"Leaf" No Lines

#031 01/23/2013
I'm trying to adjust my artwork to be more in line with classic Zentangle techniques .. one of the big things for that is to not actually draw over the string lines between each pattern, but instead let them just bump up against each other and hide the pencil lines in the patterns and shading.

I struggle with this a little, and I feel like I am "cheating" a bit by putting the straight edges of some of the patterns right on those string lines ... so while not drawing the lines as strings, I'm still drawing them as patterns.    Baby steps, huh? :)

Patterns Used:  Batllo, Shattuck, Static, Click Clack, Foot Lites, Beadlines, Bitten, Punch, Bunzo
