Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author's imaginative, conceptual ideas, or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art.
The three classical branches of art are painting, sculpture and architecture.
Yes it is the same because drawing living being full image is not permissible whether in real life or in digital 3D.
Harming people is not allowed in Islam. If it does not harm them now or in the future and you are sure that they will never object on it, then it becomes permissible.
You should try your best to get your previous pictures ( with out Hijab) and keep them away from public display. If you could not get all of them, you will not be responsible about them as you were not a Muslim when the photos were displayed. Now when you are a Muslim, it is not sin on you as it is out of your ability to remove it.
Congratulations on adorning the attire of Islam and wearing hijab. In regards to previous images of you without hijab, no, it is not considered a sin. What you are able to do is for your comfort and peace of mind, if you have access to these images, ask them to be kindly removed, and hopefully they will comply.
With prayers for your success.
The drawings claimed to be similar to the image of Imam Ali (AS) and Imam Husain (AS) are linked with some cultures in places where Muslims live. Muslims in Eastern Europe, Turkey and Iran accept these drawings because of the common culture in those places accepts drawings of divine personalities, while Muslims is the Indian sub-continent, Indonesia, Malaysia and Far East do not have such culture. Many Shia scholars in these countries do not allow such drawings. Our leading Ulama in the Hawza say that these drawings are not more than the imagination of the persons who draw it. No one is allowed to claim that such drawings are the real image of the Infallible.
Yes, it is permissible, and there would be nothing wrong with this.
And Allah knows best.
Yes, it is permissible to sketch an image depicting certain events of Karbala, through the eyes of an artist. An example for this is the creative art of Mahmoud Farshchian. If done in a right way, it would be a wonderful method in conveying many positive messages, and hence it would be a recommended and encouraged act.
However, in regards to the Ma'sumeen, or members of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.), one must be very careful in how they are drawn. To draw any of the members of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) in itself is not specifically haram, unless it is drawn in such a way that is insulting or lowering of their status.
We do not have any authentic narrations regarding exactly how they looked, so an artist will not be able to rely on anything that can be used as a basis.
It all comes down the the imagination of the artist, and how they visualise how someone would look at that time, which cannot in any way be verified. This is why some of our scholars, although do not prohibit it, they do say it is not free of problems and should be avoided.
Sadly, some images are drawn in an innapropriate way, being similar to images depicted in Churches, or images drawn of Jesus (a.s.), or drawing the Ma'soom like as if they have makeup, or thin eyebrows, or other common criticisms usually directed at these commercial pictures that we can see in the some places.
An artist is able to convey many artistic and spiritual messages beyond the facial depiction, and we must always remember that it is our duty to look beyond the physical material element of our relationship with how we can connect with them (a.s.).
With prayers for your success.

It is allowed to have such pictures on clothes, carpets, curtains, walls etc but it is Makrouh (disliked) to pray (Salah) in front of such pictures.
If it is not drawing of full body of human or animal, then it is allowed.
Muslim is not allowed to draw picture of beings with soul like human beings and animals.
If you draw part of the body, not the whole, many Ulama say that it will be permitted.
You need to either to change the drawings of the soul beings, or if it is not changeable, then get rid of it.
Yes, it is allowed to sleep in bedding with pictures of faces or characters.
