Description

Hi, I'm Marouane, industrial designer originally from Stockholm, Sweden, now living and working in South Florida. Welcome to my class on perspective sketching!


What's the course about? 
Many of us have seen the conventional way of sketching in perspective. Whether it's 2-point or 3 point perspective, they ALL follow certain rules. In this class, I'm going to show you a completely different way of perspective sketching that I think you will like. We are also going to cover how to unblock a sketchers block and boost your creativity.

I like to get to the point as quickly as possible and when it comes to sketching. I like to jump right into sketching the product or object instead of setting up an entire grid system of perspective guidelines. 

I want to show you a technique I've been using for years now. Something I call "Cloud sketching". It's about turning your sketches and designs into "clouds" on the paper, capture the proportions and perspective with the help of ellipses and simple geometries. No grid system necessary. 


Once this is done, we can start to add the details and really design our "cloud" into whatever we intended it to be. Sounds strange? It will all make sense inside the course, I promise.


Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone interested in drawing or sketching. It suits beginners who are just starting out with drawing as well as experienced designers and artists. I think there's something in this class for everyone, if you keep an open mind.
Thank you for taking interest in my course, I hope to see you inside.


Your instructor,
Marouane

You might have heard me say it before but I'm not a fan of the "schoolbook" way of sketching in perspective. Now, we're going to jump into MY way of perspective sketching which I call "cloud sketching".
