What Will I Learn From This Course?

Sketching cars is a huge passion of mine and if you were to look though one of my sketchbooks, the majority of the doodles would be of cars. I'm sure you can relate to this! But I struggled for years to get it right. Cars and vehicles are complex shapes and it can be tricky to get the proportions right. In this course, we'll tackle all the common issues with sketching cars and I walk you through the process step by step.

Photoshop Car Design is Divided Into 9 Lectures:

In lecture 1 we go over two different techniques on how to get the proportions of the car down. The reason for this is because without correct proportions from the start, it might end up looking like a toy car.

In lecture 2 we'll make the car come alive by rendering and sculpting the design. I'll walk you through the basic tools and brushes used for this.

Lecture 3 is about adding the details such as parting lines for the door, import wheels from a picture and refine the reflections and highlights.

In the final lecture 4 we'll add color to the design and I'll show you the difference between using a couple of layer modes to get the result that you want. You will also learn a trick to make the final image really stand out and feel crisp and sharp.

As a bonus lecture you'll get

1, The brush set that I use for Photoshop

2, The original .psd file so you can open it up on your computer and see the layer structure and what goes in every layer.

3, Two additional lectures on how to sketch a car from an upper side POV. This is important to learn and used often, especially for automotive design students.

Bonus lecture 2 Downloadable this .pdf with a step by step walk through on the techniques used to sketch a car in side view using markers and pens.

Bonus lecture 3 Having problems sketching wheels? Not anymore! Check out this bonus video lecture on how to sketch wheels and get them right in perspective. This will help your sketch tremendously and will make the vehicle look planted on the ground.

Here is some of what you will learn in Photoshop Car Design:

  • Learn two different techniques on getting the proportions right the first time
  • Use only standard Photoshop brushes to sculpt & shade the design as it's done in the industry
