Zentangle Challenge #101 - second entry

I couldn't sleep last night, and didn't feel like reading or sewing, and the internet was down... so I took out the Zentangle stuff and started experimenting with Phicops. The more I drew it, the more I liked it... but I couldn't let it stand alone so Hollibaugh went into the background. When I got up this a.m. it looked pretty stark so I added bits and pieces of embellishments, and other tangles to the hollibaugh lines, then shading. May favorite part is the Phicops behind Flez - I love the wavy edge. I still want to play around with Phicops some more because I can't seem to get it sort of stubby and round. I haven't checked out many of the other entries this week (because internet has been a pain), but it's up again so that's what I'm going to do now.

I do so love the lines in this one....just enough pattern to give it amazing interest and enough white space to make the tangling fabulous!

Oooo--I love the effect of this with the Hollibaugh, it's all floaty and sublime! Love all the groovy things you've done with Phicops--brilliant!

Love, LOVE this, Sue! I'm so glad you left me a comment, or I might never have found you! Your work is amazing - what a great talent. Love your webpage, especially that 3-D cube - gonna investigate that!

Tis is a great great tile. You made the phicops look so defferent, biy embellish them in different ways. You certainly did a great job on this one.

This is great. It looks like an exotic flower, probably a cactus judging from the lack of leaves.

It sure is hard to stop on just one phicops, fun!

The hollibaugh gave Phicops interest and depth. Love how it turned out.
