Sketching values

Exemples of the kind of sketches I do when not painting in colour. Theses are not meant to be finished pieces nor perfect drawings. These are meant to be studies of Black and white values from the simplest to more "complex" forms. Decreasing values from a photographic image to only 2, maybe 3 values is not an easy task and is a very good exercice for the eye. It also is essential to understand values if you wanna improve into getting more realistic renderings in your pantings (Google random and more personnal pictures used here, yes that's me riding on the moon below :))

Amazing what you can come up with using Sketchup. I've been practicing some tutorials recently and this exercice below is the result from one of them.
