Hi moonsketchers

I work on a presentation for a workshop moonsketching at my local astronomy club. I'm looking for examples to show different sketching styles: kind of paper (white, grey, black,...), paint, pastels, pencil, carbon, stippling, digital,... So no need to be a masterpiece.

Who don't mind? Where can I find your sketches? Ofcourse your name will be mentioned in the presentation.

Thanks a lot!

I wish I had some for you Jef. I will recommend some images from Harold Hills book/portfolio of pen and ink lunar drawings using the pointelist method. To me the prospect of all the tiny dots is maddening but some like it . A nice variation on the lunar sketching theme. A prime benefit being that it reproduces well and better than typical halftone illustration.

Hi Jef, good luck with your presentation, and let us know how things went, ok? :grin:

Feel free to use my Moon Sketch Tutorial (also available in an Adobe document version) which includes a section about basic materials needed.

Thanks all for your reaction. I had a great time browsing through your lunardrawings and selected those who I liked most.
Maybe I missed it, but has anybody a completely digital sketch in his gallery?
