There would be no problem with drawing or painting. Such an art is a valued talent and indeed must be appreciated.  

A problem would arise if:

1. You are making full sculptures of humans or animals. If it is something that has a "soul", then it is not permitted to make a sculpture of it. 

2. It is a promoting of anything that represents any deviancy, immorality, or anything un-Islamic.

And Allah knows best.
