That's a good sketch. Getting detail like that on the terminator is difficult.

Stunning.

Hi folks, I'm overjoyed that You like it!

Andre...
I made it in 3,5h. It was very difficult, especially because I used AZ4 mount. Well... it was a little frustrating but in the end it's all worth it:)
Anyway... my back hurts until today :D

Edit//
Yes, that Was my first moon sketch I've ever made:)))))

Technique... :D
I used white watercolor crayon on black paper, something like artagain. I started drawing from the mountains at the top of the frame (on the right), first I drew all of the mountains, craters at the end:)...like a piece de resistance
