Astronomy sketches as entry for charcoal sketching

Hi all,

during the past years, I started chalk and charcoal sketches for astronomy targets (mainly the moon).

Here are some of them.

Best Regards

The shape and dimension you achieved with the moon is magnificent. The curvatures gives the impression of the roundness of the moon on the left, when facing the drawing.

Real sense of space and depth.

Thank you for sharing.

Impressive work!

Done installing the nerf bars I got from aries automotive. It's so easy and it looks great.
