Studying graphic design

Q: I am a student and I want to make a career in graphic designing. Is it permissable? I have searched it on the internet and some say that it is haram to draw any living thing and some are saying that you are drawing without the intention of being equal to Allah. Some are saying it is not a real image, it is just a graphic in the form of rays on your screen. I am extremely confused.

A: Drawing a figure of a living thing is haraam and forbidden irrespective of your intention.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
