    Cow Quick question about two-tones and value.

    so as a beginner i'm only working with gray scale. And i was just wondering what specifically is a two-tones drawing and would it be better to work on these first before going into full grayscale.

    So i was wondering what type of drawing this is down here and if trying to get good at this style first is a good idea or not.

    I can't tell if its exactly two tones... probably not but it does look like just one pencil and not much of a difference in value.

    Also the last image in my sketchbook was a somewhat attempt at this too.

    That's a pencil sketch that will go to the inker to be inked and after that to the colorist. Everything that's gray now will be black when the inker is finished, so there really aren't any correct values there.

    i see... so would practicing two toned drawings teach good fundamentals? or should i do full grayscale?
