Diva's Challenge #286: Straight to It; and belated Diva's Challenge #285: Relax, bro

This week the Diva's challenge is to ONLY use straight lines.  
Either use all straight line tangles, or try using a curvy 
lined tangle, but with straight lines - for example, 
what would crescent moon look like if it was all straight?

I decided to take a tile I had done previously with all 
curved line tangles, and convert it to straight lines. 

This was the original tile:
I did this one first:
but wasn't totally satisfied with it; don't know why.
So  then I did this one:
After I finished it, I realized that I had inadvertently changed 
the direction of some of the line work. Can you find it?
I never posted my Diva challenge for last week.
The challenge was to just relax and tangle; 
tangle as if we weren’t showing it to anyone. 

I started out by penciling a string randomly,
without looking. Then I filled the sections with 
some of my go-to tangles, whatever seemed to fit 
the space. The leftover sections that were too small
for full tangles I just auraed. Then some shading, 
and, Voila!

Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself.
