The String Method

People have asked if I use the string method, so I thought I would scan a drawing at each step. I often use 8's for my string, just placed every which where and way.

Then I do the tangles, and then I shade. Normally, I do some of the shading as I go because it's my favorite part of the zen.


  1. Your shading is wonderful. Adds such depth and feeling.

  2. oh, I do like that. Thanks for the step-by-step.

  3. Thanks for posting this, it really helps! You are awesome!!!

  4. Turtles at rest is awesome! Love the way you think! :)
