Tip: Just be careful with your hand on the tile while drawing, the gel pen smudges much easier.
Interesting find: Yellow is not a good colour for the circles. Almost any other darker shade bleeds into the yellow.
I used the "STEADTLER triplus fineliner" for the lines inside the circles and "Typo" gel pens for the circles. The shading was done with "Colleen 775" pencils.
Unfortunately I could not find the name of the tangle design online in order to credit the creator.
After my last art post "To colour or not to colour" I told you I preferred the black and white tangling. I did however want to see what the colours would look like on the official Zentangle® tiles.
Here you can see the results!
I had a few interesting decisions while making these tiles and I thought they might be interesting to you:)
1 - I found that if I make the circles in a lighter shade of the colour, the line inside the circle makes a little dot on the edge of the circle, which gives it a cool effect.
2 - I even used a completely different colour in the red tile for the circles - I used pink. So depending on which angle you look at the tile it looks like it is a different shade of red (also cool).
3 - I experimented with a normal gel pen in the blue and green tiles, because the gel pen dries differently on the paper, giving it a different texture.
4 - I did shading the lighter shade of the colour and experimented with shading inside the circles vs outside.
