1) your last one
2) your last one with the lighter aa colours changed to white, and darker ones to bg colour. This is the kinda shape it more or less suggests. NOT round.
3) made a round base shape without aa
4) added single colour of aa, very basic
5) added more aa but the sides do still bulge out
6) so I made the aa there darker
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Just a few suggestions, but since it's a moon, you may want to consider adding some slight shading and/or craters; right now it's looking a bit like a sun. The only thing suggesting otherwise is the dark sky.

Also, a compositional suggestion, how about having the piece set somewhere on a mountaintop with clouds weaving around the moon and mountain? Could potentially make the piece more interesting if there aren't too many of them, in which case it might come off more as cluttering up the scene (I almost went there... :yell: ) Here's an idea of what I mean. Very rough, but hopefully you get it. The palette might need reworking for this idea.

Well, I edited the form of a little mountain of mine and added some stars think it has improved.



One more thing I suck, I never was lucky to find a good tutorial and not had much practice ... The clouds, this is a problem that has always plagued me, always goes off to one side, another narrow, the nerve I would like if you had any tutorial on clouds because that is my problem.

I still had a felling that your moon looks more like sun in the sunshine,
