Tangle of the week: Zenfiddle

Here is another tangle that I need to practice before I start using it on my stock.

Tutorial here to see what it should look like.

And here is my attempt:

I do know where I’m going wrong. Zenfiddle uses C-curves and S-curves, which I automatically form into actual letter Cs and Ss when writing them the ‘correct’ way round. Then it comes to drawing the mirror images, and suddenly they’re a lot less letter-like.

Its going to take practice, practice, practice to get them looking the same way forward and backward.

You may notice I also changed the little detail in the centre of the ‘fiddles’. There’s no technical reason for that, I just love the look of the tiny star-shapes better than the suggested flowery bits.

So what do you think of Zenfiddle? Let me know in the comments!

  1. It feels like this would be complicated for me to do. I just know I’d end up going wrong somewhere in the middle. (and probably swearing about it! lol)

    I have a tendency to ‘vere’ off the straight and narrow, so I think I’d have to draw in some pencil lines first (using a very soft drawing pencil – so that it would be easy to erase when no longer needed), down the page, (and maybe across) so that I could keep on track (so to speak).

    Well done! ~ C. πŸ˜€

      1. I love your tangles QWC .. they flow and are so free spirited.

        I’d just need the pencil lines because, although I wish I could, I’ve obviously got some sort of OCD for ‘straight’ which requires me to draw patterns such as zentagles, like soldiers standing in a row.

        I so admire the free flow that others can do and wish I could do it too. I’ve tried, and failed, and I’ve now accepted that I’m a freaky ‘everything exactly in line’ thing. lol
