Mandalas
« on: September 10, 2010, 08:47:24 pm »
Kris and me have a passion for drawing mandalas, so we decided to create a topic about them. Maybe you would like to see some special ones, colourful and interesting ones.

When I was going to a drawing course, we painted a lot of pre-printed mandalas, filled them with colours. I do believe that the colours and forms we used are some kind of mirrors of the person who made them. It's interesting to look deep inside. :)

Here are the mandalas we made:

Some of them are really beautiful. :)

I wanted to buy some preprinted mandalas in shop but it was very epensive  :blink: So I decided to make some free ones from the beginning.
But then again, who does.

That's the best you can do, in my opinion. But on more lazy days you can find very nice patterns on the net and simply print them. :)

Thank you, Lucy!

My favourites are the yellow-purple one (top row, fourth from left) which reminds me of a fractal or particle trails in the detector of a collider and numbers 3, 5 and 6 in the bottom row which look very dynamic to me. I'll add the top left one for its herbal look. :)

Cheers!

Here's yesterday's work (even though it has stuff around I still consider it as a mandala):

Setting Sun Mandala! :bow:

Fractals? That would also worth a topic. :thumbup:

Maybe that's an image inspired by him. I couldn't find that either.

So, do you have a guess about which one I painted? Two options are already out, it's easier now. :lol:

Scored the first prize! :thumbup:

I was bored of always drawing round mandalas, so I made a rectangular, spinning one. :lol:
