How to draw ENDO

The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Happy Monday! Our get-the-week-going-with-an-easy-tangle is Endo by West Virginia tangler Beth Snoderly.

Beth has over two dozen great tangles on the site, many are my personal favorites, but it’s been quite a while since we had a new one from her.

She says she made a promise to herself to tear herself away from her work deadlines and send in a new tangle for us to share. And we’re very happy she did.

Here it is. Endo is the name I picked. My hubby thinks it looks like DNA.

I was playing with Rain and messed up, then started playing with it and ended up with this tangleation.

In Zentangle® I have learned mistakes are an opportunity to create something new. This one is one of my favorite mistakes.

I was playing around with Endo for quite a while — including this lacy-looking version I think would look great in white ink on a black tile — before I realized that it’s also similar to Livia Chua’s Frillee from way back when. But Endo differs with the Zentangle-original Rain as its starting point versus Frillee‘s curves and Beth shows us many ways to vary this one.

Beth illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Endo below and in her monotangle she shows some of those ways to vary it with different embellishments.

Beth explored her “mistake” in her journal and here she shares the pages of her experimentation. “I like playing with the scales on the outside of the scoops. Sometimes it looks like orange slices hooked together, sometimes not.  Just depends on how you choose to decorate it.

TIP: For those of us “of a certain age” … a reminder that you always have the ability to increase the magnification of your browser pages by holding down the CTRL key on your keyboard and rolling the mouse wheel. There are also keyboard strokes to accomplish this,  CTRL ++, but I find the mouse wheel more convenient. To return the zoomed pages to normal viewing simply press CTRL 0 (the number zero, for zero magnification I’m guessing, not the letter o).

I like this last variation at the bottom left where the straight stroke in Step 1 is eliminated and you simply start with the zigzag line. Creates an interesting negative space shape like the tip of an arrow.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours.
