I have been playing around with different shapes of mandalas and wanted to try one that wasn’t completely circular. I like the snowflake-like shape of this one, but I’m not sure I put enough detail into the outer layers.
I have been searching the interwebs for inspiration for design elements, but I find many of them too similar. So I have also tried incorporating some elements from zentangles to fill in details.
Regardless, the process of drawing the mandalas themselves has been fun for me. So it shall continue!
