...and the answer is, 'yes. of course.'

bad computer drawings are often the result of just adjusting software parameters, hitting "render" and letting the machine calculate the "drawing". but this is really only an image, hardly a drawing at all.

good computer drawings are not "computer generated", but use different methods & software as needed to produce the desired result.

Someone with an eye who knows how to use photoshop & illustrator (for example) to alter and transform & composite their rendering & vector perspectives can easily produce the effect you are describing directly and immediately.

many illustrators use pencil-type input devices to draw "by hand" directly into their computer drawings.

don't get bogged down by thinking that hitting 'render' is the only way to produce an architectural drawing using a computer. that kind of thinking betrays a lack of understanding of the media.
because regardless of media, a good architectural drawing is always CONSTRUCTED actively by the person making it, using what tools are appropriate & available.
