Throughout these lessons, we will learn how to refine a rough automotive concept design sketch into a polished illustration in Photoshop. Using basic tools in Photoshop, elements from photographs and textures and logos, we will create a compelling design that shows off awareness of form and acknowledges function. By the end of this tutorial you will be able to effectively introduce light, shadow, and reflections that will bring flat ideas to life. Software required: Photoshop CS6.
Introduction and Project Overview Hi everyone, my name's Adam Fairless. I'm Director of Product Development at WowWee Toys and Robotics. I've worked on many products that can be found on the retail shelf, as well as concepts on the screen and vehicles on the road. I'm currently overseeing design efforts of WowWee's product line for 2016 and 17. My skill set covers concept design, illustration, CAD, prototyping and manufacturing. In this course we're going to use Photoshop to illustrate concept design for a racing motorbike. The purpose of this course is to explore techniques for quickly and efficiently populating a vehicle concept design. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to refine and render an automotive concept design, touching up a sketch with basic Photoshop tools, add shape and form with shadows and highlights, use existing textures and elements to populate a design, and create a base version of a design and then add graphics to turn it into a racing thoroughbred. By the end of this training you will have learned how to take a rough concept and turn it into a presentation piece worthy of client review, or a place in your portfolio.
