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!
