Mandala 46 Rainbow by Mandala-Jim Mandala 46 Rainbow by Mandala-Jim
When I asked my 4 year old what colour should I colour my inked drawing [link] he said rainbow.

Little did I realise just how much work was involved. Many, many hours later.. stroke after stroke in photoshop.. here is the final result.

I feel both satisfied but also relieved here. I've very pleased with the result but it somehow seemed that I was never going to finish :D

Certainly my biggest colouring submission to date.

I've had to disable the zoom option on this drawing as I have found several people selling copies on Etsy.. :(

If you want to see it bigger consider a print :)

Anyway, what do you think?? Do you like it?? :D

This is simply a wonderful design with an unbleavable amount of detail and color. I'm sure yourson had no Iidea what he was asking when he said rainbow, but he was right, and worth all your time and effort. You know out of the mouth of babes.
I wound myself compleatly captivated by your design, and it took me awhile to realize that it was a repeating pattern and it was the way you used the colorsthatgave it the illusion of being otherwise. I also noticed that the colors can also give theillusion of a spiril pattern on top of the original.
All in all, keep listening to your son he didn't steer you wrong here. Keep up the great work. I'm sorry to here it was being stolen on you.
What do you think?
