I spent a very relaxing afternoon playing around with this template, just me and my black ink pen. It turns out that my go-to move is straight lines like hatching, I really like filling space like that. I had to remind myself to incorporate some S shapes into it.
Originally I was going to just do pencil shading as a variation, I really liked that example but I've been working with pencil a lot as part of another project so it was more fun to pull out my pencil crayons and fill it in with my favourite colour combination.
This was a lot of fun! It was relaxing to know that the basic shape of the mandala was in place and symmetrical, even if I wanted to do an asymmetrical pattern to fill it in. Thanks for the instruction and the templates ;D
