This week also proved to be particularly difficult because Gloom also can refer to someone’s state, as well as a Pokemon.  Gloom is also not a commonly fan drawn piece, so hopefully we’ll satisfy your art cravings with three pieces here today.

The above is a great drawing by Ruisu-gablias74, called DesDraw Nr44 Gloom, as part of a series to draw all the Pokemon.  The great use of Oddish and Gloom really makes this one stand out and makes me smile

The next piece is by MelissaR1, a fun sketch art in digital form

Odds by MelissaR1

This one is called odds.  It certainly is the odd ones of the bunch, but I think it lacks a Bellossom to really make it complete.  Seeing it this way really makes me understand the entire family here.
Lastly, we end with something tangible, because making 3D figures, such as this crochet below is so difficult!

Gloom by LiebeTacos

This Gloom is just so cute in a fluffy form, and the tops are very representative.  Unfortunately, LiebeTacos is on vacation from her Etsy, so you cannot buy any of her goods!  But definitely check out some of her work on deviantArt that she’s done in the past!
