I want to submit a paper and the only thing that's left to do is to add some graphics. My deadline is on Wednesday/Thursday.

What I want to do is some basic curve/plane drawings. Here is an image:

enter image description here

I checked out the post about the big software list for drawings http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/1985/software-for-drawing-geometry-diagrams and I tried out TikZ but I don't really know in which direction I should go or which packages I should choose...

Would another software be more helpful for my needs or can you recommend some easy to handle packages for TikZ?

Welcome to TeX.SX. Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. –  Claudio Fiandrino Mar 3 '13 at 11:59

Given the deadline and the nature of your diagrams, I would not use TiKz this time. Geogebra and friends can be useful if you think you'll be able to express your graphics algebraically, but what I see is more a "freehand" drawing. I would go for inkscape, exporting to latex (or even tikz) in order to typeset the labels and formulae in a style consistent with the rest of the paper. –  JLDiaz Mar 3 '13 at 12:29
