  1. Hi Matt …… I really enjoyed the various textures you created …. Great job!!! I am just wondering how many different textures you can think of and would this be a good subject for another class. Hope this is not to simplistic of a question. As always, you did a fantastic job.

    • Hi Jianyu,

      Yes, whenever the lines cross over, it is considered cross hatching. Allowing the lines to flow over the form, meaning that they’ll curve slightly, will help to communicate the form of the subject as well as develop the value.
