It looks like a few of us all had the same thought last night "Well there's nothing else to view but the moon, so let's sketch the moon!".  Here is my take on Mare Imbrium.

I really like your sketch, especially the rays of the large crater are very impressive. Well done for your first lunar sketch waytogo.gif

Thanks,  The rays were actually quite difficult as I laid down a base color of grey and had to "draw" them in with the edge of my eraser.  I wasn't able to plot the individual rays precisely, I just did a bunch until it felt right.

Man, that’s solid! I haven’t been brave enough to attempt the moon yet!

 

Great job!
