Naaki Tangle Pattern – Inktober Tangles 2021, Day 2

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.

Lunar Flux – Day 1 of Inktober 2021

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.

Grey Zentangle Design

A zentangle design done with my favorite set of pens – the Faber-Castell PITT Artist Manga Pens, Shades of Gray set. The variety of hues provides opportunities for achieving interesting effects and can also be used for shading instead of pencils. If you, like me, occasionally have a hard time choosing the right colors for a drawing, you can always pick a couple of grey pens.

Art Journal full page tangle

A full page tangle from my art journal that took a while to finish, but it turned out nice and was fun to do. It was a good piece for Inktober since I spent several days drawing it and practicing the repetitive triangular shapes and straight lines. It is very relaxing to do repetitive shapes and as usual I used Faber-Castell pens of various tip sizes.
