Another fantastic colouring of one of my inked drawings.

Here is Mandala 43 [link] beautifully coloured yet again by my deviant friend :iconhadas64:

I think this is the best one yet Hadas!

Thank you so much :D

I find traditional art more praise worthy that digital art; wrongly or rightly. It just seems harder to me. Yet I find I fave more digital art than traditional. You are one of the few traditional artist I fave a lot.
    I think this is because most tradition artist refuse to learn anything about how to create digital art. My drawings are not anywhere as good as yours yet I have NEVER taken a photo that looked as good as the original. I create art that looks okay ish, and then I take a photo that looks like crap.
    It is not evil or wrong to edit a photo to make it as good as what you see with your own eyes, or make it better. Cameras just are not as good as the human eyes; they need a helping hand. Most traditional artists need to learn how to use photo editing software so they too can have art as good as yours. Expect many of them already are as good as you. We just don't know it from the bad pictures of their good art.

I also notice that your mandalas are built mostly on the 6 point star template.  I prefer the 8 point mainly because of the of the north south west east template.  Also, I tend to stay away from images that remind me of religious symbols.  Am I wrong to choose the 8 point style?
