But these 3 dimensional art forms are categorized under the plastic arts. Drawing is a visual art and is created by the draftsman. The main tools are pencils, pen, brush, color pencils etc with the inclusion of the recent digital tools as well. Painting involves the use of colors and is used in conjunction with drawing. Printmaking involves the transfer of images to a two dimensional surface and the digital techniques simplify the whole process.
