Who are you Marouane and why should I invest in this course?

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) that loves design and helping others succeed. I have worked as an industrial designer, concept artist and illustrator for over 8 years. 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.

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. 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.

So what are you waiting for? Join me and thousands of students today and start sketching your own beautiful designs in no time.

What Will I Learn From This Course?

This is a beginners course and the first course in a series of courses to come that will help you understand product design sketching in Photoshop better.

Design Sketching Essentials 2 is Divided Into 10 Lectures 

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.

If you are willing to put in the time and you're serious about really taking a shortcut to improving your design sketching skills, this course is for you.

If you feel something is missing or wasn't covered enough, just let me know in TheSketchMonkey Facebook group. I will update the course on a regular basis and add new lectures based on your feedback and needs.

Should you complete the course and feel this wasn't for you, no worries, simply ask for a refund within 30 days and you'll get your money back no questions asked. This course has helped a lot of designers already, but if you're not getting results, I don't want your money.

So what are you waiting for? Invest in yourself, join hundreds of students today and start sketching your own beautiful designs in no time.

I've been lucky to have my designs featured in the following online website & printed magazines (selected)
