How I Start a Drawing TutorialMy drawings are very random. I don't really have a plan when I go into them. I don't plan the colors and I usually don't have any idea of what I'm going for except is it abstract or is it going to be a face? I do have a process for nearly...

Inspired By Nature...Again I was recently watching some nature shows and got carried away at looking at the patterns on shells and cells and other creatures. The patterns in nature blow me away. The striations in muscles and the centers of flowers provide a few...

Zentangle Pattern Books

Dawn Summerall is the artist and author of the Fast Freehand Fills series. There are four zentangle pattern books in this series. This entire series is available in an updated .pdf format on this site. You can pay a low price and download the book for yourself and print out whatever pages you need to. It is a little better formatted than the Kindle version. The Mindful Mandalas book is also available on this site for download. There are many zentangle patterns grouped and cataloged within these books. You can see everything in one place rather than hunting through the site. These books will help you find inspiration for your next drawing project. You can draw zentangles. Anyone can draw these patterns even if you have no artistic skill. The books and patterns are easy to work with and don’t really have a learning curve. With the exception of Dark Celebrations and Mindful Mandalas. These books are a little more complicated. I have found I really enjoy creating drawing prompts and drawing sugar skulls and mandalas. If you want to learn how to make a basic sugar skull the instructions can be found in Dark Celebrations. If you are interested in learning how to draw a mandala you can learn from the Mindful Mandalas book. A lot of the content within these books is distributed across the site but, the books are more organized and have everything in one place to save you time and generate a little bit of revenue to support Dank Doodles and Dawn.
