How to draw TRI-BINE

Zentangle pattern: Tri-bine. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. All rights reserved.Taiwan CZT Laura Liu’s Tri-bine is an easy grid-based tangle that gets its great 3D effect with the final shading.

Laura is from the 4th CZT class and undoubtedly the first of the now 95 CZTs in Taiwan. {As of this date, Taiwan ranks third in the list of CZTs by country behind the USA and Canada.} Diane has since returned to Providence for CZT 17 with her daughter CZT Diane Tai.

You may recall that Diane created the lovely Alaura tangle in honor or her mother. Both CZTs have several tangles on the site and you can locate them under laural and dianet in the TANGLES BY ARTIST section in the left sidebar.

Laura discovered Tri-bine using the “what if” scenario when she was practicing the Zentangle-original tangle, Cubine. She writes,

Tri-bine is in honor of Cubine.

One day when I was practicing Cubine, I was thinking ‘what if I use a triangle instead of a square?’. Here comes ‘Tri-bine’.

You get the same dimensional effect as Cubine after using pencil shading.

Laura illustrates the simple step-by-step instructions for drawing Tri-bine below.

I “what if” all the time when I’m learning or practicing tangles, do you?

  • Great variation on Cubine! Looking forward to using this pattern. Thanks

  • I use cubine a lot because I love it’s easy 3D effect. I can see that I’ll be using Tri-bine often too for the same reason. One suggestion I’d make is that instead of drawing the triangles first after the initial grid, and then adding more grid lines through the points of the triangles, just draw the grid with the lines closer together and then it’s easy to get the triangles lined up.
