Look at the way people make sleds for routers to create the scoops in chair seats. They require a bit of setup, but can give you a very repeatable smoothly sloping depression without the freehand grinder work.

I’ve used one more or less like this one at this link https://www.woodmagazine.com/woodworking-how-to/shop-tips/seat-sculpting-jig-saves-time-and-keisters

You can use any bit with a rounded end with it. It takes a few hours to make the jig and it more or less only does only one shape with some limited range of increase/decreased size as you raise or lower the bit. But it makes scooping a regular depression easy and repeatable.
