I did a search on google for “cross hatch” and found this site. I like the way his lines follow the soft forms of the females body. I am going to use the technique and see what result it gives when I start drawing nudes again after the summer break.
I have a mini fold-up cycle called a Strida that I wheel through the underground/subway each day. Its amazing how blind people are when they are talking to someone on the phone, I am aware that I can hurt commuters with my bike but are they aware that I just missed putting a tyre track up their leg!
