Another zentangle inspired mandala. It’s always amazing to me that even after all this time, even when it feels like I’m drawing the same design elements over and over, the finished mandalas all end up looking different. It’s almost like magic. 😛
I had a lot of fun drawing this one. It has a lot of different elements, but I like the flow of it. I’m still learning and experimenting with various types of zentangles and doodles for filling elements, but I think the mandalas I draw just because are usually my favorites. 😀
Another one I ended up really digging. The flow from inner to outer layers is good. It’s simple, but intricate enough to keep your eye interested. I really want to try coloring this one. 😀
This was another experiment, but I’m really digging this one. It’s simple, but I like all the repeats and echoes in it. The outer ring is a bit too heavy, I’ll keep that in mind for future mandalas.
I tried drawing this one in different layers in Procreate with different symmetries. I think it worked okay. The lines in the inner layer could be thicker, but that’s all right. It somehow reminds me of an onion. Just me?
This one is simpler than the ones I’ve been drawing lately. However, the simplicity is what is appealing, I think. Cleaner lines, less detail, but still looks fun to color. 😛
60 seems like it should be some kind of milestone. I started drawing these mandalas on a whim – who knew it would stick around this long? There are definitely days (and mandalas) that go better than others, but I can see progress when I look at where I started. Still room for improvement, but tons better than when I began.
I spent quite a bit of time yesterday drawing and painting. The last week has been spent trying to get everything done for school opening and I just hadn’t had the energy to do much of anything else. However, after a few hours of creating, I feel like my mojo is back and my focus is better. I think I’ve been more productive in an hour this morning than I have been all weekend. 😀
Ever have one of those days when nothing goes right? I had one of those the day I drew this. It turned out okay, so maybe that whole ‘zen’ idea works. Still frustrated after drawing it, but feeling better.
