This piece is striking. Exquisite line work and attention to detail. Truly an exercise in patience and focus. I feel you have achieved a great balance between Positive and Negative space in this drawing, and an even overall sense of balance. As far a s constructive criticism goes, i can think of little. My only suggestion is, I would love to see more info and technical data on this masterpiece. Give the data on the original drawing, in the comments immediately following it. With a drawing of this caliber, there will surely be many requests for things such as Media used, time invested, original dimensions etc. Thank You for sharing your work with the world and making it a more beautiful place to live.

Beauty! For me it gives the expression of some kind of a totem. With snakes, claws and teeth. Like a labirinth, you have to get into the very innermost of it

I Have to confess i'm a little cheater in drawing mandalas, so your work is even more impressive!

Cheater? No, I don't believe in such a thing.. I think it's fine to use a computer (for achieving the symmetry) as long as you say you do.. and if people come back and tell you "that's not the way they are supposed to be drawn" tell them where to go. It's usually because they haven't a clue to do what you do :)

I love the geometry in this one, it looks like you put more effort in this one than the others of the series. Inks are deep and detailed, nice work!

Your gallery has made a huge impression on me. How much time do you spend drawing mandala?
Reply
:iconmandala-jim:
Mandala-Jim Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Wow. Thank you. Time varies. Depends whether I draw the whole thing (35+ hours) or just a segment and use the PC to flip/rotate..

If possible, I like to draw for an hour or two per day :)

hey jim! my last two coloring projects worked out so well and i need kind of a break from all my super serious paintings, so i'd like to color this one. is that cool with you? dud, you gotta get this stuff out of scraps and into your gallery so people know it's there! the stuff you have in scraps is better than anything in my gallery! such awesome work! :)

i'm so pleased that you like it. i think it's the most difficult line art i've ever colored. it's neck and neck with a piece of ushiyasha's (founder of the shapists) line art. it's totally fun to have a challenge, though. i was getting a little grumpy with it on the 5th or 6th time i started over! lol! lucky 7 i guess. :D
