DFRSOB – Negative-Space Drawing of a Sports Photograph

As mentioned in an earlier post, focus on negative spaces in photos can help a lot with foreshortened drawings. The purpose of this exercise is to practice just that with a sports photo.

I chose the GOAT himself, Michael Jordan. This was a pretty fun one to draw and I liked seeing people guess who it was when I showed them. The negative space focus becomes more natural the more you use it. I found it helpful here to define the photo without needing any other details.
