Bronx Cheer Zentangle | How To Draw Zentangles

It doesn’t take a lot to realize that the Bronx Cheer and the Bronx Spear zentangles are based on raspberries.

Although the final Bronx Cheer tangle looks pretty complex, it’s just a collection of circles.

So anyone can draw the Bronx Cheer.

Let’s take a look at how to draw the Bronx Cheer together!

Step 1

Start by drawing a small circle close to the center of your paper.

Step 2

Draw a smaller circle inside the first one, slightly towards one of the edges.

This will be the highlight of the berry.

Step 3

Fill your first berry with a solid color.

Normally zentangles are drawn in black.

But since this pattern represents a raspberry, you could draw this pattern in red as well.

Step 4

Keep drawing more small circles next to each other to give a shape to your raspberry.

It’s ok if some of them overlap a little or if there is a small amount of space between them. That give is a more natural look.

Step 5

Draw two thin lines from the top of the raspberry for the stem.

What do you need for drawing zentangles?

The best thing about zentangle art is that you don’t need much to get started.

The only supplies you need to start drawing your first zentangle are:

  • A pen with black ink: a pen with a fine-tip will make it easier to draw more complicated and detailed patterns. The Sakura Pigma Micron fineliner works great for this.
  • Paper: any paper will do when starting out. But if you want to store your zentangles or put them on display, you might want to invest in better quality paper such as these bristol artist tiles.
  • Pencil: pencils are often used to sketch complicated patterns before inking them. Make sure to use a sharp pencil or a mechanical pencil.

How to draw zentangles

Drawing a zentangle is super easy and only requires three simple steps.

Step 1: Draw a square

Start by drawing the outer edges of your zentangle.

This can really be any shape you want.

But if this is your first zentangle, I recommend you stick to a simple square or rectangle.

Step 2: Divide the square in 4

Draw two lines to divide your square in 4 sections.

You can draw the two diagonals or draw two curved lines like I did below.

As you become more experienced, you might want to divide your zentangle in more sections.

Step 3: Fill each section with a pattern

Fill in each of the sections with a different pattern.

You can come up with your own patterns, or try one of the patterns from the list below.
