An original way to add perspective

The author is an extremely talented artist, and he also has developed his own way of showing perspective in his drawings... he calls it "cloud perspective" and he says it is faster than the traditional lines and vanishing points we all learned in schools... and it works.

I frankly did not understand the title of this course ("Wacon Sketching Crash Course") and I expected it would show me how to use a tablet for drawing... but it turned out to be a truly excellent tutorial on how to obtain certain using some of the authors original tricks. This will work with Photoshop and also other paint programs that work with layers (and most of them do.)

A Neat Intro to Digital Sketching

Very enjoyable videos and lots of information to demystify designing using Photoshop - I think that to really get the most out of it, it is worth watching the videos a couple of times at least. It'll be great to go deeper into these methods in the other two courses. Essentially, the course is excellent for consolidating the main tenets of sketching whether online or offline (line, light and shade for example). The Photoshop tools used in these tutorials are not advanced, so it's not off-putting for someone who hasn't got a great amount of experience with this software. I found myself skipping back a few seconds to catch a couple of little details but it was okay. I like the quick pace, the explanations and the instructor's enthusiasm for his subject . It is amazing to see how a couple of tricks can achieve so much. Thank you to Marouane for putting it together. See you on the next one. Kirsten

Excellent course!

Since, I am not an artist but loved the way you used air brush to paint and erase the layer contents. One thing that I liked the most is to practice with drawing ovals in all ways. Perhaps, it will help me to learn how to draw easily. Thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge and tips.

Love the cloud concept...

...basic sketching, but I really liked the cloud sketches. Gave me something to think about in terms of approach in free-form design. Great job!

What Do I Need To Get Started?

Before starting the course, you should be familiar with the basics of Photoshop and have it installed on a computer you have access to. You will also need a digital sketching tablet, such as a Wacom tablet, to be able to follow along in the course.
