Spanish to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary
Spanish term or phrase:dibujante
Text about art, i.e., "dibujante e ilustrador" or "pintor y gran dibujante". Neither "drawer" nor "sketcher" sound quite right to me in this context (is it just me??), so I was thinking of "sketch artist" but that sounds too much like police work. We're not talking about "draftsman" either, as it's not technical.
I was looking for something specific that transmitted the idea of drawing, but maybe there just isn't a better way of saying this. "Artist" is probably good enough in this context. Thanks for all the suggestions. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
As I went along through this translation, I began to run across dozens of web sites in English referring to people who were skilled at drawing as "draftsmen." Here's only one example: Leonardo da Vinci: Master Draftsman
Section of museum site dedicated to an exhibit of Leonardo's drawings http://www.education-world.com/awards/2003/r0403-01.shtml
I have corrected the glossary to reflect this term.

Explanation: Yes, I know that this is probably not what is meant. I just offer it as another possibility that may work in the context. Most likely, the option "artist and illustrator" offered by others is the best choice.
