There’s A Hole In The Ceiling!

Well, I haven’t Tangled for a while and while learning how to draw some things, I learned how to draw wood more accurately. So, here’s my version of a hole in the ceiling of a barn or some wooden building and a big bang on the outside. Or looking down a hole at a big bang 🙂 71 likes on Facebook, and that was before I shaded it! I’m a little proud of this!

What do you think? I tried the same type of thing a few months back, but I didn’t like the way it turned out. Here’s the old one…….

I’m thinking I like the new one better, but this could be a time warp or something! Suggestions please?

Watch Out For That Hole!!!

I have finally finished it! 11x14in mixed media paper with copic multiliner sp pens and Sakura Pigma Micron pens. Both various sizes. I used an 8B Graphite pencil for shading.
I absolutely LOVED doing this drawing. I only used three patterns, but they’re the type I like. I call them patterns unless they are official tangles. Then I’ll call them tangles.
I had been stuck in a little rut for a while, so I went through all 100 Zentangle books I have. Not really 100, but if you ask my kids or boyfriend I have 99 too many ;).
I love doing 3d type drawings/tangles, so I wanted to do something that really popped. I came across a pattern in Sandy strewn Bartholomew’s book, “Totally Tangled, ” called Scraper. That is what the pattern is! The wood is drawn with wood grain, and the inside of the hole is a pattern called Afterglow. It is one of my favorite ones to do. You can find it at http://TanglePatterns.com.
This drawing reminds me of looking through a hole in the floor and getting dizzy. I get dizzy when I look down from tall Heights. It also reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. I haven’t seen that movie in a long time, and the hole was black with things floating around, but it still had the crazy effect like this does.
I showed a friend of mine the hole, and he asked me how much I wanted for it! So, I told him I would make him another one for free and if someone sees it and wants one then I’ll charge them a small fee. I did go through a few pens!
So now I’m going to end this and continue on with the next! I hope you like this as much as I do!
