A rough draft, or 'rough', is an initial draft of written or graphic work, intended to produce raw materials for the layout. Rough drafts are comprised of basic materials, used to assess content and form. In graphic art the method also relates to production issues, sizing, and technical aspects of the process, in which a final product has to be created in several stages. In writing, rough drafts are used as quality controls on content, often derived from original notes.
Examples of Rough Draft:
|Writing: Book drafts, pre production script drafts, story boards, notes|
Arts: Sketches, mock-ups, animation and movie story boards
