Olympic Union


Olympic Union - Linq, Knightsbridge, Oof, Footlites

Whew, this was my 6th attempt and my interpretation of the Diva Challenge #79. I was starting out with Oof to represent the Olympic emblem and the first time I drew it on a scrap piece of paper, I did fantastic. Maybe even more than fantastic, I did so well with proportion and distance for the lines I though oh wow this tangle is easy. Ha ha ha ha - I nearly gave up when I could not repeat the awesomeness that I had on the scrap piece of paper, but I stuck with it and finally got a set of "rings" that I think are worthy of being a tangle.

I am glad I stuck with it because I am so pleased with the outcome and really like this piece. *after the 6th time lets hope so*
