is actually a magician's parrot from Cambridge, and his accent changes to a proper British dialect.  The rendering on the left is the original line drawing done in pencil, inked with Micron pens, then scanned into Photoshop where the textures and colors were applied to result in the image on the right.  Actual photographs of fabric were divided into selections, then each layer of texture was inserted and trimmed to fit under its specific area of the rendering above it.  Careful use of the Dodge and Burn tools helped create dimension.

Madge and Mable
This side-by-side set of renderings is for an original comic production of Treasure Island at Grossmont College in El Cajon, California.  Part of their Summer Theatre Conservancy, this production gender-bends many of the characters and adjusts the story line accordingly. 

These characters are siblings, Madge and Mable.  I tried to make one a reflection of the other by manipulating the same textures with different colors. One original sketch sufficed for both renderings, and I was able to flip it to produce both quickly and easily.  Actual photographs of fabric were divided into selections, then each layer of texture was inserted and trimmed to fit under its specific area of the rendering above it.  Careful use of the Dodge and Burn tools helped create dimension.
