About This Class

Hi, I'm Marouane, industrial designer originally from Stockholm, Sweden, now living and working in South Florida.

In this course, I want to show you a new way of exploring shapes and concept designs using Photoshop. I'd like you to remove all rules and regulations about design and let your creativity flow free. In this class, we are going to give the blank canvas a purpose without holding anything back.

Who is this course for?

This course is for you who want to develop your concept art skills and learn how to think creatively. 

What will I learn in this course?

You will learn how to tackle a blank canvas. I know this can be intimitading, not knowing where to start. You will learn how to explore shapes using silhouettes, shading & rendering with basic bruses, adding highlights, rendering and visualizing light such as LEDs and glowing surfaces and much more.

You will also learn the 3 tricks I use on most of my sketches as a final touch to make them look crisp like they're popping out of the screen.

Make sure you download the attached .psd file of the spaceship we sketched in this class!

Thank you for taking interest in my course, I hope to see you inside.

Your instructor,

Marouane
