26 Oct Sketch Faster: 4 Simple Steps to Speed Up Sketching When Drawing Symmetrical Objects
Whenever i sketch something symmetrical, such as front view of a car or top view, i tend to sketch only half of it. This is to save some time and speed up the process, and concentrate more on the design process of the car. In this article i would like to share a simple technique that i use when drawing symmetrical objects.
Draw half of a car from front view, rear view or top view. Finish the drawing with lots of details and shades.
Next step is to find a bright place, take a picture of it, or use a scanner and bring the sketch into Photoshop.
Once brought into Photoshop, adjust the colours, increase the contrast and duplicate the sketch layer.
Free transform one of the layers and flip horizontally or vertically and adjust the image as required.
Once you are happy with the positioning of the top layer and the overall look of your sketch, then save it as JPEG or whichever format as you wish. Now you have a symmetrical sketch of your object which is ready for print or colouring in Photoshop.
