Crosshatch Technique

I split the image into 4 greys (excluding white) using image trace, stacked them and set them to fill with a 0.7mm line interval. Each progressively dark layer has a different scan angle which forms the pattern (-45, 45, 90, 0).

Me, being from the print world, I can identify with using different angles for different tones of CMYK!

It looks fine. I also like to use the 45 degree crosshatch a lot, it can be used for many effects. But with too much power, the “diamonds” can break off, a little experimentation is required.

Wow, that looks amazing! The use of different scan angles to form a pattern is really creative. Can you tell me more about the process you used to create this image?
