RE: brighten up a drawing
The gradient is symmetrical by design. Actually I didn't pay much attention to this, it's just eyeball-symmetrical. But the gradient editor displays the position of the handles that define the gradient parts, and I just checked that those are used are close to true symmetry.

The gradient is an easy solution but another solution is to make vertical black bands on a white background and use a horizontal-only gaussian blur to obtain a smooth transition. This leads to a very similar thing. Then you can play with the Curves dialog on that layer to adjust the 3D "depth" (this is also true of the gradient method, but to a lesser extent since the gradient is already "spherical"). See attachment.

To get a path to mirror, a workable method is to draw a side, then duplicate the path, and use the Flip tool on the duplicate, then merge the two paths and connect them.
