    Wip cratered, rocky moon

    Okay, so I've been attempting to create a moon image, with lots of impact craters on its surface, but I've been unable to create a result I'm happy with. I feel like I'm starting to get close, but I have a few issues that I've been unable to work around so far.

    The majority of this moon was made by following Ascension's planet-making tutorial.

    After rendering the clouds, I used the eye candy water drops filter to create a lot of circles, and use stylize->glowing edges to brighten the ridges before rendering the difference clouds. However, the water drops filter creates circles that are too large and too even, and I'm wondering if anyone here might have any suggestions on a method to use that doesn't involve the water drops filter.

    I found a few tutorials on craters in various places, but they all seem to require a little bit of hand-drawing talent that I don't possess
