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,
This week I returned to Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic prompt, #TTKICPrompt080519, which was to draw arcs from one corner, skipping the corner dots this week.
I chose Striping, Meer, and Ratoon from the list Sandy provided. Here is my tile before shading. (I forgot to take a picture before any tangling.)
Here is a picture taken outside while the sun was hiding behind a cloud.
Here is the scan after shading. (I think I need to clean my scanner; it appears that there is some specks of dirt on the scanning bed.)
Here it is in the natural (overcast) light.
I shaded several layers and am pleased with how it turned out.
Which row is your favorite? From the inside arc it is Striping, then Meer, and then the final arc is Ratoon (it’s the loopy one). As you can see, the first two tangles are quite simple can truly be drawn by anyone–and actually, most people probably have. Ratoon is a bit more difficult but if you are interested in trying your hand at it, you can see the directions here.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope this encourages you to put pen to paper sometime soon.
Until next time,
