My favorite is the swirl with the tentacle-like shapes coming out - looks like a cool sea creature!
As to the brand, I like to call mine "zendoodles", though they kinda mock that, but it gets around the copyright thing, and I don't have to worry about their rules. I actually started doodling completely free-form, then tried to follow their steps/rules in a book and it killed it for me. I lost all the enjoyment, and I'm still trying to work back to where I was.
I know some people like rules, and there are times when rules are necessary, but... not in this case, and not for me!
Thanks! I like the tentacles, too. Wish I could be more intentional about making things look as I want them to!
I have always doodled, and what I liked about the Zentangle stuff was three-fold.
First - it talked about using the small cards to work on, so that projects do not seem overwhelming at the outset.
Second - they do not start out with an image in mind that they are trying to achieve - it just grows as you do it, which was very freeing for me, as I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to drawings, and so never wind up finishing anything!
And Third, I am a therapist, and I liked having a different tool to help people enter into a more mindful state - with the small scale and "no wrong mark" philosophy, it would be an unintimidating, fun way to be mindful.
So, while I don't like the idea of the copyright and all that, I can credit it with opening up a new and fun art form for me! I just won't follow all the rules! And ZenDoodle sounds just fine to me!
