    I really like little crosshatchy stuff! I hate to see it go! But I can’t really argue with your analysis overall.

    Oh, cross-hatching as a technique is great, but it has to be used properly. Which it was most emphatically NOT, in the first pass. It’s one of those things that seems really simple when you see it done well, but is actually fairly difficult to do properly. A great technique, though.
