Generating models for papers

Hi everyone.
I want to generate  a model for my paper. I know what I want to draw (using a pencil on the paper) but have not found a good way to make it electronic and put colors.  Do not like powerpoint or paint. have not tried photoshop to draw. Any suggestions?
My model includes a cell with water channels and proteins moving in and out of nucleus (of course), change in water chanel expression in response to infection etc.
Thanks, in advance.

 My favorite was Macromedia

 My favorite was Macromedia Freehand for drawing, but I don't think it is available anymore. I have moved onto Adobe Illustrator, which isn't as intuitive, but it gets the job done. It has much more functionality than Powerpoint for drawing; of course, "drawing" with a mouse or touchpad is always more difficult than by hand! Photoshop is much more difficult to draw with, in my opinion.

 I used to use Canvas for all

 I used to use Canvas for all of my computer drawing needs.  I haven't tried Illustrator but I have started to learn Inkscape, which is a freeware solution.  My work didn't want to give me Illustrator because it's so expensive and we didn't have Canvas.
