    Artistic drawing, which was previously limited to the use of paper and pencil, can now be expressed to the maximum of creativity with some interactive online programs that provide a whole series of tools for drawing on the PC, even professional ones. Drawing on the PC is not only a hobby or an artistic activity but it can also be useful for creating diagrams or for studying problems to be solved at work such as when scribbling with the pen on a sheet of paper to summarize the data.
