Car Design Sketching: Render a Car in Photoshop
Join over 1400 students in this action packed video course on car design sketching using Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom tablet.
Are you just starting out with sketching cars in Photoshop? Or are you an automotive design or industrial design student or professional? This course will help you improve your sketching skills which is of great value when building a professional portfolio. I’ll walk you through each step of the design sketching process from initial line work to the final render and give you an insight to how it’s done in the design industry.
The course is divided into 4 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.
