Nice work Ralph. Nice and tight area there, jam packed with detail.

If I could be so bold to make a suggestion, you might like to look into using some softer graphite pencils, or even black pencils like the Stedler 'EE'. These will give a much stronger dark/black shading. There's no pussy-footing with the Moon's shadows. It's either black or black... You might find using such pencils a challenge at first. These 6B, 7B and even 8B graphites smudge very easily. The 'EE' is wicked black in comparison - no sheen at all compared to graphite.

Alex.
