4-Headed Martians

My first tangle let loose in the wild...

 

I think the inspiration for this very simple tangle came from looking at stick figure comics, believe it or not.. It starts simply with two crossed lines, perpendicular to each other, then add circles to each end (the stick figure head), two dots for eyes, antennae, and then what the Zentangle folks call "auras" or outlines around the shape.. most of the time for this I use two of them. Placement? You can fill an entire area with these or use wide open spaces in between, or lay them out in a row, or overlap them here and there...

 

For an example of this in action see my blog post:
