I love using crosshatching techniques when drawing and sketching.... but it is often a very tedious and time-consuming task, so I've made a couple of cross-hatching brushes for use in GIMP to make life a little easier :)

:bulletorange:Some quick tips when using crosshatching:
-Use the 'X' key to switch between your foreground and background colour to get nice texture in your work;
-In the Dynamic menu of your paintbrush select the Dynamics Preset 'Pencil Generic' to get a more realistic feel into your brushstroke. Save it as a Brush setting so you can come back to it any time.

********************************************************************************
:bulletorange: This download includes 2 animated GIMP brushes ('CROSSHATCHING A.gih' and 'CROSSHATCHING B.gih' ) for use with Gimp (www.gimp.org)

:bulletorange: Install Instructions:
- Download the zipped folder to your computer.
- Extract using un-zipping software of your choice (7-Zip is free and very good and is available at www.7-zip.org)
- Put the files 'CROSSHATCHING A.gih' and 'CROSSHATCHING B.gih' into your GIMP brushes install directory .......... 'C:Users/Administrator/.gimp-2.8/brushes'
-Start GIMP and choose a paintbrush from your Brush selection menu, and select either of the 2 brushes named 'CROSSHATCHING A' and 'CROSSHATCHING B' ('A' is softer and more scratchy; while 'B' is bolder)
- Choose any colour you want and start painting!

:bulletorange: These brushes and made freely available for GIMP users....that means you can use them in both personal/commercial work. Have fun!
