How to draw 3D-ROOM

Zentangle pattern: 3D-Room. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Today’s cool 3D-Room tangle comes from CZT Mei Hua Teng, known as Damy. She has almost 20 tangles on the site as well as a couple of Strings for us all to enjoy.

Damy writes this tangle resembles the corner of a room so that’s how she named her tangle 3D-Room.

3D-Room is quite absorbing to draw and it’s very versatile. Changing it just slightly creates a totally different 3D look and for my example I chose one of the variations from the basic tangle Damy includes below in her tiles.

By using the same orientation of the fills, the pattern has its own internal rhythm. In this case I used a black fill followed clockwise by no fill, then graphite, then dots and used this same order in each grid square. I love these geometric tangles, a few straight strokes with many different looks.

Damy illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing 3D-Room and features it in a tile with several Zentangle®-original tangles. The Zentangle-originals are often referred to as the “official” tangles and you can find them all on the ZENTANGLES > LINDA’S LIST OF OFFICIAL TANGLE PATTERNS tab on the top menu bar. I’ve also included the link below.

In this tile montage, Damy shows several ways to vary 3D-Room in her lovely monotangle Zentangle® tiles. In the top left example she shows how the stroke in Step 1 can be “short or long, left and right … When you change the position [or the angle] of the straight line, the fun arises.” Damy shows 3D-Room with no grid, a regular grid and a channel grid.

Today is Anzac Day … “fallen in the cause of the free”

For the Fallen Robert Laurence Binyon, by artist William Strang. Laurence Binyon Poem by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943), published in The Times newspaper on 21st September 1914.

From the poem “For the Fallen”, by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943), published in The Times newspaper on 21st September 1914.

April 25th is one of Australia and New Zealand’s most important national commemorative occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

“Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders ‘who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations’ and ‘the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.’ Observed on 25 April each year, Anzac Day was originally to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

Anzac Day is also observed in the Cook Islands, Niue, Pitcairn Islands, and Tonga, and previously also as a national holiday in Papua New Guinea and Samoa.” Wikipedia

Anzac Day is broadly equivalent to our Remembrance/Veterans Day (honoring all who served) combined with Memorial Day (commemorating those who died serving).

To mark Anzac Day today in the UK, Prince Harry “laid wreaths during a dawn service at London’s Wellington Arch and on behalf of the Queen at the Cenotaph”. ~ BBC News
