How to draw 1/2 ORBS

Zentangle pattern: 1/2 Orbs. 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.Happy Friday! Taiwan CZT Mina Hsiao is back with another of her intriguing tangles, 1/2 orbs. This is her 10th tangle on the site.

1/2 Orbs aka Half Orbs came as a result of her experimenting with her CC tangle and she writes, “some auras crossed. My inspiration comes from this.

I think 1/2 Orbs benefits from a larger scale than I used for my example as you’ll see below with Mina’s examples, however it still looks delicate and unusual even at this size. I went a little crazy with the graphite so then I went back with my Micron to fill in a few spaces, as shown right.

Mina illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing 1/2 Orbs below and features it in a monotangle. In Step 5 she shows a variation where the auras drawn in Step 3 meet at the base of the curves drawn in Steps 1 and 2.

Here Mina demonstrates how her variations of 1/2 Orbs in Step 5 can be drawn “off the grid” in a pretty, organic Zendala tile.
