I love how it has that 'connect the dots' feel forming into a picture and that twinkle to his eye

theres no earthly way of knowing..
which directions we are going...
theres no knowing where were rowing..
or which way the rivers flowing..
is it raining? is it pouring? is a hurricane a blowing?
not a speck of light is showing..so the danger must be growing
are the fires of hell a glowing? is the grizzly reaper moaning?
YES!
for the rowers keep on rowing and their certainly not showing...
any signs that they are slowing.......

yeah ive seen that movie too many times and also there is a pendulum song called through the loop with that for the beginning LOL
anyhow
I REALLY LIKE THIS

Thank you! Yes, it was my stipple time ^W^
In fact with the drawings I make now I can use the dots again, in some parts of the drawing. I like dots ^.^

Amazing likeness my friend :)

Have you counted the dots?

I wonder how many there might be? :D

:lol: Thank you so much, my friend!
No, I haven't counted the dots, I stopped at 1000 and fell asleep!
It's really time consuming, but very relaxing to work on it. Like traditional mandala's or zentangles or something like that. :D

I can't believe you counted the first thousand dots...lol :D

The likeness is very good, and I always enjoyed Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka; I quite like the Johnny Depp one also - I like where he was introduced to the Verucca girl and he said isn't that a spot on your foot? lol - a classic line.

But yes, I have heard of dot pictured (pictograms is their name, perhaps?) being very relaxing and theraputic :)

I forgot to reply to your other comment, but yes, I really like this new avatar picture - it's beautiful to look at and lose myself in the colours :)

What's a zentangle? - it sounds very mysterious. I could look it up, but I like finding out new things from friends :)

Zentangle, yes, Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It looks a bit like doodling, but now you follow some easy rules to make nice images.
I have the link from the original makers: [link]
But in fact, lots of people have done this on their own, but these people made a structure of it and gave it a name and then commercialised it.
It is nice to be busy with, I have done a few, but I like to follow my own rules. But working on it is very relaxing, although I intend to think too much about the next upcoming steps. I'm not an intuitive artist, I treat the artwork as a project, with begin, with end and with steps in between. Making art is partially craft, pure technical craft and partially creativeness or imagination. I like to be busy with both aspects. :iconsmilesweatdropplz: Pfew, that was quit a long story, hope I haven't been boring :iconsweetblushplz:

Never boring, that's the very last thing I would think of you :)

I've had a look at zentangles and they are very creative and look very time consuming.

I daresay they are all the more beautiful for their intricate design with the time invested in them.

I was wondering, have you ever done a mandala for yourself?

FractalBee Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013
Ehm, I once begon to made one for myself. But I didn't finish ... I don't know why not. It seems I wasn't very interested in it. Bit strange to think of :)

That's not unexpected, not finishing for lack of interest. I find my creativity to be a far more interesting topic than just talking about me, lol; I could talk about what motivates me to write and create for ages, but find myself a pretty boring topic :D

I think also, it's because you like to give mandala's as gifts and you like special energy to go with them for people :)

It can be difficult to gift to ourselves.
