Goodmorning Voyager75,
I'm not a lunar expert, but like someone once said..."I JUST KNOW WHAT I LIKE!", and I like, no , I love this! There's a whole lot of 'musiume quality' art work in this forum, and I enjoy them, and strive to improve with each movement of my own pencile. But as soon as I saw your' sketch it just struck some kind of cord deep down within me, this is a SKETCH! Some love Monet, others Picaso, or Charles Shultz, and I love this...thankyou for the time you took to create it, and for shairing. Please keep them comming, I, for one am a fan. :goodjob:
Clearskys, and many of them,
Dave

Fine sketch! I like the shading (I have always difficulties with that).

An excellent observation of Mare Humorum and Gassendi. You have captured Gassendi and surrounding region very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Dear Voyager,

your sketching technique is different form mine ond other here. That is interesting: That we can render the monn in such a lot of different ways.
