Mandala drawing 51 by Mandala-Jim Mandala drawing 51 by Mandala-Jim
This is the last of the drawings I did whilst waiting for broadband in my new house. I have intentionally left out dark shading as I definately intend to colour this one. I think it looks kind of cool regardless. And before you ask, yes... I did a lot of pencil work before inking this one :D

Usual pens, 60cm square bristol.

Enjoy colouring Mandalas? Check out my book here: www.amazon.com/The-Mandala-Col… Also available from other Amazon.xx Thx!

It's a little different from my usual circular mandalas but I hope you like it :D

UPDATE: Colour version now online :) mandala-jim.deviantart.com/art…

Really impressive inking job, and I'm sure the pencilling must have been crazy also! I'm such a sucker for inking and this is just fantastic, I love it :)

Hey Jim. I really enjoyed this one for its difference. The disconnected elements are intriguing and have me imagining celestial travel. The central strength is excellent, pulling the eye strongly to the centre. cheers. Steve.

That is so fantastic. It must have been a nightmare to work out and get it perfectly symmetrical. It pleases the OCD side of me. xD
