This post is close to my heart as this is my first sketch which I can say is my own( no ref included). I have used a simple concept here – Projecting white in black.
In all my previous sketches and sketches henceforth, its always a black on white background and when one deviates from the norm it sure does make heads turn. I had to scout for the right figure to portray in this type of sketch as only an outline can be shown without any details. And for those white spots u c, I did try to cover them up as much as i can but sometimes I accidently encroached into the sketch. Hence just posted it as it is. So much of charcoal for the sketch that I did not really sketch!!
