Nice to see a moon sketch again! Your sketch gives a good 3d- illusion.

Beautiful sketch. Your style reminds me of a moondrawing in an old book (and that's a positive thing!).

S1mas,

That is a very well captured sketch of a complex crater caught in good light with long shadows. Very nice. :bow: :rainbow: :cool:

Frank :)
