How to Draw a Sphere (Product Designer Technique)

If I ask 100 people to draw a sphere that shows volume,
I believe most will draw it using shading.

That’s great!
But this is a time-consuming technique.

As a designer,
speed matters to drop our ideas fast,
so you can jump from one to another as fast as possible.

In the video, I show you a super fast technique to draw a sphere,
that takes you only 3 seconds to complete.

I know you can do that “finger in the nose”!
It is a French expression meaning: Doing something easily without our hands.

Instead of shading the sphere, that would take minutes to complete,
I draw the sphere using 1 circle and 2 ellipses only.
