I’m still amazed that Betweed and I are friends. I actually enjoy tangling it.
This past week was another catch-up week for the Zen-Untangled project 2020. I took it as a breather instead. On catch-up weeks seven strings are provided to keep us full of tangling ideas. I was busy trying to finish up a book that I’d been reading for a while, The Robot of Dawn by Isaac Asimov, and playing Super Mario Odyssey again from the beginning. So, I didn’t take any time to tangle this week until yesterday when I needed to do it for this post.
I chose one of the easiest strings and then some very simple tangles from the last four weeks to put in those sections. Meer is a favorite, so that was a simple choice for one of the sections. As I said, I’m liking Betweed since we became friends last year, and so I decided to add it in a section.
The trouble I have with Zander is the highlight spots on it. I never seem to get them in the right places but it’s an easy enough tangle, so it won the last section.
Here is the scan and natural light picture of my tile before shading.
Here is the same tile after shading in both a scan and a picture in natural light.
Well, that’s all for me today. Thanks for stopping by. If you have any tips for Zander and it’s sparkle, please let me know.
Until next time, God bless,
This week has not been the best week!!! And that is putting it mildly. So this is going to be pretty short.
The tangles I used this week are Betweed, Meer, Jetties, Tripoli (just one triangle), Keeko, and Scena. I used one big Jetties and then a few small ones in the center of the one Tripoli.
First will be the unshaded scan and then the picture taken in natural, albeit overcast light.
Yes, my huge jetties is not round because I filled the oddly shaped section with one instead of many jetties.
Here’s the final tile, shaded (first the scan and then the natural light).
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a better week than me.
Until next time, God bless,
I can’t believe I’m already thinking about October! In a lot of ways! We have a conference at our church at the beginning of the month, for which I volunteer to help. Of course I started thinking about that a lot a few weeks ago but I hadn’t really contemplated Inktober and yet I have started seeing Inktober prompts. I’m looking forward to it now too.
Well, for this week’s tile I am once again following the prompt from Today’s Tangle: Keeping it Classic #TTKICPrompt090919. My string didn’t look exactly like the one Sandy drew but it is close. Here is my string.
I looked over the pool of tangles to choose from and wasn’t real thrilled with them. I noticed that several sections were triangular and would thus lend themselves to Betweed. So that’s where I started. In the scan above I marked the sections as I filled them. I started with the red ones. That four-sided section didn’t end up getting filled in completely, so after I did the cyan sections, I filled in that bit that was left over and the other green section. Then I added Pepper into the sections marked with yellow.
Here is what my tile looked like before shading.
I’ve always liked Pepper but I’ve just never used it much. Prior to this year Betweed and I were not very good friends but now, I enjoy tangling it. I generally only use it if I find a triangular section already available. I think that was my problem with Betweed before–creating triangular shapes to fill.
Here’s the tile in natural lighting before shading.
Here is the scanned finished tile.
And here it is in natural, but dim light.
So what do you think? Do you use Betweed or Pepper? (Pepper is the peppermint looking one.) Do you plan to participate in Inktober?
Thanks for stopping by,
PS. I now have a youtube channel and a patreon. I hope you’ll check them out.
