This intermediate level course series will introduce you to the digital tools and techniques used by professional automotive designers to achieve stunning sketches and renderings.
We’ll start by learning the basics of light and shadow, then we delve into basic reflectivity, and how reflective objects are essentially a mirror of the world around them. Finally, we’ll introduce color, and discuss how digital rendering techniques can be used to communicate Brand DNA and automotive design language.
Included in the series are 38 video tutorials and rigorous sketching assignments. You'll have the opportunity to receive direct, one-on-one feedback from me at several key points in the course, to review your work and discuss opportunities for future learning.
