About This Class

Hi, I'm Marouane and welcome to my class.

Inside, you will learn tips and tricks used to render design ideas in Photoshop. Use these techniques to build up your portfolio, create a new design project or maybe you just want to learn digital product design.

This class walks you through the process from early ideation doodles and quick sketches in Sketchbook Pro all the way to adding highlights and shading in Photoshop. 

You will learn:

  • How to practice ellipses and how to sketch them in perspective
  • The techniques to quickly get ideas down and render them in Photoshop
  • How to add highlights
  • How to add shadows
  • The basic tools used for shading
  • How to render a car from line work
  • To block out shapes and silhouettes
  • Why a light source is super important
  • How to add weight to your design
  • ...and a lot more!

By the end of this course, you will have a concept of a flashlight that you sketched in Photoshop.

If you have questions or something isn't clear, use the class discussion board. I'm here for you and I reply to everyone.

Also download my brush set here if you like to use it in the class.

Thank you for your time, now let's get sketching!
