SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY – Our Zentangle® art and Mandala creator works with Adobe Illustrator only . Get the Affinity Designer version HERE
If you’ve ever marveled at the stunning complexity of Zentangle® style and mandala art, but feel overwhelmed by the idea of creating your own, then this Illustrator brush and template pack is the perfect shortcut for you. For those who aren’t familiar with Zentangle®, it’s beautifully complex art is created by combining multiple structured patterns and textures to build a larger image. This striking look is usually achieved through contrasting black and white, stippled fine liner.
Inspired by the art of Escher, and building on my years of experience designing mandala coloring books at a children’s book publisher, this complete pack contains stippled, fine liner pattern brushes along with a few art brushes and a set of mandala templates to get you started.
So, how does it work?
The Illustrator brushes do the hard work for you! They repeat the hand-drawn fine liner material along a stroke so simply draw a line and the stippled pattern will repeat automatically – saving you hours!
The pack contains all of these useful components:
- The Adobe Illustrator Brushes
44 Pattern Vector Brushes.
8 Art Vector Brushes.
1 Fine Liner Outline Vector Brush.
2 Stipple Shading Vector Brushes.
- A quick reference guide
This will help you quickly find the right Illustrator brushes for the task in hand. In PDF format and included in the brushes document too.
- Example files
I’ve included a number of the preview images for you to backwards engineer. All brushes are live so you can examine the settings easily. Please note: All example files are for personal use only and you may not use them commercially.
A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then adjust the Illustrator brushes and templates is supplied. This also includes a section dedicated to making your own mandalas.
