Halftone mandala

Halftone mandala - student project

Hello Jane and thank you for the class,

I know this is a drawing class but I had the idea of drawing the mandala in Illustrator and using halftones instead of stippling. This is the first mandala I ever drew and there's some problems with the shadows but I kind of like how ambiguous it looks.

I used a double circle pattern as a starting point, the base pattern and a smaller one on top:

This is the end result, please share your thoughts!

And a zoom-in so you can see the level of detail without the high-res image:
