6 clues for hatching idea

Generally, when you are required to draw a line pattern without any reference picture, it would be a blank in your mind. I believe that many people can't handle it immediately. At this time, don't panic, let us clam down. As long as you have a head, I believe that you can come up with the most basic and simple patterns. First, all complex things must be composed of the simplest things. So you list the possibilities of several line changes first.

Width-Thickness, Uneven, Thinness…

Length-Long, Short, Continuity, Intermittent…

Direction-Horizontal, Vertical, Crooked, Pitched…

Visibility-Clear, Blur…

Square and circle-Sharp, Smooth…

Density-Loose, Dense…

In the beginning, you might only be able to draw one or two variations of lines. As you try to blend many different changes, the patterns would be multiple and more!
