About This Class

Are you just starting out with sketching cars in Photoshop? Or are you an automotive design or industrial design student or professional? This course will help you improve your sketching skills which is of great value when building a professional portfolio. I'll walk you through each step of the process from initial line work to the final render and give you an insight to how it's done in the design industry.

The course is divided into 4 lectures + BONUSES.

In lecture 1 we go over two different techniques on how to get the proportions of the car down. The reason for this is because without correct proportions from the start, it might end up looking like a toy car.

In lecture 2 we'll make the car come alive by rendering and sculpting the design. I'll walk you through the basic tools and brushes used for this.

Lecture 3 is about adding the details such as parting lines for the door, import wheels from a picture and refine the reflections and highlights.

In the final lecture 4 we'll add color to the design and I'll show you the difference between using a couple of layer modes to get the result that you want. You will also learn a trick to make the final image really stand out and feel crisp and sharp.

Two additional lectures on how to sketch a car from an upper side POV. This is important to learn and used often, especially for automotive design students.

Ever since I was a little boy I had a thing for automotive designs (don't we all?), and Marouane's class reminded me of that time and made me want to come back to it! His designs have that "wow" factor I'm striving for, and the fact of him sharing his process and techniques with us makes me want more!

Drawing is such a stress relief!

Design Professional & Online Teacher


I'm an industrial designer and online teacher from Sweden currently living in the sunshine state of Florida. I've always had a great passion for design and especially design sketching. I began my professional design journey as a freelancer in 2008. 

You could say I'm a wannabe surfer and backpacker (34 countries and counting) who loves design and helping others succeed. I have worked as an industrial designer, concept artist, illustrator and online teacher for over 10 years. Makes me feel old saying that...

In 2010 I moved to Italy to study a master degree in automotive design in collaboration with the design team from Audi and Lamborghini. I graduated a year later.

Since then I've been lucky to have my designs featured online and in numerous magazines such as Auto Motor & Sport, Auto Express, Car Magazine, Top Speed and Car Scoop.

I'm currently living in South Florida with my beautiful wife Lindsey. Here I help the largest privately owned medical device developer in the world solve their design problems and create better products while also creating online products and classes.

Online marketing is another great passion of mine, specifically video marketing, email marketing and social media. This is what I want to share with you in my classes.

I look forward to being a part of helping you get to where you want to be,

Thank you, now let's get to work!
