I can't believe you made this without any measuring devices. I can see some wonky lines but still very impressive. I love the transition of the colors. Awesome job

thank you very much.
working without measuring devices is part of the whole idea of drawing the mandala as a meditation :)

I like that idea. I will have to try it. I always use a compass, ruler, triangle, and protractor for my pieces to make sure they are as correct as possible. That's my perfectionist side coming out but I will give the free form meditative process a try in the future! I am interested to see how it will turn out.

The colors are beautiful, and I like the merkaba... with the thing inside it, it reminds me of a four-dimensional geometric figure, like a hypercube.

ah, shading. Yes, that's been on my mind a lot lately too! :w00t:
Check this out [link] I just discovered some major things about that. Under the deviation is 2 links to short but good tutorials on shading. How shadows are never black. Might be interesting for you to see em too?

ah, okay then. I don't have a clue how you'd do shading in your work. For me, what one can do with colour pencils is a totally new area! Especially, if you'rre working on black, I don't know how shading works. Time to find out, I guess :lmao:
I'm looking forward to the faber castells, since they'd allow the work on black. With the ones I have now that doesn't work. I worked on black in my earliest pieces. It's so beautiful, I love it. But since I wanted to use colour, I changed to white paper, instead of black artboard :D

:iconhadas64:
hadas64 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012
in that case, buy a few whites because this is the real secret behind the colors and it makes the whole diference!!
there is also a kind of a spiritual idea behind it (if you are interested) which is:
the black paper symbols the planet before light came. the white color symbols the light that brings out all the colors.
I hope I didn't put to much words in here :)

Thanks for the tip! And no, not too many words at all. That is beautiful! I didn't know that. Am attracted to working white on black, but indeed, missed the colours. I only used silver and gold, pretty too. But maybe later on I'll try another black one. First I wanna see what it does on my day and night piece, the last one with the star. I can just 'imagine' it, but can't do what I see yet. Even with nice pencils, I haven't a clue if I can mix colours to find the right shades :rofl: It will certainly be an adventure! How exciting to try something new! :boogie:

Thanks for the comment on my Merkaba drawing, I really appreciate it. You're drawing is always so beautiful and full of wisdom! I love how you connected the flower of life with the Merkaba on this. Free hand sacred geometry seems so interesting, this piece totally shows how amazing the experience of creating it must be. Thanks for sharing it with me, the message behind this piece is beyond words.

I'm so glad for your comment. I feel there is alot I can learn from you.
you mentioned the exact and most important element in this work for me, the experience and process I went throug in creating it.
in order to creat it with free hand, one have to explore so many conections and structures inside the flower of life and the merkaba.
In order to draw the Merkaba my daughter and I actualy took six sticks and built a merkaba which is now hanging on my window.
I wathced it for hours before trying to draw it.
I still watch it alot :)
in order to creat the flower of life I explored every center of the circels and how they connect to each other and what happens on the way.
well, you probably know all this.
it is a wonderful and very recomanded experience :)
thanks again and nice to meet you

How in the world did you do this without measuring devices?! You must really trust yourself and your Muse! Wink. I used not to use a compass, but lately have decided its much easier and less frustrating to use it! Oh, and balance (of peace, rest, creativity, work love and service... did I leave any out?) seems to be the key in life. Your God symbol in the center seems so orderly and mathematical... Do you suppose God is like that? Maybe He/She is! Wink.

hadas64 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012
the symbol in the center is called "Merkaba" and it is a very profaund symbol in the KABALA and also in sacred geometry and all other cultures.
I guess you know about it.
about the measuring devices... I don't know what to say. it is I guess part of the search , the meditation, the process of creating a mandala.
my teacher says we all have it inside us. but she also says, if it isn't symetrical or exact, it doesn't really matter :)

I only know that in the workshop I attended with Matthew Fox and nuns, we put a God symbol in center of the Mandala, and we were free to depict this as we saw fit. I have continued to do this with the mandalas I make. I place either words or pictoral representations (or both) around that God symbol of the things I hope to manifest or bring into my life. I do not know about the Merkaba.

I have not used measuring devices in my mandala making up to this point, since, for the most part these have been prayer tools, rather than art pieces. But I have taken to using ruler and compass more in my artwork in general (particularly when I need to draw a circle, building, or piece of furniture... and when I look at your beautiful mandalas, I find myself thinking, at least in some instances, "Wow.... I think I would need a compass or ruler to create something like that!"

Trust, trust, trust, though. We can just let God/The Universe guide our hand. I do like to do that, and have been doing that a lot more lately, sometimes not knowing at all what will come out till it appears on that page. I think it is important, many times, for artists to go right to the root of spontaneous creativity, and really let what comes out just come out. Sometimes things like rulers and compasses can interrupt that flow!

K, Hadas. 'Nuff for now. Hope I am not a pest with all my questions and comments. Have a great and creative day!

Peace,
M:)

Ty very much Hadas. Goodness, the third link has a big ad at the top for "sexy, shirtless celebrities"... sexy AND spiritual, that page. Lol. Just teasing. All things are spiritual, anyway (in my humble opinion)... all one, big God. Wink. I bookmarked the links three links to look at in more depth at my leisure. -M :)
