Beginner to Advanced Sketching: Line to Product Design

with Professor, Hakan Gürsu


The class followed in drawing education aims to reveal a new learning method by using the building blocks of general design education (line, form, shape, value, texture, color, space). It is based on the principle of developing 3D thinking and creating the difference between looking and seeing.


This course is for anyone who wants to create realistic 3D sketches and textures. For those who want to create very realistic product sketches, you will learn product design techniques.


By the end of this lesson, you will know the basics of rendering, grading, texture, and perspective. You will have the necessary technical knowledge to express the ideas in your mind in 3D during the process of lines becoming product designs. After completing this class, you will be able to create your very own portfolio full of sketches.

Ranging from boats, toys, and furniture to consumer electronics, his environmentally friendly and visionary projects are introducing unusual solutions to common problems. By drawing a line, he can emphasize not only what is visible, but everything he wants to show, and using his own freehand method, he can bring the paper and pen under the shadow of computer programs to light. It freely reflects the power of the line. Gürsu continues to train design students at METU.
