I've tried a gazillion variations of the RewriteRule and am now trying the

You need to use RewriteRule, Redirect has nothing to do with RewriteCond.
Something like the following should be enough:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule \.(gif|jpe?g|png|bmp)$ /images/sketches/no_sketch.jpg [NC,L]

I also usually recommend not using the <IfModule> directive. If you want
this to work, you probably want the server to show an error if the rewrite
module isn't loaded rather than ignore the configuration.
