Sketch of Messier 51 The WhirlPool Galaxy

Here is a sketch of Messier 51, the WhirlPool Galaxy. Not thrilled with it but I haven't sketched much lately so here is this one. It is based on some observations through my 20' and some images taken in astro-photography using a video cam. I didn't have much time to work the sketch, about 3o minutes and with the detail that was evident, I should have really taken my time, done this in quadrants but I was just to excited.
