Mike,

Excellent sketch of an impressive crater. :bow: :cool: It looks like you used graphite pencil with pen and ink for shadows.

Frank :)

Hi Frank

Thank you! I used a 4B and 2B pencil,using fingertip to smooth on a slightly grained 110gm cartridge paper, and a permanent marker and fine line mapping pen to fill out the shadows.
