Weekly Challenge #89: UMT v. IX: "Sankegg"

My first two attempts for this tangle , although I have it in my "library of patterns" I never used it before . I'm not happy with the second drawing,  a bit crowded , but I like some of the variation and where they might go. More latter ..









Introducing Prop my new-old pattern



I had some problems with this pattern- that is with getting the angles  right , I wanted symmetry, so I had to find my own way of  drawing it .I used a triangular grid for finding out which triangles work best -big or small ,for easy  freehand symmetrical Sankegg pattern..

  2. Ooooo, it looks so much easier with the little equilateral triangle in the middle. Great tip.
    I love your first drawing, btw.

  3. Wow, both of these are stunning; I particularly love the first one - simple yet not... I just posted my own "deconstruction" also using a center triangle but yours is so much neater. Thanks.

  4. Both of these are great! Love the tip on the graph paper. The first one really blows me away--very reminiscent of MC Escher.

  6. Wow, you did a great job. I haven't tried it yet. The one with the colors is my favorite. The colors and the cone shapes just a great variation of the tangle Sankegg. The fist two tiles are beautiful too. I think you really are a specialist in making Sankegg.

    GREAT :)

  9. These are beautifully done. I especially like the shading on the first one, and your use of color in the third.

  10. I can tell that you liked this one too! I love how sankegg is the star in each of your pieces. In the first I am really intrigued by the bottom outlined and almost knotted area...it is my favorite variation so far, but that is not saying that I love all that you have done with sankegg!
