Opus is a super swirly and pretty tangle pattern developed by Maria Thomas of Zentangle, Inc. When I first encountered the tangle I thought it was very versatile, however, it was a little flat and lacked a bit of 3D aspect. I worked a bit to develop a variation that would be more "3D shading friendly", using some echo-lines:

This time I was super good and remembered to take pictures while shading. I decided to create a little gift for the lovely people who continue to support my work:
