QUILL008 is a thicker lined pattern we like to call black. This pattern has a quill pen characteristics to it and extends diagonally to the left across the selected source image.  This Action is not unlike QUILL004 which has the same properties but leans to the right, this allows both Actions to be layered over each other to create a crosshatching effect (not shown). Once the pattern is generated the Action applies some layer effects to the pattern so that it reacts to the contrast areas in the source image, wherever the source image is lightest will cause the lines in the pattern to become thinner or disappear altogether. The final result is a vector shape which has the stronger characteristics of the source image etched into the vector pattern, the final step is to save the vector path data into a Smart Object where the designer can further modify the vector node points by hand or export the paths to edit within Illustrator.  Please visit our tutorial section for additional posts on recreating popular forms of graphic art and for tips and tricks on who to combine Stipplr Actions.
