We see here that a simple outline sketch may have it's own appeal.

Your sketch clearly shows how craters develop great relief closer to the sunset terminator as the shadows lengthen and the bright rays stand out best in the absence of shadows at high sun near the western limb.
Very nice minimal capture.
