Diva's Weekly Challenge #245



I finally set a Facebook page for my Zentangle works! If you use Facebook, you're welcome to visit and follow it. There are always Chinese and English explanations. 

Last week I was busy for my "Hellish Practicing of Renaissance Zendala." So I am very happy this week's challenge is “back to basics”: Hollibaugh. 

Yes, of course, this is my first pattern just like everyone, so I would like to share with you guys my first tile (and thirtieth tile.) How basic it was!



Even though I use Hollibaugh in many ways, if I want to tangle Hollibaugh as a main subject, it’s not as easy as I thought. Sometimes basic can be the most difficult. Drawing Hollibaugh itself is not difficult, however, drawing a unique Hollibaugh really hurt my self-confidence. In this moment, I felt I don’t have enough creativity in art. I could only do what I already done before. Fortunately, I am gradually dealing with this truth.

Before I drew this tile, I didn’t see anyone else's tile. Because I worry the more works I see, the less ideas I will have. Now, I finished it, and I visited every one of yours. Thank you for sharing and I really learned a lot from your wonderful works.


本週的新消息是把禪繞添加到捲氏生活集,不過我想這個沒人看的中文部分應該沒人在意這個消息XD

這週挑戰是回到基本:立體公路。在經過上週嘔心瀝血的茶色禪陀螺練習之後,有這樣一個基本圖樣的挑戰真是舒緩。立體公路基本上是所有人第一堂禪繞時要上到的元素,因為這其中隱含了禪繞畫面中一個相當重要的概念:穿越。

於是我想起自己的第一張紙磚,當是畫的還很彆扭啊!

不過畫基本的圖樣最殘酷的就是很容易看到自己的極限,自己是不是個有創作力的人,可以從單板圖樣的變化性看得一清二楚,很顯然老娘不是,不過也只好認了。

在畫這張作品前我真是死都不看其他人的作品,深怕看了之後就會受到影響,畫完之後開始看,感覺世界還很大(遠目)。

  1. I can see a difference in the level of skill between the two tiles but I notice even the first one is imaginative in the way you have used the patterns. I think it shows a lot of talent - in fact, they both do.

  4. Wow you are learning very quickly. I agree, tiles are only the same cost as someone else's coffee nevertheless I can't help saving my official tiles for special occasions, they do feel good to draw on when I eventually use them,

  6. I never look either because I might then be swayed away from what I really wanted to do. I like how you make your Hollibaugh be part of the surrounding tangles. Very nice!

  7. these are all so lovely. I like especially the little curly ends of your hollibaugh on the last tile. You have a whimsical style that I really like.

  8. They are all very beautiful. I've taken the border of the first one as an inspiration for a new tangle you'll find at my blog. Thank you from Berlin.
