Over at Joey's Place, we are up to the letter K in our alphabet wanderings. Kozy!
And SuzyMosh has us playing with new to us U patterns, plus the tangles of Jane Monk, who has lots of fun patterns to play with.
So I'll begin with my piece for the Suzy challenge.
|for this one I used a micron 1 pen|
I started with Daniel's Undu, a newly published pattern at tanglepatterns.com. There are also two patterns by Jane Monk: strata and connector, which you can see in the upper right and also some strata nestled in the oxbow curve of my undu near the bottom center. Then, up & down from tanglepatterns. I played with that one quite a bit, and enjoyed how it seems to alternate between lozenge, diamond, circle...except where I put it in that curved border on the right, and did some little embellishments in the junctions.
Shading and some glints here and there. It turned out okay. Undu is pretty cool with the shading, and relaxing to draw, and I want to play with up & down a lot more.
Over at Joey's, we're playing with Kozy.
I didn't know where to start, not wanting to take up a full page in a sketchbook. But as I riffled through my papers and art supplies, brown struck me as a good color for this sort of organic, shell shaped tangle.

There was a brown card stock tile, and I chose my sepia micron 01 for the Kozy. Shading with dark brown prismacolor pencil, and highlights with rose pink prisma. There are some spirals and I outlined the part that got heart shaped, in brown sparkle gel pen.
It's very glittery in real life. I pinned it to my cubicle wall.
