Criss-Cross shadows

I don't really like this image much, but use your imagination to see what you might be able to do with this technique. (with a better starting model, and by adjusting the size, and color and transparency of the cross hatching)

The image base SketchUp image is washed out a bit (intentionally) so that the light and dark hatch patterns will be more visible and the sun is turned off (actually the sun intensity is set to 0).

White patterns are drawn where the sun would shine, and dark patters are drawn on areas which would be in shadows.

These and other settings, can be used to adjust the image until you like it.

Keep your eyes open for more information on NprTools.
