Sketched Cross has a rough, hand made aesthetic, composed in black and white, lending it a more serious look. The cross is made of uneven, thick black lines that have a sketched look. The form of the lines also gives the sense of wood grain, adding to the roughness of the image. Behind the cross, a light grey shadow falls on the white background down and to the left. Below the cross, a cluster of straight, roughly drawn dashes create the appearance of rough ground or wild grass surrounding the cross.
