Hi, I'm Marouane, welcome to my course on Concept Design.
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.
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 and brush set used in the course!
Thank you for taking interest in my course, I hope to see you inside.
Who this course is for:
- If you are interested in exploring a different way of creative thinking and approach design sketching without the rules and limitations that come with industrial design, then this class is for you.
- This course is for you who want to develop your concept art skills and learn how to think creatively.
Hi, I'm Marouane. I'm here to help you get started with design sketching or to improve your existing sketching skills.
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 run my YouTube channel and teach students around the world the art of design sketching and car design.
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 want to get started with design sketching or improve your skills and you want someone to guide you in the right direction, my courses are for you. 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.
See you inside!
