Zentangle Challenge #89 - UMT - Sankegg

I spent a lot of time yesterday and this a.m. trying to get this tangle and had all but given up when I had an inspiration. Basically I deconstructed the pattern in my own way (read: cheating) and I think I may have got it. I quickly did a tile then roughed out how I drew this tangle (see below).
I don't know how well you can see this, but basically I've penciled in a smaller triangle above the first V and worked out from there, penciling in triangles at the tips of the points to carry it forward. I have erased the pencil in this tile, but I think it could be actually drawn in and used as a tangleation. Hope this helps anyone else who might be having trouble ...

Neater only because it in Paint but the basic is the same.I Like your side tangles they go well together.

Nice, very nice! I like the way Sankegg changes into little birds.

Beautiful, I like the way how you combined it with dooleedo. And I think I am going to try the way you draw it, because I'am having problems to draw it right. Thanks for your explanations.

This was a tough one for me too. You created a cute whimsical tile. Thanks for your help!

Wish I'd seen your step-out before I did mine. It would have been a little easier. Your triangles are so uniform. Nice work!

I really like what you have done! Sort of similar to some of my ideas
I was out of town and did not look at anything until after I posted, and we both saw the botanical potential of sankegg!

Your result sort of looks like a flock of birds and flowers. Very nice of you to figure this difficult pattern out for us!
