    Hi everybody,

    I'm not quite sure if the translation for this compound word is "dibujante".
    It refers to the person who draws a sketch based on the description that someone makes about another person...

    It would be nice if you could help me,

    Thanks!!

    Retratista refers specifically to the drawing of a person.

    Retrato - Imagen de una persona dibujada a partir de los rasgos físicos que ofrece quien la conoce o la ha visto.

    Hola

    Si te entiendo bien, sí, se dice sketch artist. Tal dibujo (en el mundo policial) se llama un "artists impression".

    "Police have issued an artist's impression of the wanted man".

    Cheers

    Oops...you wanted the Spanish translation. Sorry.

    Yo diría un dibujante de retratos robot. Un ejemplo sacado un periódico: "La Guardia Civil ha distribuido por Torreblanca un retrato robot del supuesto etarra elaborado por diferentes testigos ........"
