Programs for schematic drawings of proteins?

I am looking for programs that can draw schematic drawings of protein 
structures. I am interested in the following two types of drawings:

	(1) schematic representation of the [main chain] hydrogen bonding 
pattern (based on known 3D structure)

	(2) schematic representation of the domain structure and 
disulfide bonding pattern, using a chain of several circles, each circle 
representing a residue, and the type of the residue written in the 
circle. This chain of circles is folded in 2D to approximately represent 
the domain structure and the disulfide bonding pattern.

Such drawings often appear in journals but I don't know any program that 
can easily draw such things. (As to the hydrogen bonding pattern, I heard 
of a program called HERA but I have no idea how to get it.)

Anyone can help?
