I've been using graph paper, a pencil and eraser. As a result, my deckplans always look homegrown as opposed to professional.

What about you? What do you use?

I sometimes start with a pencil sketch, but the finished product is done with MsPaint.

Black lines over a light blue grid print out as black over light grey.

Scale is 1 pixel per 6 inches. Grid is every 10 pixels; or 5-foot by 5-foot squares.

I'm not an artist. My training is in mechanical and architectural drafting. 6 years in the Navy also gives me a little perspective on shipboard layouts.

Used to use Illustrator, I now use Serif Drawplus (cheaper and much easier to use with all the features I need).

mspaint. looks a little 1980's, but hey, the real action is in the mind.
