Hi, Marouane here,

In this course, 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 course 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 :)


Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for anyone interested in learning how to sketch with markers. We are sketching a car in this course, but the techniques used can be applied to other objects and products as well.
  • This is not for you who want to learn digital sketching

Starting with a light pencil is always a good idea. This gives us room to adjust as we go if we make any mistakes along the way.

Once we are happy with our proportions, we can start to design our car and make it unique.

You don't really need many markers to create a rendering. You can use one marker to create different shades by using marker layering.

Marker layering works similar to painting a car in real life. The more layers of paint, the deeper the color and reflections.

Marker layering - the secret to deep reflections

Adding contrast is important because it helps "plant" the car to the ground and give visual feedback on the design.

How to add contrast and make your sketches "pop"

Wheels can be a bit tricky and time consuming. Here's one way I like to sketch wheels that saves me time.

Designing wheels the quick and easy way

Depending on if we want the car to be glossy or satin, we adjust our marker work accordingly. For strong highlights, I use white ink.

How to add burn point and glossiness to the car

Even though we are sketching this car in side view, we still have to consider the perspective.

Sharpen up those lines before calling it complete! It makes a big difference.

Hi, I'm Marouane. I'm here to give you the tools and information you need to reach your goals in your professional career. I value your time and I'm honored that you chose to know more about my courses here on Udemy.

What I can guarantee you in all my courses is that you'll get actionable advice and learn techniques that you can implement immediately and see results. I cut the nonsense out of my lectures and focus on what matters. This is something I know I appreciate when taking a course and I think you do too.

Who are you and what can you do for me, Marouane?

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 and illustrator for over 8 years and online marketer for a couple of years now. The techniques I'm sharing with you have allowed me to live my vision I had as a kid, which was to work as a designer and move from a small suburb outside of Stockholm, Sweden to the sunny beaches of South Florida.

My professional design journey began in 2008 designing consumer electronics for companies in Hong Kong and the U.S.

In 2010 I moved to Italy to study a master degree in automotive design in collaboration with the design team from Audi and Lamborghini and I graduated a year later. Since then my designs have been featured online and in numerous magazines such as Auto Motor & Sport, Auto Express, Car Magazine, Top Speed and Car Scoop.

What I do

I currently work with the largest privately owned medical device developer in the world to help them solve their design problems and create better products. I'm also the founder and creator of TheSketchMonkey and ProVideoSlides where we create products for video marketers.

Throughout the years I've had the opportunity to work with companies in Switzerland, Italy, USA and Sweden, designing products ranging from medical equipment and food packaging machines to concept art and automotive design.

Why should I join your courses?

If you are serious about improving your skills and you want someone to guide you in the right direction, my courses are for you. One thing to remember though, you need to be prepared to put in the work. I will be there to help you as much as I can in the discussion board of each course, but you have to have the mindset and desire to want to learn. That's all you need. You'll always be up to date since I will add lectures to the courses on a regular basis.
