Top 10 Best Animals to Draw

The Top Ten
1 Wolf The wolf (Canis lupus), also known as the gray wolf or grey wolf, is a large canine native to Eurasia and North America. More than thirty subspecies of Canis lupus have been recognized, and gray wolves, as popularly understood, comprise wild subspecies. The wolf is the largest extant member of the family Canidae. It is also distinguished from other Canis species by its less pointed ears and muzzle, as well as a shorter torso and a longer tail. The wolf is nonetheless related closely enough to smaller Canis species, such as the coyote and the golden jackal, to produce fertile hybrids with them. The banded fur of a wolf is usually mottled white, brown, gray, and black, although subspecies in the ...read more.

This animal is not only my favorite animal, but it's also my favorite thing to draw because you can have it any way you want. Anything you do to a drawing may make it unique and interesting, but when you add on to wolves, they stay beautiful and cool at the same time. Also, if you look up anime wolves, it will come up with the coolest ad dons for wolves that you will ever see like wings or magic! It's just facinating to draw for me and I absolutely love drawing them!

Iove to draw wolves I like to draw I like to draw other animals but I would have to go with the wolf because there so majestic and you can draw so many packs and so many expressions to chose from... And so loyal to each other I like to draw pictures of a wolf helping out a fellow wolf. Anyway you people that haven't voted chose what you like but remember there's always a spot here for a fellow wolf lover

The wolf is so easy to draw, its relaxing. Especially if you get proportions, and the details. its amazing! <3 Wolves are amazing animals too!

Wolves are my spirit animal and are so majestic. They seem to be hard to draw but no, it's just the fur and just takes a certain time to draw, guidelines help so much. I love to flick my pencil to draw their fur and also coloring their fur, it looks so cool.

2 Dog The dog or domestic dog (Canis familiaris or Canis lupus familiaris) is a domesticated descendant of the wolf, and is characterized by an upturning tail. The dog is derived from an ancient, extinct wolf, and the modern wolf is the dog's nearest living relative. The dog was the first species to be domesticated, by hunter–gatherers over 15,000 years ago, before the development of agriculture. Due to their long association with humans, dogs have expanded to a large number of domestic individuals and gained the ability to thrive on a starch-rich diet that would be inadequate for other canids. ...read more.

I love dogs so much, and drawing them is really fun! It is really easy to draw a dog simple, but also if you choose a more complex dog, it is even better! I definitely recommend drawing a dog for everyone!

Only thing I can draw that's on this entire list.
How pathetic am I.
I can't even draw it that well...
Well, have fun. They aren't easy always. (I can only draw the same kind of thing over and over. )

I think dog are cuddly especially Yellow labs and I have one she's the queen of the house laugh out loud!

I love drawing dogs. I have drew one with glasses and a normal one. Both of them were realistic.

3 Cat The cat (Felis catus) is a domestic species of small carnivorous mammal.
It is the only domesticated species in the family Felidae and is often referred to as the domestic cat to distinguish it from the wild members of the family. A cat can either be a house cat, a farm cat or a feral cat; the latter ranges freely and avoids human contact.

Domestic cats are valued by humans for companionship and their ability to kill rodents. About 60 cat breeds are recognized by various cat registries. ...read more.

Cats are a relatively easy to draw animal. The only difficulty on starting with this if you are a beginner is getting the body shape and legs. Because they are so flexible, it can be rather difficult to get it mastered. I suggest you start with an animal with a similar body shape but easier to memorize ( a snake for example because of there flexibility ) or even drawing out the bones in lines to master the position you will be drawing the most. Cats are still a great beginner animal and I suggest trying it out!

Warrior cats opens a whole new world of drawing cats, with different markings and colors. I just like drawing existing cats in the Warrior Cats series using the alliances page. Cats are the only animal I like to draw besides wolves, foxes and birds, but the colors like brown and tawny on some wolf drawings are not possible in real life though.

