I quite like the way this mandala turned out. The repetition of the shapes turned out better than I thought it would.
I’ve been working on some larger mandalas, with an eye towards turning them into a coloring book. Interestingly, as I’ve worked on them, I struggle with them more than the mandalas I was drawing just for my own enjoyment.
So maybe my own enjoyment of the process has an effect on the final product. Something to keep in mind as I go forward.
I’ve been playing around in Procreate and creating these mandalas. The symmetry and lines of mandalas are appealing to me – so much so that I’m hoping to create (and finish!) a project with them.
I love to color while I’m watching TV or feeling stressed, and intricate images like mandalas are a favorite of mine. I’ve also been experimenting with adding zentangle tile patterns into some of the mandalas.
I did some internet searching last week and found all kinds of uses for mandalas – wall stencils, wall decals, car/phone/laptop stickers, coloring pages, and more. Who knew?
I’ve had a challenging couple of weeks with some health concerns. Drawing mandalas has been therapeutic for me. Maybe I’ll gather them together as I continue and make a coloring book of mandalas.
This one has some zentangle elements in it. The symmetry of the mandalas is appealing to me – it’s almost like drawing with my old friend, Spirograph.
Since I got the Procreate app for my iPad, I’ve discovered one of the things I like to do is draw mandalas. I found some templates that aid in drawing them and I’ve experimented with several of them.
I also discovered that the Procreate app has a function that lets you draw symmetrically, which helps immensely when I am creating a mandala.
So I decided that I would try to share some of them here. Hopefully that will give me the push to keep creating and learning, plus I might be able to put some of them up for sale on my (so far theoretical) Etsy store.
This one has some mistakes, but I thought that made it more authentic. That’s what I’m telling myself, anyway. 😛
