How to get a symmetrical sketch in perspective? Use the “Middle line”

Symmetrical sketch drawing the middle line

For a “symmetrical sketch”: The middle line is essential to any designer.

Mother nature made most of the things on earth and outer space symmetrical.
Humans naturally create objects mostly symmetrical as well.

You may want to draw a spaceship, a razor, a lamp, a car, a fashion model…anything symmetrical, use the Middle line. It’s mostly applicable for the front view, and it becomes even more interesting from a perspective view.

See an example on this short video I extracted from the 7Days roll of Paper challenge.
