Hi I'm Marouane, welcome to my course on Photoshop for industrial designers.
This is the second part in the Photoshop for Designers series and in this course we are going to cover how to sketch and render round objects in Photoshop using a digital sketching tablet such as a Wacom.
You will also learn how to take an image of a texture of your choice and wrap it around any surface you like. This is extremely useful if you are rendering products in Photoshop and need to add specific textures to surfaces. It saves a ton of time!
By the end of this course, if you decide to follow along you will have a sphere or a ball rendered in Photoshop with a texture added to it of your choice.
I would love to see your textured ball uploaded in the Q&A section of this course!
This course is for you who are starting out with digital sketching or simply want to learn how you can use a tablet to design objects and products in Photoshop.
Make sure you download Photoshop file that's attached in the first section of this course. This way you can see the layer structure and how the shading is built up by opening up the file on your computer.
Also download my brush set inside the course if you like.
Thank you for your time! I will see you inside the course.
The tools we need for this course does not have to be expensive. In this lecture, I'll walk you through what to think about and what options you have when picking out a digital sketching tablet.
The single most important thing to always keep in mind when rendering is your light source. This will guide you throughout the render.
Now we jump into the fun stuff! Let's start by rendering our ellipsoid and make it pop!
In this lecture we move on to rendering the sphere.
Shading is essentially the use of light and dark shades to visualize form. Here I show you how to use darker shades to do this.
Glossy or matte surfaces are determined by what type of reflections you chose to use in your rendering. Here you'll learn the difference between them.
Adding a shadow doesn't have to be complicated at all. Here's how I do it and it doesn't require using any guidelines, as long as you know where your light source is!
Quiz on the shading section of this course.
This is the trickiest part of this course, but if you get it right, you'll have an awesome looking sphere on which you can add any texture you like!
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.
