This filter will turn your image into a crosshatch drawing. The 4 crosshatch pens (2 black, 2 grey) allow you to adjust the coverage of each to fine tune the final effect to your image.*notes and tips-finer lines achieved by lowering 'Size, pixels' (try 600)-does not randomize well-the 'Color Grey Lines' control will colorize both grey pens and the grey outline.
