I was trying out cross hatching in Illustrator and this is what I came up with. It is a very slow and fiddly way to work but I quite like how she turned out. I feel sure there must be a better way to do cross hatching though!
Have been trying out several backgrounds that were all too noisy and confusing which is why she has been languishing in my to-finish-off-at-some-point folder for so long. I finally decided to just put her on the site, maybe I’ll come back to her and do a background if I have inspiration!
