This week, we’re giving our thoughts on what separates an artist’s work from their sketch.

The main source of difference between art and sketch is the fact that a professional sketch is based on the drawing technique and not the overall idea. It’s a good practice to have a good feel for your drawing before you start to create anything, so make your drawings and concepts of what you are thinking when you sketch. The result will probably be different, but at least you’ll have a better idea what your subject will look like.
2. The importance of color
Sometimes you need a little more, if not more, depth; it’s really a matter of knowing how to paint in a correct manner and in a specific shade.
3. The importance of the line, and how to draw lines with color
I’ve always believed to draw a great line, it’s the main cause of good art. I see most artists are a little lazy. I’m not saying you should just draw a line – that would be lazy (though technically it is your responsibility to do it), but a good line is the key element to drawing a well painted picture of something.
4. The importance of the composition
I have heard it from some art lovers that composition is more important than the actual drawing. That’s because the idea that you want your artworks to be pleasing to a viewer, or to bring them some pleasure, is more important than the actual drawing or drawing the idea out.
5. The importance of detail
I mean, there are all these details, but what happens if I take something that looks awesome and completely ignore those details? It’s a great waste of time.
There are so many more ways than I can think of. The main point here is to get away from the idea that a sketch is always better, or a picture that’s perfect. They are not the same, no matter if you do it in black and white, color, or color and white. Some pieces look very good in black and white, but others may be much better in color and the same. Sometimes a single line can draw both ways.
