Zentangle Challenge #294 - Fragments and Reticula

I'm not comfortable with Fragments and Reticula… I think I understand it better since it was well explained and we got to play with it at ZenAgain, but I really don't see the point in some ways. It seems to complicate and add stress, at least for me. When I saw this week's challenge (www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca, I actually cringed and thought I'd pass on this one. But then I felt guilty and decided I had to at least try a tile. As it turns out, it was quite fun. I chose the tangle Well, at least the first few steps of it. Here is the fragment (repeated and mirrored, the outline, and the final tile. It's a bit crazy how twisting, turning, different embellishments or shading can change a fragment!

This is a real beauty and I love it, everthing: how you play and bring variation in the fragments, the contrasts, the highlights, the composition; gorgeous!!!

So glad you included the basic fragment stage of this tile ... love that you used two sizes too. Beautifully done.

This is stunning! I was a bit intimidated by the challenge at first, but after looking at so many amazing submissions, it's all starting to make sense.

It's very interesting all the variations created from this fragment! Beautiful !

This challenge seemed to stress out a lot of people. It was nice to do, but I don't think it is something I will do on a regular basis. Maybe because grids themselves are so constraining. Anyway, you came up with an interesting and creative tile with the method.
