After recently taking up Zentangling, I came across Eni’s stunning work whilst browsing images online. On seeing her different digital booklets of tutorials I decided to try out the Shading Fearlessly one in the hope it would improve my Tangle pattern shading. It’s very clear and easy to follow with handy tips for getting a step closer to realistic looking shading. Very pleased with my purchase and I may have to treat myself to the colouring and gems ones next!
