    Rendering in visual art and technical drawing means the process of creating, shading and texturing of an image, especially a photorealistic one. It can also be used to describe the quality of execution of that process. This is synonymous with illustrating.

    Another common use for the term, is to cut an object from a background.

    The emphasis of the term is on the correct reproduction of light-and-shadow and the surface properties of the depicted objects, not on the emotional impact, composition, or other more generic qualities. Unsurprisingly, most often it is used in relation to the more exacting, meticulous techniques like pencil or airbrush.

    In an artistic rendering visual information is interpreted by the artist and displayed accordingly using the chosen medium. The non-photorealistic rendering area of computer graphics develops tools and techniques to enable interpretive rendering in digital media.

    Definitions of render on the Web:

    * cause to become; "The shot rendered her immobile"
    * supply: give something useful or necessary to; "We provided the room with an electrical heater"
    * give or supply; "The cow brings in 5 liters of milk"; "This year's crop yielded 1,000 bushels of corn"; "The estate renders some revenue for the family"
    * pass down; "render a verdict"; "deliver a judgment"
    * make over as a return; "They had to render the estate"
    * give back; "render money"
    * hand over: to surrender someone or something to another; "the guard delivered the criminal to the police"; "render up the prisoners"; "render the town to the enemy"; "fork over the money"
    * picture: show in, or as in, a picture; "This scene depicts country life"; "the face of the child is rendered with much tenderness in this painting"
    * coat with plastic or cement; "render the brick walls in the den"
    * give: bestow; "give homage"; "render thanks"
    * translate: restate (words) from one language into another language; "I have to translate when my in-laws from Austria visit the U.S."; "Can you interpret the speech of the visiting dignitaries?"; "She rendered the French poem into English"; "He translates for the U.N."
    * a substance similar to stucco but exclusively applied to masonry walls

    If you wish to ignore Gouravs pasted defination, then I will answer.
    Simply, in a piece of art, usually signatures in our community recently, a render is an image that provides the lighting and texture for the rest of the art to surround and revolve itself around. For example you usually see dark colored sigs with dark figures/renders. So if you see a character in a sig, you can classify that as a render.
