A shadow image could be seen as a drawing according to traditional criteria, because it describes a 3D situation in 2D format, as seen from a particular viewpoint, using edges, value and a kind of perspective. 

Unlike a traditional drawing, each object continually creates its own image in real time. The image has no physical substance, is not attached to its support, and can be created or destroyed instantly, without trace. The image is dependent on energy from either the sun or electricity ... and can be controlled by weather (at random) or coin operated meter (intentionally).

Unlike a traditional drawing, the image is a totally accurate representation of reality but it may not be recognizable, and is not an illusion of reality.
