I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with the Amaziograph app – especially since it’s made for making mandalas. It has a lot more options than Procreate in its radial symmetry, but I just can’t get over the shakiness of the lines.
That’s not Amaziograph’s fault – it’s mine, because I have shaky hands. And, unfortunately, the older I get, the worse the tremors get. With Procreate, I can adjust the line smoothing to account for that – with Amaziograph, I can’t.
So for making my mandalas, I’m going to stick with Procreate. I’ll still use Amaziograph now and then, but it won’t be the go-to tool that I thought it would be when I got it.
I do have my eye on another program I discovered the other day, called iOrnament. I haven’t purchased it yet, but I will in the next week or so. After I’ve had a chance to play around in it, I’ll post something here. It looks a lot like Amaziograph, with the options to do tessellations and such.
I saw a coloring book at the grocery store today titled ‘Kaleidoscope Coloring.’ It was a bunch of animals with zentangle doodles for coloring. Guess I’ll add ‘kaleidoscope’ to my Etsy tags, lol.
