Basics of Mandala Art:-

To draw mandala art there are some basic designs which can be used I will explain few of them.


Most commonly and easy to use design that goes well in all types of mandala art. Just take your marker and hold it tight in one place and your perfect dot is ready. That is my trick to make a perfect small dot. You should try it once.


Almost all mandalas are incomplete without lines. The basic lines is heart of mandala. Drawing a perfect line without scale is not easy so it’s better you draw it with a pencil and then use marker over it.


Spirals are tricky designs that mostly don’t come out evenly so again try it with pencil first before your draw it with a marker. These look great when done perfectly and neatly.

Geometric pic:-

You can use any geometric shape like circles, triangles, square, rhombus, etc. for your mandala art. You can mix match these and it looks really amazing in all mandala designs.


Now again mandala is incomplete without bumps also. Create any bump be it circular, elliptical but it should be of same width almost so that neither of them looks odd and bad.

Tomb Petals:-

Tomb petal is a design of petal given a tomb shape. A trick to make this perfectly is make a line in between and then draw a petal.

Leaves and Veins:-

A vein along with leaves looks amazing in most designs. Any leaf shape can be used to make this design. And similarly, veins can be of any design be it spiral or ring shaped.

Heart and Swirl Heart:-

A basic heart that most people know how to draw can also be used in mandala art.
