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.

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

Looking to master your design sketching skills or maybe you want to get an introduction to basic sketching techniques? Are you struggling to learn industrial design sketching from books and other mediums that leaves you to figure it all out yourself? Whether you're just starting out, or if you are an industrial design student or professional and want to crush it with your sketching, this course is for you.

The course will help you improve your sketching skills using simple techniques that anyone can learn. Use these techniques to build a professional portfolio, apply to internships at design studios or land a position as an industrial designer. I'll walk you through each step of the process from initial line work to the final render and give you an insight to how it's done in the design industry.

I created this course to give you an interactive experience and guide you through your learning process. We have a Facebook group of friendly designers, myself included, who will answer any questions you might have and give you feedback so that you can get your sketching to the next level as fast as possible.

Useful course for ID sketching and rendering.

I personally enjoyed this course. The instructor knows his stuff and he is able to explain himself. His renders and sketches are immaculate, check out his work samples on his website, youtube channel, and Instagram. He also has some inspirational literature to get you motivated and focused towards your dreams, which are included in the course.

For those who are just starting out, the course has the basics from line quality to perfecting ellipses - he explains a useful pre-drawing exercise that he uses and that I have adopted. He also does a little tutorial on digital sketching (wacom tablets and software).

The ‘cloud system’ sketching concept is very interesting – a fast way to sketch in perspective. I would love to see more real-time sketching examples with different types of products (mouse, water bottle, watch, etc.) If you are a beginner, this process might not be suitable for you, since you need a good understanding of perspectives to be able to draw with this technique.

The instructor did a great job at explaining the rendering process. How to add value and shade, understanding light direction and its importance, adding highlights, etc. I specifically appreciate that he incorporated some examples of projects from rough sketches to full renders. Although the videos are sped up, he goes over them with a voice over commentary. This is just my preference, but I personally would want to see sketching videos in real time, there is an extra level of value that gets lost when sketching videos are sped up.

In addition, he has some insightful bonus materials that he has added.

Really helpful course

I haven't finished this course but I can say that it helps me a lot to improve my sketching. I've been taking the lectures slowly because after finishing a lecture, I have been practising again again. I am now more confident and I do sketching whenever I found a free time for myself. The best thing of this course is to be updating by Marouane and I think that the designer really wants to help by adding some bonuses. Also this course encourages me. I'd appreciate that. But, I have to say that the duration of the lecturers are a little bit short, I mean I prefer the designer shows more samples about the relevant lecture.

This course is simply incredible!

As well as being of immense use to product designers, all digital artists/designer will find it inspiring. It is so thorough, that it seems to be at least two courses rolled into one. It is in the later part that Marouane's simple line work seems almost magically transformed into whatever product he wants by shading and erasing in photoshop. Marouane Bembli is very talented.

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.

Photoshop Car Design

The course is for anyone that wants to achieve that clean and professional look in their automotive design. I enjoyed taking the course and learning new techniques which helped a lot in the overall process of designing a side view car. Marouane is an amazing designer and a great teacher. The results are nothing less than AMAZING!!!

Just what you need

This lesson teaches you the fundamentals needed to render a side view of a car, but you can also take the skills onto other designs. Not ideal for complete newbies to photoshop, must know the ground work to get started, having said this the tools used are very simple. Any designers must how to guide for amazing results!

Design Sketching - A Car Side View

Assuming you have a handle on the basics of Photoshop and the treatment of light and shading, this short and easy to follow course is great for the aspiring automotive designer and a fun exercise for product design / industrial design students or professionals needing a refresher. Marouane's approach is simple and clean with some neat tricks and techniques.
