As soon as I saw that the focus tangle was Zonked I knew that I wanted to morph it into another Tangle. I didn’t even practice it in my sketch book and I was so absorbed in drawing the tile that I forgot to take work in progress photos. Not to worry though as I have a breakdown of the tangles I used and I’ll explain why I chose these particular tangle to use in the morph.
I started with the curved version of Zonked.
Then for something a little different I used the straight version of Zonked with a little twist. I drew the lines close together on one side and far apart on the other giving the tangle an off-centered look.
This in turn reminded me of Maryhill so that came next. To blend the two tangles I added a little rounding to Maryhill.
Finally I ended with Fassettoo because I wanted a tangle that was quite different from Zonked as the last Tangle. Again I added a little rounding to Fassettoo to create a connection to the rest of the tile.
All these tangles are drawn in triangles, consist mainly of lines and relate to each other when you add rounding to all of them. Here is my final tile.
As always if you see something in this post that you would like to explore in you own work, please feel free to do so.
