Flux+Nymph in Color Pencils
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.
Full Page Zendoodle – Small Mandalas
A full page zendoodle from my art journal. For this one I drew a number of small mandalas and tangled around them. I used a variety of pens: Staedtler Triplus Fineliner and all the pens from this set of 4 Faber-Castel PITT Artist Pens.
Small Doodle 2
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.
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.
Blue Zendoodle Box
A great way to recycle old plastic containers. I took this ice-cream box, painted over the labels with acrylic paints and then doodled with a paint marker. Now I have a nice new box for my fine-liner pens.
Small doodle 1 Video
A small improvised doodle filmed with my phone. As usual I used a Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen size S.
Inktober Shades of Grey Mandala
It’s October and this year I’m taking part in Inktober. I couldn’t do it last year because I was very busy at work, but this time around I’ll try to post at least a couple of pictures a week starting with this mandala done with the Faber-Castell Shades of Grey set of 6 brush pens.
Floral Zendoodle Video
An impromptu video I made by just setting up the camera and doodling without any preparation. For all my previous videos I planned the design in advance, but this turned out to be fun and in the future I’ll continue to make more of these videos. The pens I used: Faber-Castell PITT artist pen S and Uni Pin Fine Line 0.1.
Free Coloring Page 2 – Floral Zentangle
Decided to make this intricate floral zentangle into a coloring page for everyone who likes to color pictures with numerous details. Of course, I tried it myself first and it turned out to be a really relaxing and fun experience. As you can see the result looks good. You can download the free coloring page in pdf format here. Have fun!
