Do you see these beautiful, highly detailed mandalas? Perhaps you think it took me a very long time to draw and color them? And if I say that I spent about 5 minutes on each of them, you will not believe me?
Well, maybe today I can convince you.
In this course we will create a template for drawing mandalas and try it in the case! Yes, creating the template itself can take a little longer than 5 minutes. But after that, you will be able to draw any patterns with a huge amount of detail, for your own pleasure and absolutely not tire of monotonous work!
Oh yes! The template itself, ready for work - is already included in the course. You can just download it and start creating!
