Tanglewolf by gormash Tanglewolf by gormash
This is a piece of ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) that I did just for fun. The whole process have taken about 6-8 hours over two days, working on it whenever time permitted. The fun thing about it is that the only truly planned out part is the silouette of the wolf and border. All the patterns and shapes on the inside have evolved by itself as I kept on adding stuff.

Materials used:
- Daler-Rowney Bristol Board 250 g/m2
- Staetler Pigment Liner 01, 03, 05 and 07
- Pigma Micron 005
- 2H pencil

Original drawin size:
- Paper: 20 x 25 cm
- Image: 18 x 19 cm

Scanned at 300 dpi

I've listed the original (framed of course) for sale on "", a Norwegian site for selling and buying all kinds of stuff.

Very beautiful. I really like the details, patterns, and stylization. Nice flow and balance in the imagery. I actually visited Norway a few months ago. It's such a beautiful country.

I completely love it!! I am so impressed by the border which is very detailed! I wish I could do that too!!

Thanks for your kind words. :)
Making a border like that is actually pretty simple. Timeconsuming, but simple. Start by making one part of the frame (i.e. the flower-thingies in the lower left. Then start to add stuff, one small section at a time. After the flowers I made the bananashaped rug, and then surrounded it by swirls.
Each bit is simple when you do it separately, and not really planned out in advance. Drawing like this is a really organic process.

Thank you a lot for your advice :) Right now I need to plan a little before drawing until I am happy with all the shapes but I hope it will change soon :)
