Excellent sketch. Crater Plato, I'm pretty sure. Love those spiky shadows on the crater floor.

In the meantime, what does everyone spray on their sketches to keep the dust from smearing?
I reduce the darkening you saw by doing two things:
  1. I put the pastel on really thick! Yes, it's messy.
  2. I use Boyle "Matt Spray Finishing Sealer" which is an aerosol. I spray it on in about 5 very light coats, allowing to dry for 5 mins or so in between coats.
