New Mandalas in iOrnament

I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on the beta version of the upcoming update of iOrnament Pro (thank you J├╝rgen Richter-Gebert!). There are lots of new brushes to create metallic textures, dots, glitter, and more. If you are interested in learning to draw mandalas in iOrnament and Procreate, check out this class: Mandalas in iOrnament and Procreate.

Here are my latest mandalas.
