This is pretty helpful to me, since I focus a lot on the final product and have a hard time slowing down to enjoy the process.
I've taken photos of my first zentangle step by step. I used two pens: a Sharpie fineliner and a Sakura Pigma 1.
This page is a pretty important one to me since it is the inside cover of my new journal ie: it had to be PERFECT.
Is it? You be the judge!
The lighting is a bit wonky in these photos, despite my attempts at brightening them. I hope you'll get the general idea...
|I started out by drawing a big S and then drawing stripes through it to break up the page a little.|
|Coming up with different patterns for each section was the hardest part of this...|
|Little by little it started to take form. I obviously tend toward organic shapes!|
|Since this is the inside cover of my new journal, I wanted to include a little blurb for inspiration.|
|Really taking shape now! |
You can still see the general shape of the S although I made a point to not outline it directly.
|Et Voila! The finished product! My favourite pattern is the brick. |
I also like the face on the left, and the tree, and the rose.. and the... just kidding.
I'm really happy with how this turned out!
