Again, I love color and this one is colored quite well. The green adds another dimension of contrast and works well with the other colors. It looks like fish around the center piece. I don't know if that's what you intended but that's what they look like to me. I also see what looks like deities of some sort around the outer rim, holding suns. Unfortunately, some of the very fine detail is lost here but a beautiful work just the same.

Looks it.. but break the Mandalas down and they're really just a collection of simple patterns ;)

Very good use of the colors. But I think almost any scheme of colors would look good in your beatiful drawings.
By the way... are they little ladybugs at the end of the spears-like shapes? :giggle:

That looks great with the color. I am so prone to black and white myself, but I need to experiment with more color too!

Hi. I used a packet of very basic colouring pencils made by Crayola :) I'm not familiar with colouring but if I continue to enjoy it I might consider getting a better set :)

I'm going to colour this mandala a few times and try out various looks :)

Whoah, from what i can see you are very good at coloring my friend. :) You should try coloring one mandala in a Rainbow-way! Very impressive that will be.

Thank you. At the moment I'm using a very cheap set of 12 Kids pencils. I'm ordering some Prismacolor ones soon.. They seem to be the choice of most colour'ers :) I'm looking forward to experimenting with them :D Which brand do you use?

I use Staedler Ergosoft color pencils, they are the best in the world, but you have to use them quick. :3
