Clavius out of the shadows

Lunar crater
Hartlepool, UK
14th March 2011
Drawn digitally using pencils, chalk and blenders.

I drew this at the eyepiece of my 10 inch Newtonian a with a magnification of x375 using regular pencils then redrew it indoors on the computer digitally.
Apart from the important stuff like the positioning and shape of the main craters the next thing I think is the tone of the surrounding area, trying to match the lights and darks but of course trying to simplify what you see.
