Design is a big part of my life. Ever since I was a kid, I've always been fascinated by design sketching and especially marker sketching. I mean, who doesn't love to draw and sketch stuff right?
Hi, my name is Marouane, I’m an industrial designer and founder of TheSketchMonkey, a community for designers. Sketching is something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember and it has taken me on a journey all over the world - from my native country of Sweden to designing cars in Italy all the way to my current location, South Florida.
In this 5 hour video course, you will learn the marker sketching techniques that I’ve learned over the years as a designer.
Inside Marker Madness you will learn how to use markers to visualize your ideas on paper. From early pencil outlines to complete design renderings. We'll talk about what to think about when sketching with markers, what tools you should use to really complement the markers, the different sketching and stroke techniques for a smooth final result, how to blend markers and what to think about when adding highlights.
You’ll also learn a detailed step by step walk through of a car rendering where you can literally watch over my shoulder as we go from early outlines to a full blown color render and much much more!
This course is for you who want to improve your analog sketching skills - maybe you are an industrial designer just like me or a complete beginner who wants to dive into the world of marker sketching.
If you have any questions or feedback what so ever about the course or a specific lecture, please make sure you write it in the discussions forum. All feedback is more than welcome, since that's what I'm going to use to expand this course over time.

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!
