Zen Fine Liner Art and Mandala Creator

Creating stippled Zentangle® inspired art and mandala designs just got a whole lot quicker and easier!

Zentangle Art & Mandala Creator

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 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 to build a larger image. This striking look is usually achieved through contrasting black and white in 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 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 along it – saving you hours!

Included in this set:

• The Brushes – 44 Pattern Brushes. 8 Art Brushes. 1 Fine Liner Outline Brush. 2 Stipple Shading Brushes.
• A quick reference guide – This will help you quickly find the right brushes for the task in hand. In PDF format and included in the brushes document too.
• Example file – I’ve included a preview image for you to backwards engineer. Please note: these are for personal use only and you may not use them commercially.
• Instructions – A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then adjust the brushes is supplied. This also includes a section dedicated to making your own mandalas.

    Hi Annabel, Do you have more of “Product Curator Adrianne” creative brushes in your collection that I can take a look and buy if I like. I already purchased the “https://www.designcuts.com/product/zen-fine-liner-art-and-mandala-creator/”. I am interested in any of the work “Adrianne”. Please point me to it. Thank you for bringing such good packages.

    Any news about whether this works with Procreate?

    • Annabel Smith

      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment Peggy!

      The designer has provided these brushes in AI format only, so unfortunately, these are not compatible with Procreate- my sincerest apologies for any disappointment caused!

      If you would like any help in finding any similar resources for your particular projects, please do let me know- I am always happy to help :).

    Hey, this looks class! Will it work with Procreate?

    • Carol Stratford

      Hey Cait,

      Thanks for the comment on this one! So the designer hasn’t listed Procreate as being compatible but I would be more than happy for you to purchase and if it doesnt work, I will refund for you :)

  5. Mark Petherbridge

    I would also like to see this product available for Affinity Designer.

    • Carol Stratford

      Hey Mark,

      Thanks for the comment! We will definitely raise this with The Artifex Forge to see if this can be done :)
