Complex Mandala Drawing Template

complex mandala drawing template

Considering the success of my Mandala Drawing Templates, I decided to create this new, more detailed version of the template so now you can draw even more complex mandala designs!

Just click on the template image above to open a new tab with the full sized image, then you can right click and choose “save image as” to download it to your computer.

Print the template off on an 8.5 x 11″ piece of paper and then use it as a guide underneath copy paper or even sketchbook paper to draw your mandala!

I find it works best to paperclip it on at least 2 sides to prevent it from moving around under the page while you draw.

Here is a mandala I drew using this template:

I hope you will find this mandala template useful!

Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below, and feel free to share your mandalas with me over on Instagram by tagging me @julieerindesigns or post your link below.

If you’re new to drawing mandalas, or want something a little less complex, you might want to check out my other Mandala Drawing Templates here!

Have a great day everyone and have fun drawing those mandalas.

 

Cheers!

Watercolour Paintings

I have been using my new watercolour set quite a bit over the past few weeks and thought I would share some of my paintings with you guys!

I started off with a few tutorials to get my artistic juices flowing, such as this watercolour feather tutorial which I used for the feathers in the image above.

I have already been using some of these paintings for my finished designs, like the diamond below you may recognize from my Watercolour Diamond Pattern that I shared last week.

I followed this tutorial in order to create these beautiful (and easy) watercolour gemstones!  I also referenced this step-by-step tutorial in order to draw the diamond shape correctly.

Here I was working on my calligraphy and lettering skills by painting out some words that I can mix and match in various ways (sexy pizza pie anyone?).

Here is a close up of the pug face I painted!  I think it turned out pretty good.

This slice of pizza is going to come in handy for some cute new designs (and is making me hungry).

Make sure you follow my blog so you can find out how I will use these in my upcoming designs!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my sketchbook watercolour paintings, and a bit of the preliminary process of creating my finished designs.  Let me know what you think!!

Have a great week everyone.

Cheers,

My Sketchbook

I’ve almost filled up my pocket-sized Moleskine Sketchbook so I thought I would share some of my drawings with you all!

Please excuse the terrible lighting in the photos.  At least I did my nails so they don’t look like total crap!

I particularly like how the owl on the top turned out, and the tiny cat studies were super fun to draw.

All drawings were done using either Pilot Fineliner Pens or regular old office pens and highlighters!

Most are drawn from images I found on Google or elsewhere online, except for the abstract ones.

I’ve used a few of them to create larger drawings or paintings as you may be able to tell if you’ve seen my other work!

If you like my sketches I would love it if you shared it on Pinterest or elsewhere!

Anyway I hope you’ve enjoyed this little sneak peek into my sketchbook and maybe it will give you some inspiration for your own drawings 🙂

If you would like to see some of my finished work you can check out my gallery page, or my website.  And be sure to follow my blog to keep up with my latest designs!

 

Cheers!
