All colouring methods are allowed.. ie. you can import the drawing into your favourite art program, you can print it out and colour with felt pens, pencils, pastels, etc.. OR
You can print it large and paint it with acrylics, oils or water colours... The choice is yours..
To make things easier all entrants will be sent FREE OF CHARGE the high resolution image found on my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/uk/shop/iheartman… This will allow you to print or edit at the resolution I created it at.. which is approximately 7000x7000 pixels!

I will place all the entries online in a special folder and let the DA users decide on who wins! The winner will receive a copy of my book "The Mandala coloring book" and 2nd place will win any drawing which is on my etsy store. If you are interested send me a note with your email address and I will send the hi rez file to you. Closing date is the last day of the month, the 31st August. If there are a few entries then I will consider running the competion monthly..
in honor of our mandala madness, i'd like to see if people wanted to use my line art and make it your own mandala. you can color it, you can collage it, you can remix it, you can add to it, or take away some of it.... do pretty much anything you want to it! download it as much as you like.
i would love to see a lot of people do this, it would be cool to see what it looks like from many people's eyes. there's no time limit, it can be of any quality. do it as many times as you like!
i'll make a folder for the finished collaborations.
please give me a credit and a link.
have fun friends! let's see what a great community is!
I love making mandalas. And I love colouring them. However the problem I keep coming up against is that it's very difficullt to find groups that accept mixed media. I love to hand drawn my mandalas and then scan them into photoshop and colour them that way. I have just invested in a huge collection of various prismacolour, faber-castell and derwent that I will try out in the coming weeks... We shall see.. So...
This group is for people that draw their mandalas by hand.
There are no strict rulez that say the colouring has to be ALL in pen or ALL in pencil or even all in photoshop.
If you draw ALL in pencil, great...
Also, this group welcomes those that don't want to colour their work...
Sometimes a black and white piece can be just as powerful as a coloured one..
I hope all that is clear.. NO COMPUTERS ALLOWED TO CREATE / DRAW the mandalas! Else all goes..
For the start can I request that you upload just 3 of your favourites so far.. we'll adjust the figures according the popularity of the group
Mandalas are a universal symbol found in most of the world's cultures. They are often ritualistic and usually associated with spirituality. They are widely known as Hindu and Buddhist religious symbols but they can also be seen in the sand paintings of many aboriginal nations, in the layout of temples and churches, even in the stained glass rose windows of cathedrals.
While the symbolism behind the mandala is usually the unity and order of the cosmos, they can also represent the integrity of the self. During the more difficult periods of his life, Carl Jung drew a mandala every day. This helped him not only with the development of his own spirit but it also enabled him to refine his great theories of the psyche.
To blog or not to blog up my journals, that is my question....
Well poll actually, quaddles-roost.deviantart.com/… I have been told by many that I should have a blog - dunnoh if I am really that interesting but suppose I do have some mad tangents leading me astray each week. So what do YOU reckon should I blog up my journal or not?
I am Co-Founder of a great new group with Mandala-Jim called for everyone that creates or just loves hand-drawn mandalas... NO COMPUTERS ALLOWED TO CREATE / DRAW the mandalas! Else all goes.. All membership requests should be accepted straight away as long as settings dont have another hiccup! For the start can we request that you upload just 3 of your favourites so far.. we'll adjust the figures according the popularity of the group Just three of the gorgeous ever growing collection... Any suggestions welcomed
You will notice (if you watch my scraps) that I am putting on a lot of tutorials covering paisley flowers and leaves - tangle borders and stylised animals, obviously not all of my watchers like these so this is probably best way of putting them on? I am also co-founder of which is only a month old: ...needless to say you would be very welcome to join/watch A FIRST in eight years on dA - I typed Valentangle into the dA search and mine was the ONLY dev, obviously not that many tanglers on here lately! Original challenge here iamthedivaczt.blogspot.co.uk/ under scroll down to #154 heading
suggested "hugging" as my next theme and with Valentine Day just yesterday (yep, I am a day late doing this!) My personal faves:
I do have a PLZ-Thanks folder in my faves, suggest you collect yours in a similiar fashion, - so if you use these don`t forget to thanks the creator by faving their work whenever possible! Those of you who know me well will of of course, be expecting them sorted alphabetically OCD can be a bitch
