    Default drawn of lines/ was drawn of lines

    Hi,
    I would like to know what kind of this structure in the following sentence:
    In this film, for the first time, a character drawn of lines seemed to live and breathe on the screen.
    Can I rewrite the sentence like this as follows without difference in meaning?
    In this film, for the first time, a character was drawn of lines seemed to live and breathe on the screen.
    (If you need more contact, please see the passage in the middle of the page: http://d.violet.vn/uploads/resources...93/preview.swf)

    No. You could write "that/which was drawn".

    I think in this case "drawn of lines" is an appositive and therefore I have to use that/which was drawn in the sentence as you suggested.
    Am I right?
