Wow, what fun; I must admit my Poke Roots sorta out maneuvered my Drupe, but the spirit of Drupe lives on in there somewhere, least that's what was in my head when I started. I had no trouble using Sandy Steen Bartholomew's suggestion that Drupe likes color. I love my colors too, especially Sakura brown (I think Maria Thomas is calling it Renaissance - whatever). Aura shading compliments of neutral gray Copic markers.

Well - I am totally, utterly and absolutely incapable of following instructions, especially when it comes to drawing grid based tangle patterns that require any sort of structured discipline. I only share this tile because I believe in the sharing and caring nature of the Zentangle community and we can each learn from other's challenges. I kept going, that's all I can say. When I realized I was about two million miles off pattern, I made the choice to keep going and see what would happen. I'm certainly not in love with this tile, but I did manage to give it some character and am happy with the fact that I remembered there are no mistakes and to keep going and leave the judgement at the door. Ultimately I enjoyed the experience, but it took some inner work to get there.
