Practicing line detailing and hatching

Hi everybody, I am @sketching and today I played around with practicing some hatching/line detailing of a few random faces. I have always liked the look of drawings with a bunch of crosshatching and think it looks amazing when it's done well, but never known how to do it myself. I have watched videos recently of a few different artists drawing really nicely with this sort of technique, like Peter Han, that inspired me to give it a try. As of now, I am doing it somewhat aimlessly, just discovering what looks good to me. I will definitely do more practice on this sort of thing in the future.

The hatching takes a lot of patience but puts some life into the face.
