Hey guys! I’ve been working with this new floral zentangle inspired design I wanted to share with you today. For my latest Drawing assignment I attempted to re-imagine the pattern as a “3D drawing”.
Above is the design I drew on foam board and then cut out using an x-acto knife. I mounted it slightly raised away from the wall (about 1 inch, using small pieces of foam board). I did this so that you can see the shadows through the parts of the pattern I removed. The piece is about 1.5 x 1.5 feet in size.
Below is my second successful 3d experiment with this pattern, drawn with permanent marker on a Styrofoam ball. First I painted the ball with a few layers of white acrylic paint.
I made a few other attempts that did not turn out but I guess you don’t know until you try!
Here is what the original pattern looks like in it’s 2D form:
Have a great weekend everyone!
