Ruutz, Crux, and Hi-Cs

FB□1 ~ LifeofJoy.meWell, I managed to do it again. :) I was able to combine the Diva Challenge, Square One: Purely Zentangle focus, and the Weekly Zentangle Tangle Video focus all in one tile.

The focus over on Square One: Purely Zentangle is Eni Oken’s new tangle Ruutz. I found this one a bit difficult to shade. It was pretty easy to draw but shading it proved to be a challenge for me. In the end, I guess it turned out okay for a first attempt. {Well, to be truthful, I started it once and had to turn the tile over because I didn’t like some of my lines.} This is also the tangle focus for the Shading Zentangle facebook group, so I’m hoping they’ll give me some pointers on how to better that aspect.

iamthedivacztThe Diva Challenge this week is a “Use My Tangle (UMT)” challenge and the chosen tangle is Crux by Henrike Bratz. I really enjoyed doing this one and there are so many ways to shade it that it can look drastically different every time you draw it. If you haven’t tried this tangle before, I highly recommend it. You do have to focus when you are drawing it but if you follow the steps, it turns out pretty nice.

I was also able to include the focus of the Weekly Zentangle Tangle Video (WZTV), Hi-Cs. This was another fun tangle to draw but the shading really stumped me. Here again, I hope someone will be able to give me some pointers. If you haven’t tried this tangle and you are looking for an easy one, give this one a shot.

Without further adieu, here is my tile. Well, the line work before the shading is first.
