Hatching (hachure in French) is an artistic technique used to create tonal or shading effects by drawing (or painting or scribing) closely spaced parallel lines.
Art 101 I prefer hatching over cross hatching. Cross hatching always seems to look sloppy to me, no matter how clean or evenly spaced the lines are. I am glad woot didn't limit this derby to cross hatching only because then I wouldn't have an urge to partake, missing out on all the fun.
You are just fine here, and you did a wonderful job! Hatching > Cross hatching
