After watching some mandala artists on YouTube, I’ve been experimenting with the symmetry options in Procreate. This was my first attempt with the rotational symmetry turned on. Still figuring it all out, but I like this one. It reminds me of those paper lantern lights.
This one kind of reminds me of a circus. Not sure why, but it does. In any case, I like it. 😀
More experimentation – changing up the symmetry options in Procreate as I draw. I think I should have added some detail to the inner circle, but other than that, I am happy with this one.
I like this one. Lots of elements to color in and repeated elements. Still playing around with various silhouettes as I finish each one.
Still experimenting around with things – this time with line weights. Trying to figure out how to balance the thinner lines with heavier ones to balance out the different areas.
More circles in this one – I wanted it to be more traditional looking than some of the others. Still experimenting, but this one definitely begs to be colored in.
The bolder lines work well with this one. I like the separation they create. Definitely more cohesive than last week’s, which is a good thing. I like the silhouette of this one too.
Trying out some different elements with this one. It doesn’t feel cohesive, but there are pieces I like. It’s all about experimenting, right? 😛
Really loving the last layer of this one. Kind of reminds me of the art deco style. I also experimented with using some pieces of white in the design – drawing white over black, though it’s probably hard to tell that just by looking.
On to the next!