Cats are one of my favorite animals, and are really fun to draw! If you haven't read Warriors by Erin Hunter, it's about cats and I definitely recommend!

Cats are pretty much the only things on this list that I can draw
But they are pretty easy.
I love drawing cats because I have two cats. They're my favorite animal!
I also love the Warrior cat series, and it's so much fun to make my own characters!

4 Dragon A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures.

Such a majestic creature! Although they don't exist, it would be marvellous if they did. I have a spiritual connection with dragons so I voted for them.

In the past 4 years my dragon drawing skills including anatomy, detail, originality, poses, and movement went from being extremely terrible to being amazing. I love drawing them so much. I'm actually drawing one right now. It's actually a horse/dragon hybrid though, but still a dragon.

Dragons are such mystical and beautiful creatures, that drawing them is so fun and awesome in the end result! I have drawn a ton of dragons so far, and I love every single one. I love it so much, that is why I want you to try it!

I love drawing dragons because no matter how I draw them, no one can tell me I did it wrong because no one knows what they look like because they aren't real.

5 Fox Foxes are small to medium sized animals and belong to the Canidae family along with other animals such as jackals, wolves, and domestic dogs. There are 37 species of fox but only 12 are considered true Vulpes. A fox's prey is small mammals, birds, reptiles, frogs, eggs, insects, worms, fish, crabs, mollusks, fruits, berries, vegetables, seeds, fungi and carrion. Some of the best known species of fox are the fennec fox, red fox, gray fox, arctic fox, and the swift fox. Foxes are considered one of the most adaptable animals because it can live on almost every continent. Foxes range from all different colors and habitats. Foxes can be a deep red, a light tan, or white. If you are lucky enough you ...read more.

Foxes are just such beautiful animals, so why not draw them? I have drew so many foxes by now, I enjoy it more and more ever time I draw it! I honestly really think everyone should try it!

Foxes are the best thing to start on I think, because they have so many different poses and expressions. You could spend hours mastering the fox... Or simply a few minutes.

Foxes have a element of solitude, cleverness, curiosity, and playfulness that gives you so many choices of how to pose them, and are very elegant and beautiful.

They are so slender and graceful! Beautiful animals to draw, the white on their bellies also adds an interesting component to paint.

6 Horse The horse is an odd-toed, hoofed mammal of the taxonomic family Equidae whose sole major subspecies (Equus ferus caballus) is a domesticate, although wild subspecies have survived into the modern period. All subspecies, including the two extant ones, descend from the Pleistocene Equus ferus. The horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed creature, Eohippus, into the large, single-toed animal of today. Humans began domesticating horses around 4000 BC, and their domestication is believed to have been widespread by 3000 BC. Horses in the subspecies caballus are domesticated, although some domesticated populations live in the wild as feral horses. These feral ...read more.

I've always loved horses since age three. A boy horse under 4 years old is a colt, and a boy horse over 4 years old is called a stallion. A girl horse under 4 years old is a filly and one over 4 years is a mare. Horses are naturally hard to draw. I have drawn horses forever and I am now skilled at drawing one. All you have to do is get a How to draw horses book at the library and you'll be mastered in no time!

I also wish horses were number one on the list.

I am a skilled horse back rider I have been riding since age 5 I am 11 now I am also a skilled drawer I loved drawing horses its solo fun!

I love horse's I love drawing them there alsofun to ride I am very good at both drawling and riding I just love them there so cute and soft cuddly I used to ride Katie it wasn't mine the. I took lessons she is a great and fun and cuddly now I don't. Ride them

Such a beautiful animal and really fun to draw! I really recommend if you want something good to draw, something fun to draw, and something worth keeping once finished.

