How to Draw a Mandala with Zentangles!

Welcome to the tcgames let's draw series. This video features a Mandala with Zentangles! Enjoy :D!

What is Zentangle?
Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being. Zentangle is enjoyed by a wide range of skills and ages and is used in many fields of interest.

The Mandala Drawing Process:

Art is more than a collection of crafted things; it is more than the process of creating those things. Art is the chance to encounter dimensions of our inner being and to discover deep, rewarding patterns of meaning. To be artistic/creative is a powerful vehicle for personal and collective transformation. By the word transformation, I mean, the process by which one is able to change the quality of life from its current condition to a deeper understanding about oneself.

Using art, especially the Mandala Drawing Process, in Small Group Situations gives access to the emotional side of the individual, the side which is governed by the right brain function. The right brain governs and communicates information about feelings, values, attitudes and beliefs. Art is one tool that can help the individual to express thoughts and feelings more readily since these feelings do not need to be filtered through the left side of the brain.

<p>I respect this art form. It is not as easy as it looks and there and it a great art therapy. This art form can be incorporated to a so called traditional drawing to add dimension. Add color to it and take it up another level. Thanks for this Mandala with Zentangles, it is awesome.</p>
<p>No problem, I'm glad you like it :D!</p>
Nice Mandala! <br>Hmm, very similar to how I sketch... though I tend to intentionally throw in various symbols. I also tend to use various colors for varying effects (and symbolism again)... <br>Lets see I think I have a few examples uploaded....
<p>Those are excellent!</p>
sweet sketches
While appreciate what you are trying to achieve, this is not Zentangle. <br>You can find the actual tangles at Zentangle.com and Tanglepatterns.com. <br>Much success <br>
Great to see you trying to draw tangles, BUT you forgot to mention the creators of the trademark Zentangle: Rick Roberts &amp; Maria Thomas. Also, a lot of your tangles are not in the Zentangle style. If you want more info on Zentangle, visit zentangle dot com.
I'm not sure that using repetitive shapes is a new art form unless you consider cave drawings new but I do admit it is a very relaxing way to attractively fill in a space
I wouldn't necessarily call it art either, but it is a good time pass.
