UPDATED - Section 5: Texturing with markers - Wood
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.

Short overview where I'll explain the content of each course section.
Before we start to go crazy with markers, let's see what types of markers are available and which ones suits you best.
Depending on if you want a matte or glossy surface, we need to treat the reflections accordingly. In this video, you'll learn how to render a basic matte surface and what to keep in mind.
We are starting this 3/4 rear view of a sports car outlining the design and proportions.
Highlights can make all the difference in a sketch. The more contrast you give the sketch, the more depth it gets. This means you want to use both complete black and total white at some point in the sketch. Highlights are a great way to make use of white.
In this bonus video, I want to show you a quick and easy way to sketch a car in perspective. This can be done both digitally and with manual tools such as pen and paper.
Before jumping into markers, we want to have a clear outline or idea of what it is we need to sketch. In this case, we are sketching, you guessed it, cars! Here's a trick to get the proportions and perspective done right.