7 Turtle Turtles are an order of reptiles known as Testudines, characterized by a shell developed mainly from their ribs. Modern turtles are divided into two major groups, the side-necked turtles and hidden neck turtles, which differ in the way the head retracts. There are 360 living and recently extinct species of turtles, including land-dwelling tortoises and freshwater terrapins. They are found on most continents, some islands and, in the case of sea turtles, much of the ocean. Like other reptiles, birds, and mammals, they breathe air and do not lay eggs underwater, although many species live in or around water. Genetic evidence typically places them in close relation to crocodilians and birds. ...read more.

When you draw turtles (realistically... & cartoon-like), they look SO cool! Turtles are awesome! They have such a detailed body and they are just SO beautiful!

Love to draw sea animals, the reflections and shifting light the water creates is really so beautiful!

They're my favorite animal and they are such amazing creatures and so much fun to draw!

Turtles are so cute, friendly and are easy to draw.
I'm in love with them

8 Rabbit Rabbits, also known as bunnies or bunny rabbits, are small mammals in the family Leporidae (which also contains the hares) of the order Lagomorpha (which also contains the pikas). Oryctolagus cuniculus includes the European rabbit species and its descendants, the world's 305 breeds of domestic rabbit. Sylvilagus includes 13 wild rabbit species, among them the seven types of cottontail. The European rabbit, which has been introduced on every continent except Antarctica, is familiar throughout the world as a wild prey animal and as a domesticated form of livestock and pet. With its widespread effect on ecologies and cultures, the rabbit is, in many areas of the world, a part of daily life—as ...read more.

These guys can be drawn without color, so if you're the kind of person that likes to draw with pencil while it still looks proper. This is the drawing for you!

Rabbits are really easy to draw simple and realistically, making it one of my favorite animals to draw. I definitely recommend!

OMG yes! Rabbits are a complex, confusing, but still fun subject to draw. I draw them ALL the time. I've been drawing them for YEARS.

I love rabbit's so I draw them. The thing I like about drawing rabbit's is the body.

9 Snake Snakes are elongated, limbless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes. Like all other squamates, snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales. Many species of snakes have skulls with several more joints than their lizard ancestors, enabling them to swallow prey much larger than their heads (cranial kinesis). To accommodate their narrow bodies, snakes' paired organs (such as kidneys) appear one in front of the other instead of side by side, and most have only one functional lung. Some species retain a pelvic girdle with a pair of vestigial claws on either side of the cloaca. Lizards have evolved elongate bodies without limbs or with greatly reduced limbs ...read more.

Ok, why is everyone saying they are easy?! To all of you saying they are easy, try to draw specific species of snakes, a particular pattern/morph. Try to draw a Green Tree Python, a Boa Constrictor (BCC or BCI), A Bush Viper, a banded sea krait, and a Kingsnake, all have quite different features, so I challenge you to draw them, it isn't easy, they have different scales, different eyes, different bodies, different patterns, different head shapes, and more!

Snakes look really cool and aren't too difficult to draw. They're actually quite fun to draw once you know how.

Snakes are easy, all you have to do is draw wavy lines and do it again.

Snakes are easy to dray although they can be quite tricky.

10 Bird

Some are simple and some are not but if you are to show tone it's best to start on smaller birds than others.

Birds are very simple and nice to draw. Birds are also very good to draw because they are very small and are beautiful features.
Eujiny

Birds are stunning and easily my favorite animal to draw! Free and creative...

There are so many cute big and small birds to choose from!

The Contenders
11 Dolphin A dolphin is an aquatic mammal within the infraorder Cetacea. Dolphin species belong to the families Delphinidae (the oceanic dolphins), Platanistidae (the Indian river dolphins), Iniidae (the New World river dolphins), Pontoporiidae (the brackish dolphins), and the extinct Lipotidae (baiji or Chinese river dolphin). There are 40 extant species named as dolphins. ...read more.

