Zentangle: Several More Zentangles

I have the results of several challenges to share with you, but, before we get started, I want to explain a few things. First, all of these drawings were drawn in Inkscape, and all of the effects such as colors, shadows, bevels, and overlays were added using a very old version (version 3) of Photoshop.  Photoshop defines a pattern as a repeating image. You can use an image of anything — paper, wood, or a drawing — as a basis for your pattern. In several of the images displayed here, I used a pattern overlay to create the background.

Joey's Weekly Tangle Challenge #207

I wanted to see if I could actually finish someone else's tile. So, I drew this as much like the original as I could.

Joey's Weekly Tangle Challenge #206

I love this silly little picture. I had a hard time with this challenge. There were two failed attempts, and I was actually going to go with one of them, when I started doodling and came up with this.

Joey's Weekly Tangle Challenge #200 & 202

I particularly like this background. It is a standard pattern that came with Photoshop. I added a gradient overlay to the drawing. I like the result. It makes the drawing look, almost, as if it was drawn in ink.

This challenge uses the pattern Verve. It reminded me of the pattern Stripping and challenge #336. So I approached it the same way; except, instead of using a white background, I used a patterned overlay.

To me,  this looks like a wall of ceramic tiles.

Post Script:

Looks like I got the tangle wrong.  I started out doing it correctly — I think, but I kept changing things around until I ended up with something that is either totally off, or is what some people would call a "variation."

Question About Comments

First, I would like to say I appreciate and welcome all your comments.

I would like to comment on other peoples work, but if the site is hosted on blogspot, I can't. I have a Google account, and I have tried logging in and then trying to post, but that does not work. I have tried posting as anonymous, but that does not work either. In fact, short of opening up my own blogspot account, I have tried everything I can think of and nothing works.  If anybody can tell me what I might be doing wrong, it would be appreciated.
