Mandala 55 colour v1 by Mandala-Jim Mandala 55 colour v1 by Mandala-Jim
And for those of you who like my mandalas coloured.. here is number 55 after a very quick colouring (one evening! :D) in Photoshop

Original B&W drawing here: [link]

Which one do you prefer? :)

Thank you for any faves in advance.. don't have as much time on DA at the moment as I used to. I'll still reply to any comments though :D

this is one of those moments I wish my screen were bigger, so I could see full detail in the whole thing. now, when you zoom in, you have to scroll up and down to see it all. It;s lovely Jim.. I like this colourscheme. it's true, it looks kinda organic.. great job! :woohoo:

This theft has really made me consider how I submit to DA. I usually upload 300dpi images and also allow users to zoom in when looking at my pictures. I might have to change this now.. perhaps 72dpi (so just suitable for view and not printing) and maybe removing the zoom option. This is kind of sad as you know my work usually contains little details which will now not be visable) I would just have separate images showing part zoom (like on my etsy page). I don't know.. I'll have to seriously think it over

Well, what should I say? I really love this mandala - and also its colours! I has something mysterious - dark - poisonous like, don't ask me why :D
Great! :heart:

Thank you. I like the feelings you get from it too :) The colours just felt right with this one.. something organic or natural.. almost like a poisonous thistle :D
lovely Jim
the black part gives it another dimention don't you think?

Thanks Hadas. And yes, I think the black gives the illusion of some depth or at least another 'space'

Ooo. I like a lot! There's something really nice and subtly rich about the shades of green and purple you chose.

They're both very nice, but the colors are just popping and doing it for me!
