Here's a couple of mandalas I'm working on. Both are farther along than the pics posted. Will get some new pics before I go any further.

I'm doing the giraffe in watercolor pencils...which is way different than watercolors. :wink:

The other mandala is drawn on a scrapbook sheet from hobby lobby.

** I seem to only be able to attach one image :unhappy:

cool you can do straight lines for your mandalas [email protected]@...thinking of trying one Mandalas art, though I think it's gonna look more a doodle..maybe... :P

Okay, so I lied. The giraffe is regular watercolors , not the pencils. Here's where I'm at right now. Should finish it tonight.

Melody Jeoulex I've done several mandalas with straight lines...actually plan to do more of them. They have more of a geometric look to them. :biggrin:

:laugh: I missed a tiny spot, but it's basically done

It's a great mandala, I love the colors. Funny how so many people are doing giraffes lately. The universal mind must be thinking about giraffes and a bunch of people a tuning in to it.

I can't find the spot you missed.

How you manage the anxiety? Well, I would get so histeric doing that, I'm not that patient xD

It's some kind of metalic paint?

Cool how it changes the colour

This is so beautiful Leighann. The detail is so amazing.

Just a silver metallic pen FanKi, nothing awe inspiring, I promise. :laugh:

It's hard to get a good pic where I sit, because of the overhead lamp I use. You photographers could probably help. I might need to take them outside for a more realistic pic.

I usually like to take my pictures out side to get photos of them. But sometimes the lighting is actually too much outside.
