I’m participating in the Zen-Untangled project and thought I’d share the tile I did for week one which was a partial week. I haven’t started on week two yet but I’m looking forward to it.
Week one’s tangles are Florz, Eye-Wa, IX, and Avreal. We were to use a “z” string for our tile this week.
I tried to do something different from what I would normally do and not what I’d seen others do. I started with Avreal down the long diagonal. Then I went with IX along the bottom and filled Florz in behind all that I’d already drawn. I finished it off with a very small Eye-Wa in the last section.
Here’s my tile before shading.
I didn’t remember to take a picture after I finished tangling but before shading though. So here is my tile after I shaded it.
Once again, I think it looks better a bit smaller.
Here’s the picture I took. Of course, it was after dark when I decided to take the picture, so I took it inside.
I appreciate you stopping by. I hope I’ve inspired you.
Until next time,
Well, I think I’ve given up on Inktober. Considering there’s only one day left and I haven’t done any drawing in a week, so I basically did half of Inktober.
I decided to see what the prompt was at Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic. That prompt was a very simple one: draw some connected loops.
I went with ‘Nzepple, Shattuck, and Florz for fill tangles.
I didn’t actually get a picture in natural light but I did take a picture.
I went for some simple shading.
Here it is a bit smaller, which doesn’t amplify the shading I didn’t get smoothed out so well.
Here is the picture I took of it.
I like how it turned out. It was an easy tile to draw and stress free. I didn’t feel any pressure doing it. Of course all the tangles I used are easy ones or ones I’ve used before, so that may be a part of the lightness and ease of tangling this one.
I appreciate the simple prompts!
Thanks for stopping by. What are the tangles that are stress free for you?
Until next time,
This week I decided to do the prompt from Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic #TTKICPrompt082619 which was to round out the square created by the corner dots and then draw a ‘z’ to section it off.
Of the couple dozen tangles given to select from, I chose Knightsbridge, Cadent, Florz, and Striping (top to bottom on the tile). Unfortunately I made a few lines that were opportunities for creativity. And I was so focused on covering up those bits that I jumped right in with some shading and forgot to take a pre-shaded picture. Oh well.
So here is the scanned finished piece.
My light that I use for my tangling was not charged and I was doing a lot of this with limited light. Also my microns were nearly all dried up . . . I guess I’m going to need to get another set.
Here is a picture I took of the tile in natural light. It’s been overcast most of the day, so that there is any sun at all is a plus.
Which is your favorite tangle?
