I like this picture a lot however there is something missing in it. I love how you were very detailed in the creation and focused on makeing sure everything was symmetrical. I feel that it lacks pop though. I can see that you did not want it in color but I feel that that might not be a bad idea for this picture. However I would have to say that it would make a killer tattoo ;D The detail itself is amazing and very very amazing. Keep up the good work maybe try a hue just a thought. Cheers Mate.

The outer border on this one looks like it's falling away allthough it's a two demensional drawing as I look longer at it, it deepens and shifts you have to look at it for a few moments for the effect to work, but this is true with all mandalas.
Good work Jim.
