Sounds like you want to use the shapes and symbols in Powerpoint. You can also make flow charts in word almost the same way....

If I understand your question right that you want to deploy layout and plan designs into computer. I think from my experience you might need to learn more about the following softwares:

Autocad: it allows you to draw architectural/ structural layouts or schemes by lines- shapes and putting dimensions (it has the snap- array and other functions to utilize the process).

3d studio max: drawing 3d objects and adding lights and materials using different renders like vray or corona.

Rihno: a more advanced software for organic shapes.

I might advice you also to learn photoshop and illustrator.

You might be interested in a career like architecture. It is a creative career that will open up many doors for you being an architect or designer requires you to read in different fields (design thinking/psychology/ humanities/ environmental design/ how to create concepts...etc.)

Hope that helps you.

I am not 100% sure I understand your question but I am going on the following understanding, I believe you are looking into doing background art via a computer.

If you have an ipad, procreate is widely being used for art.

The answer is largely budget dependent. If you are on a budget, I would look into drawing tablets and affordable software like clip studio. There are a number of free programs available like Krita . For best results, work through the tutorials that they provide for free online.

If you have access to, or have the budget for it, Wacom graphic tablets are easier to use. Adobe Photoshop is available on a subscription basis.

The real answer is to not be tied to any computer version but focus on learning the skills of layouts/backgrounds. The skills for these are developed over time and you can get a lot of experience using pencil, colored pencils, pen, paint and paper. Computer tools have a tendency to change over time. By dealing with the physical limits and not being able to zoom in and out, you can focus on the skills required for layout and then decide on digital tools later.

A last bit on this. There are some layout artists on youtube that you can learn from or get ideas on the occupation itself.

David recommends the following next steps:

Focus on the layout artist skills not technology
Follow layout artist on twitch, youtube and instagram (find ones that appeal to you)
