Mandala drawing 34 Coloured v1 by Mandala-Jim Mandala drawing 34 Coloured v1 by Mandala-Jim
Full screen please!

This time Mandala drawing 34 [link] gets colourized in CS5.

Not quite sure why I chose just blue for this one.. but I kind of like it.. and I think it suits it quite well.

I'm working my way through my gallery..

Didn't realise colouring could be so much fun :D

Hope you like it..

I love this drawing!! The color adds a lot to it and to be honest blue is perfect for this drawing. I did take a look at your other drawings and love the ones that you added color too. You are very talented and I think that after you add some color to your drawings you will notice a bigger impact that they will make. I do love your style and would love to use one of your drawings as a tattoo design if that is ok with you. Keep it up and cant wait to see more of your works.
What do you think?

Nice colours and item, but the symetry don't limit to hexagones...

This one is a visual of one from a waking dream / hallucination / experience I had in the middle of the night back in 2006. Entities decided to come and pay me a visit. This is the closest memory I have of them :D

Yes, It changed  my whole world and  universe view on practically everything  I 'knew' or thought 'knew'. My ideas and beliefs on everything were shattered. Death of the ego.. I then had to rebuild another reality based around this new knowledge. A life changing experience

I like it both ways Jim It's the one I like the most of your body of work, There are so few artist out there doing this type of work. Keep it up your work will live on way after you are gone so as will your name Jim. I Want to find a way to put my work into a program to add movement to my mandalas maybe in the future if there is such a thing. Just a thought.

pray meditate dont stop dont think just do the beauty within must come out be content with what you have, be the good steward over what has bin given, and your higher power shall make a way for more to be given, seek emptyness and you shall be filled be silent and you shall hear from within.
