The amount of colour in this image and the fact that it is applied with a brush might preclude it from being categorised as a drawing. On the other hand, the images are represented wholly by a network of lines, one definition of drawing. Brush lines tend like the lines in this drawing to be softer than pen lines and to taper to a point.
