How to draw LOLO

Zentangle pattern: LoloLolo is our last heart-related tangle pattern before Valentine’s Day tomorrow. Happy Valentine’s to each and every one of you, and may your life always be filled with sweetness and love.

At first glance I thought this was the tangle Heartvine, but CZT Hsin-Ya Hsu’s Lolo is more the illusion of hearts compared to Heartvine. Hsin-Ya shows us a whole range of imaginative variations to try.

She also shares steps for two different ways to draw her tangle. The first uses a central “spine” stroke and the second version, which I used for my example here, is drawn without that first step and gives a pretty effect.

As easy as it looks, I found it took a few practice goes to get a pleasing outer curve that completes the shape. Once you have a look at all the ideas for fills and embellishments Hsin-Ya came up with, I know you’ll have fun trying Lolo in a bunch of different ways.

Here are the step-by-step instructions for Hsin-Ya’s first version of Lolo.

    Its beautiful and simple. Great for doing borders or ribbons!

    And as Linda mentions, it may not be as easy to get the curves right to complete the shape. I’ll be using this one often. In fact I am about to use it to complete the look in one of my drawings right now!!!Love this.

    Thank you Hsin-Ya Hsu!!

  • Joyce

    How funny! I was having a problem drawing “Jesterz” last week, and finally gave up and drew nearly an exact version of this hearts thing with the “Nightsbridge” inside it! Must be a mind reader, LOL.

  • Melena

    I love this! On the 2nd version I found I was making question mark shapes, first forward and then backward. That took care of the curves, for me at least. Very fun. I did a whole page in my sketch pad just trying out different variations. I will definitely use this one.
