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.
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.
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
A small square zentangle (also called tile) that is easy and quick to do. Perfect for beginners. You can use any fineliner pen, but for this particular drawing I used a Staedtler triplus fineliner and Centropen 0.1 for the thinner lines.
I love painting stones and especially making mandala stones. The thing is, where I live it’s very hard to find stones with even remotely circular shapes, so I have to make do with what I find. However, you don’t need a perfectly circular shaped stone in order to paint a mandala. You just need a stone big and flat enough so that you can draw a decent sized circle on. The stone in the picture above was a great find, but it still wasn’t the perfect shape for a mandala. So here is what I did…
A small flower design done with two different pen sizes – an 0.8 fineliner that I unfortunately lost and for the finer lines I used a Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Black 0.3mm.
A small improvised doodle filmed with my phone. As usual I used a Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen size S.
