Well, I grabbed my first sketchbook, the one I was "on" when I started practicing zentangle. Honestly, my "style" hasn't changed much...though my lines are finer and I know a lot more about weighting lines and shading and such. So I couldn't find a tile that I wanted to duplicate but I did find a pattern.
My very first zentangle video was a tutorial on B'Tweed, by Maria (with some Rick in the background)...and I gave it a try.
Hahahahahaaa! wow. But look, I made a border for my "tile" (which back in those days was just squares drawn in my sketchbook...no actual tiles or anything)
And here is B'tweed, with shading, done soon after, or maybe the same day:
Believe me, this was my best attempt back about two years ago.
And so, I am up to strings 49, 50, 51, and 52 in my "project"....and string 51 looks like this
which seems about right, to make a new, improved version of that 2014 Btweed
Which is what I did:
So, maybe I have improved some... though I do prefer Btweed in a pointed pattern...triangles and radiating webs and such.Still, going back and seeing what I attempted, my first try. Pretty encouraging. Like before and after pics when you are getting fit.
Now...should I do a post on Mooka?
