My 1st try with pencil in pxl eyes... While drawing my mind and hands were always going for Ctrl+Z...! Nothing other than pencil used here. No adjustments in brightness /Contrast, colorbalance.. etc.. thats because I don't want this one to be pulled away. But somehow I got away with it and came with this Output.. hope u like..!
