Mandalas in Adobe Illustrator

I’m finally getting serious about learning how to use Adobe Illustrator properly. I’ve been using it off and on for years, but never really spent the time to get good at it since it’s so vast. I’ve been watching some videos on drawing mandalas, so I decided to see if I could create one with vector shapes. It was a fun and relaxing way to spend a couple hours. Also, I feel a lot more comfortable in Illustrator now. I added some color gradients with Photoshop.
