Studying values

I want to get better at drawing, and one area I know I need to get better at is values. I tend to stay away from the very dark and the very bright. It’s a lot easier to concentrate on getting the values right when working in black and white, and I try not to worry about getting the proportions, shapes or details right either. Just values! It’s pretty fun to do.

Pokemon Fusion

Had a lot of fun drawing “pokemon” today, using this cool site http://pokemon.alexonsager.net/
Drowusaur was the first I drew, and looks weird. Should have worked more on the colors there. I like how rock like Ontle looks, and the combination of golden tentacles and a big gem on Stargela. My favorine will have to be Tentath, who looks like a evil blue ninja cat. Which would you rather see become a real pokemon?
