getting more experimental with the hatching. I would love to reproduce light scapes by emitting them from a darker pattern, but that in turn demands a very consistent dark pattern with well defined edges....
Also reproducing single-tone smooth dark areas with a pattern is a challenge in general. I can't just "observe" the correct solution, as the patterns just don't exist on the reference, and my theories on which pattern to use, and which direction to chose for hatching remain inconsistent and changing. I suspect much more trial-and-error to follow.
