Moondust by MoonsongWolf Moondust by MoonsongWolf
Lunar dust is soft and fine as flour but also roughly textured on its microscopic surface. It presents a surprising danger to lunar visitors, and it reportedly smells like spent gunpowder.

Oh wow, I really love the very black-and-white look to this painting because it really has allowed you to explore texture and lighting. This immediately caught my eye as a thumbnail in my inbox, and it definitely looks even better up close! About what size of canvas is this? C:

Thank you! I'm glad that you liked it. It was fun to work mostly in black and white for a change! I'm hoping to do a few more along this theme. :)

And the size for this one is about 6" X 9". I like working small.

You're very welcome! Ooh, I'd definitely love to see more artwork  based off of this theme in the future~ 

Ah, that's interesting! I would have expected a piece with this much detail to be a lot bigger... I personally like working small as well though, so I'm glad that I'm not alone ^-^
