What are the basics to sketching does anyone know ?
I sketched my son , and it looks nice but someone told me its more of a drawing than a sketch
A sketch is a fast drawing. It doesn't have as much structure as a drawing. It also usually has undefined borders and can typically look messy. Sometimes features are undefined or left out completely.
my understanding is that a sketch is typically defined by the style of line used, rather than using solid defined lines, a sketch will use a lot of short, quick lines to define an edge in this way a sketch can easily be refined and the lines moved slightly by thickening them in one direction or another.
I've been an artist for approximately 7 years, and the difference between a sketch is that a sketch is basically a precursor to a drawing. A sketch is quicker and is more focused on generalized details that are used later when you start the actual drawing. As such, a sketch is usually sloppier than a drawing, and uses short strokes rather than the longer strokes of drawings. As for the person saying your sketch looking more like a drawing than a sketch, I would take that as a compliment.
