Struggling With Yincut

Yincut is one of tangle patterns. I love how it looks when it's done well. Reminds me of a nice, fluffy pillow. Today I set out to learn how to do it. I am not the best person for following instructions. I am not patient enough, so I rush through the process of learning. Not surprisingly, I messed up the pattern just moments into starting. Then I messed up again, but I just kept going. It started going better as I went on, but the end result did not look much like what I set out to create. I didn't want to give up on the creation, so I added some colors and in the end I think it works fine as an abstract. I call it Pillow Fight:

For the second attempt I used a different set of instructions. I did much better following the instructions and what I got was what I expected to get. I made a curtain out of it. The whole image looks like this:

This one I named Behind the Curtain.

It will take a lot more work to master that first variation of Yincut, but that's OK, it just means more drawing time for me.
