Hello moon-friends,

 

after "aprilweather" during the day, a cloudless and cold evening was offered under moderate air conditions. Today I have selected a previously disregarded crater area. Nice shadow games, but plentyDetails that have killed me after 90 minutes then ... I am also with the proportions and If you look at the craters in the atlas, they get out of hand. But that's the way it is while drawing, I can not erase and correct everything, so it stays that way. At the end I had to go back in the details between the craters and finally got the drawing "finished", before I ruin my work totally ...

 

Thanks for watching, CS Jens

really impressive, I love the way you use the charcoal, this is a technique I would like to prove but seems too much difficult

Hi Jens,

that's an impressive sketch! Well done!

I often compare my sketches with the corresponding page in the atlas and almost every time figure out that I did some mistakes regarding the crater positions. But hey, I'm doing a sketch - no photo ;)

Thanks for sharing your wonderful sketch with us.

Clear skies
