Here's a super tip:when colorizing a drawing with colored pencils ("colorizing" means only adding a hint of color, not really coloring the whole thing), use a little bit of a contrasting color to add interest. I used purple and magenta as the main colors and added a hint of pale salmon.
I have to confess, although I really enjoyed the PROCESS of drawing and colorizing this tile -- both tangles are extremely enjoyable, I wasn't crazy about the result. Fassett isn't that easy to make 3-dimensional when drawn really tiny, and I felt the picture lacked a MAIN feature, a focal point. I do really like the left corner where the Jaysix comes dissolved, and the black and white large Fassetts, fun!
Yes.... I know that the Zentangle® method is largely about the process.... but I ALSO find it important to enjoy the final picture. Not badmouthing my own work (as that is a completely no-no in my book), but this is one is going to stay registered more for the fun than for the product.
I think I might try to tackle Fassett again in a more organic way.
On to the next!
