I love the moon
I'm Wiccan and I go out into the full moon and do rites to my goddess there ^.^
And yes I agree the moon is very magical

The way I'd personally draw the moon would be to do a dark background, but leave a circular shaped lighter area and then shade in the shadows of the moon.
Maybe google image the full moon to see what it looks like with the shading.

I've done a moon in color by taking an image already made and taking a blue color and making the transparency at around 20 and putting the brush on the fuzzy mode and then drawing it in a circle and then adding a glow around it.

To do it in a sketch I'd suggest doing a circle and then maybe using a kneaded eraser around it to give it a glow effect.



(like the one they did in this image)
