Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde


This zendala has a split personality. It is dare #68 from Erin at http://thebrightowl.blogspot.com/
I was quite taken with this template. I like the stars and orbs. Even so, I stared at it for a while before I could finally decide which tangles to use. 

I knew right away I wanted to divide this using a curved line - like a yin yang symbol. So one half was colored black leaving only the template lines white. I used my IDentipen to color the black parts. It filled in those areas quickly and solidly. The tangles were done with a white gelly roll pen on the black sections and a black Micron was used on the white sections. I used a white Conte chalk pencil in the black area and a regular pencil to shade on the white side.

    1. A reasonable job by Google Translate?
      "So amazing you spent abroad of the day and night - a form of Yin-Yang makes the job even more interesting! Love Your Zendala!"

    2. Several times I tried to translate the comments back and forth to Google Translate, but it is often quite incorrectly translates the phrase, distorting the meaning of what was said.
      Thank you, Margaret, posted a translation.

  5. What a great idea to use a curved lined. You have a wonderful and creative imagination. I wish I'd thought of that. : ). Your Zendala is beautifully drawn and I love the tangles you chose to fill the spaces.

  11. Brilliant and so imaginative zendala!! Very fine and delicate contrast of black and white. Really great!
    I had a similar idea with deviding the template like a yin yang symbol.

  14. Sue, I tried to divide mine unevenly and really did not care for the results but now that I see yours I think it was because mine lacked definition. By using a double line you really defined the sides and it looks fantastic. I love the tangles you chose! Beautiful work!

  15. This is terrific Sue. I'm working on one and decided part-way through that I want to take another swing at it with a curved division just like you've done!

  16. Sue you did a great linework on this one. You created a beautiful opposite in your composition, but what makes it so more beautiful to me is how you divided the circle, by using the Yin-Yang string. Makes it look so in balance. Well done.

  17. So far my favorites are like yours, black on white, opposite white on black. I like the way you divided the template also.
