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.

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!
