... or Zentangle?

collecting and testing ideas to Batumber
Some days ago I found string #209 on and it reminded me of Tetris the (very old) Gameboy game. I loved Tetris, so I had to create a tile with that string, but I didn't want to copy it 1:1 so I changed the string a bit.

But before I started drawing on my tile I tested the tangle I wanted to draw. I knew I wanted to draw some "Batumber" and combine it with some other patterns but in the end I drew a monotangle because Batumber is really convertible.

3,5" tile without shadows

After I tested Batumber in many different styles and forms I started to draw my tile. I used a ruler for the pencil grid but drew the "tetris-blocks" freehand over that grid.

Sometimes I thought I need a magnifier because the pattern on the bottom left and upper right are really really small and it was difficult to fill the little black spaces. And shading these tiny leafs was difficult too.
But I'm sure I will use Batumber again. I love that tangle <3

Material I used: 
  • Peter Pauper Press Artist's Tile Set
  • Staedtler pigment liner 0.05 / 0.01 / 0.02
  • Faber Castell 9000 Pencil H // 3B
  • Cretacolor paper stump
  • Dr. Ph. Martin's Pen White for highlights
