This is the finished tangle!
My fascination with digital media has a place everywhere in my art. This group of visuals shows the steps I used to create a five inch by five inch zentangle using Corel Painter. You could do the same thing with Photoshop or any other drawing software of your choice.
I chose a round tip pen to work with—then changed the size when needed using black as the color for the most part.
At this point the next tangle I did opposite the way it would be done in my sketchbook. Using the Paint Bucket tool, I made sure the area was a closed off space so no color would leak out -then filled the space with black.
I then used a larger pen nib and created the white lines on top.
Next I created little black lines to show what line went under and what went over where. If you were using actual paper, you would draw in the lines and then fill the spaces around with black.
As I continued I drew the outline of one of the patterns I used and made sure all the areas were encased with no spaces open. I used the paint bucket tool to fill the desired spaces with black.
It only feels like cheating a little bit, I kind of like watching the spaces fill.
Eventually my tangle was finished.
