Sketchbook Art Ideas – Zentangle, 3D Gems, and Glowing Jellyfish

I can’t seem to make up my mind! I’ve tried to pick a niche, but my Geminian flaky mind wants to try everything. πŸ˜„ Hence, this post is a collection of artworks I’ve made over the past few months. Zentangles on days when I have just enough time to pick up a pen, gemstones when I want to practice 3D art, and graphic markers on days I do art with my little one. Enjoy!

I have 4 sketchbooks that I actively use, depending on my whimsiness and ideas floating in my head.

I find joy in drawing patterns. Sakura roll gel pens are my favorite to draw these white pen illustrations and zentangle art.

Inspired by a reel on instagram by @darkestnightofoctober, I tried out glowing jellyfish with Graphic markers – bringing alive this bookmark with sea creature.

Another graphic marker artwork. My husband had gifted me 3 sets of graphic markers on my birthday a few years ago. I barely got a chance to use them, so this year I have made a goal to draw with marker pens as much as possible. I loved how the Koi fish turned out, the only thing I liked about this work. 🀣 I tried to give the bubbles a 3D effect but was only partially successful.

And here’s my favorite thing to draw – zentangle gems. Some colors work well, and others make me struggle to give them a 3D pop out look.
