Day 2 of Inktober Tangles 2021. So far, so good. Today’s tangle is Naaki by Nadine Roller, CZT. This one is a very versatile pattern, can be transformed in many different ways, but I decided to stick with the basics with just a couple of additional touches. I tried to add some color with pencils but unfortunately the green pencil is barely visible in the video, as you can see bellow, and in the photo of the finished drawing it looks yellow. Oh, well, I guess I’ll use darker colors in the future.
It’s October again and this year (as every other year) I’ve decided to give Inktober a try. I’ve never been able to do more than a couple of days, but hopefully this year I’ll stick to it longer.
So, the tangle pattern for Day 1 is LunarFlux by Debbie New, CZT. This is the first time I’ve drawn this particular pattern and it was a lot of fun. I will definitely use it in the future.
Above you can see a video tutorial of the pattern with my interpretation, of course. Bellow, I’ve done a few different versions of the LunarFlux tangle pattern.
This is my first ever digital drawing and it worked! To be honest I had my doubts, but after I got an Apple Pencil for my birthday last week, I decided to give it a try. Here is the result:
Here are two tiles featuring variations of tangle patterns Flux and Nymph. I colored them with pencils and found out I really enjoy working with pencils. Up until now I usually used pens to color in tangles, but I plan to use pencils much more often in the future.
A video showing how to draw a relatively simple mandala suitable for both beginners and more experienced doodlers. For this one I used Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens F and S from this set of four and an Uni Pin 0.1 pen for the finer lines.
A quick and fun small doodle that turned out quite nicely. I used a Staedtler Triplus Fineliner and for the finer lines and the dots I used a Faber-Castell pen, but any 0.1 fineliner will do just fine.
Forest house free coloring page. This started out as a random doodle that grew into a whimsical house surrounded by greenery. I colored it in with Faber-Castel Pitt Artist Brush Pens, which are great for coloring small intricate details but also get a good coverage for larger spaces.

The Paisley is a great shape to tangle, especially if you can’t think of a design. When I get stuck and have a hard time coming up with ideas, I just draw a paisley shape and tangle inside it. Here is an example. For this video I used a Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen size S from this set of four. For the finer lines I used a Uni Pin fineliner 0.1
