A very simple question. What would you consider the image above to be? A sketch or drawing and why?
In specific terms I think it's a sketch. A drawing is a more ruled, formal graphic representation. Sketch implies something quick and freehanded. They can be used interchangeably, however. That is a nice sketch you have.
why? does it matter?
a sketch is a type of drawing.
sketches seem to convey to me, loose ideas yet to be formalized and drawings indicate resolved thoughts...just me.
What does it mean to you? (nice shading, btw)
A drawing--is more Final, a sketch is more coneptual
the aBOVE IS A SKETCH
It is a drawing. A Sketch seeks to capture solely relying on the inherent essence of the object. A Drawing seeks detail, precision. It seeks to reproduce, not interpret.
a sketch is a type of drawing, however it depends on the student.
if that took you more than 15 minutes, and it represents your absolute best effort, i'd probably consider it a drawing if i was your instructor. however, because i assume you could do better just based on what i read from your hand [which seems to imply it was completed in a short time] i'd say its a sketch. in all honesty, a really great presentation drawing should take you at least a day by itself. this is not such an example.
its a sketch of a drawing.
Or a drawing of a sketch.....whoa!
thanks for the comments. i'm just curious of the differences between the usage of the two terms. but i see it as a sketch on my sketch pad. however if this was done in watercolor, oil or gouache with the same quality and competition, one could argue that it is a drawing.
I think it's a picture
sketch. i have my reasons.
Semantics. It doesn't matter. Call it what you want to call it. I call it Thomas.
it's a sketch.
