I want to help design a "sandpark" MMO. Optional interactive story with quests and deeply characterized NPCs, plus sandbox elements like player-craftable housing and lots of other crafting. If you are starting a design of this type, please PM me. I also love pet-breeding games.

For this kind of thing you probably want to use a painting-like approach. First turn off lines, so you are drawing only blobs of color. Then use the eyedropper to grab the color that is most prevalent in the moon rock. Draw some sand dune/hill shapes with that. Now take a darker color and put that wherever shadows are. And take a lighter color and put it wherever highlights are. For greater realism, do a second level of both shadows and highlights.
Edit: aha I knew I had an example of this technique somewhere. Here is my Inkscape rendition of the Mona Lisa. I enlarged it so you could see the color areas better, it's not supposed to be displayed anywhere near this large.
