About This Class

Hi, Marouane here,

I'm really excited about this class. In this class, you will learn the simple techniques on how to sketch a car using analog tools.

We are going to focus on a side view of a sports car and you will look over my shoulder as we go from initial line work with a pencil to get the proportions and design right. 

Then we will apply markers. Now, I want to keep this class simple so that anyone can get awesome results from it even if you haven't touched a marker before. 

We are using cool grey markers for this class and we are only going to use 3-4 different shades. 

As a final step, we will add highlights and "burn points" using a white ink pen to really make the glossy surface stand out. 

This class if for you who like to learn some cool tricks on how to use markers. These techniques can be applied to any type of design sketches such as industrial design, fashion design and more. 

Let's have some fun! 

See you inside :)
