Made some progress here, and I have used up 8 out of total 16 colors. Thoughts?

Got my sketch done, starting to block in basic shapes. I like how the palette turned out, but I might have to add another shade or two depending on how it turns out. It's also a bit big, so I'll probably scale it down once the shapes are blocked in.

The main problem for me is the craters, they just seem very flat and aren't the quality I'd expect from a Mrmo piece.

@skamocore, that's probably wip.
@Mrmo, I think those things on the left astronaut's backback should be wider than those of right one'.

A fast entry, Starting a challenge piece on sunday wasn't such a great idea.
Anyway I had fun on it and tried to improve my banding issues.
