A good use for coal

I decided to break out the charcoals last night. It's been a loooong time, and I probably would have been better off using some photo reference but it's fun to go primitive now & then.

I decided to manipulate the original sketch in Photoshop to see if I could make it a little more compelling....As I played with the symmetry, the drawing took a back seat to the design it was making and the negative space became more interesting to me.
