I am often amazed at some of the things that people manage to draw on a computer. When doing architectural drawings, it is pretty easy to see how it is done, though using that type of drawing software is often something that takes a lot of training. However, when it comes to art drawing, there are some options out there that work very well, and itís often astounding how well some of these creations come out when using nothing but a computer screen and a mouse. My dad often uses drawing software to make some really neat things. He is an artist anyway, so Iím not that surprised. It did take him a while to get used to the difference between using a pencil or a paint brush as apposed to using a computer mouse to draw, but he got it after a while.
He uses rather simple drawing software, but he only uses it once in a while, so that is enough for him. He often makes cute little pictures to frame and give to us as gifts, or he messes around with a rough draft of something that he wishes to commit to paint and canvas later on. My daughter uses the drawing software on her computer as well. She has our very old computer in her room for educational games, but she loves to draw with it too. The drawing software she uses is Paint.
This is been around for a long time, and hasnít really changed much. As far as software goes, it is rather simple, but she can use it to create whatever it is that she finds in her imagination. In fact, being simple is an asset in this case, as she could not learn to use anything more complicated at her age. It works for her, and for my dad as well. There is more complicated drawing software out there. These are used for projects that might have a commercial value. There are also some that generate really great looking logos and other things that one might need for their creations. That, along with the drawing software, can give anyone the tools they need to make a rather professional looking presentation of any sort right from the comfort of their own home. That certainly makes taking work home much easier for graphic designers, and also allows people who volunteer for projects the chance to spend that time at home as well.