They are so cute

They are funny

12 Penguin Penguins (order Sphenisciforme, family Spheniscid) are a group of aquatic flightless birds. They live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere: only one species, the Galápagos penguin, is found north of the Equator. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage and flippers for swimming. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sea life which they catch with their bills and swallow it whole while swimming. A penguin has a spiny tongue and powerful jaws to grip slippery prey.

They spend roughly half of their lives on land and the other half in the sea. ...read more.

Almost everyone just chooses their favorite animal. I don't think most people actually think their favorite animal is the best one to draw but in my opinion this is definitely the best on to draw.

Penguins look so regal in every drawing. If you draw them, make sure any colour REALLY stands out, because they live in such a dull environment.

I find birds really easy to draw, as you don't have to add all the fur details you would with mammals. Feathers are easier to draw as well.

Easy to draw, you can put dresses on them when you draw them, and you can express your creativity better when you draw a penguin.

13 Tiger The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest living cat species and a member of the genus Panthera. It is most recognisable for its dark vertical stripes on orange fur with a white underside. An apex predator, it primarily preys on ungulates such as deer and wild boar. It is territorial and generally a solitary but social predator, requiring large contiguous areas of habitat, which support its requirements for prey and rearing of its offspring. Tiger cubs stay with their mother for about two years, then become independent and leave their mother's home range to establish their own. ...read more.

Tigers are the most beautiful creatures their markings are so complex and unique. The eyes are probably what you should start with when drawing a tiger. If the eyes do not have pupils the piece will look unfinished no matter what. Tigers are awesome

Tigers have so many elements to focus on that can improve your drawing and coloring skills. From the fur pattern and directions, to their beautiful eyes, they are majestic animals that are incredibly fun do draw.

Tigers really are the most beautiful animal you can draw, yes there are other beautiful animals you can draw. But I think the texture of the coat and the face everything just makes it a good thing to draw to make an amazing piece of art

Every tiger has different markings, and unique spots of colour. I love tigers, and if you draw as much as I do, you will find that every drawing has basic shapes to form the structure. the tiger is just so beautiful and majestic. I love all tigers, but my favourites are the amazing white tigers. :D

14 Lion The lion (Panthera leo) is a large cat of the genus Panthera native to Africa and India. It has a muscular, broad-chested body, short, rounded head, round ears, and a hairy tuft at the end of its tail. It is sexually dimorphic; adult male lions are larger than females and have a prominent mane. It is a social species, forming groups called prides. A lion's pride consists of a few adult males, related females, and cubs. Groups of female lions usually hunt together, preying mostly on large ungulates. The lion is an apex and keystone predator; although some lions scavenge when opportunities occur and have been known to hunt humans, the species typically does not actively seek out and prey on humans. ...read more.

The King of the jungle establishes the very standard of majestic beauty and attains equilibrium between elegance and ferocity.

Majestic, would look beautiful in paper, and could be so many possibilities into the drawing era.

I love drawing these animals! They're a little hard, but really fun and unique.

I am an lion expert and I study them for a living. I truly agree with you.

15 Koala The koala is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae and its closest living relatives are the wombats.

So cute! I haven't actually drawn one yet because I have a massive list of animals to draw but I am going to very soon!

Koalas are really cute. I would recommend drawing one when it's sleeping. that's when they're the cutest!

I like how they have two thumbs.

I think koala are really cute.

16 Kangaroo The kangaroo is a marsupial from the family Macropodidae. In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, especially those of the genus Macropus: the red kangaroo, antilopine kangaroo, eastern grey kangaroo, and western grey kangaroo.

Just such a cool animal!

17 Shark Sharks are a group of elasmobranch fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Modern sharks are classified within the clade Selachimorpha (or Selachii) and are the sister group to the rays. However, ...read more.

Sharks have a relatively simply body, and most are different shades of grey so it's easier to shade them. The also are majestic creatures that look great as art.

I love to draw sharks are my favorite animal so it makes it easy. I'm a shark freak I'm not a girly-girl!

Sharks are the best animals to draw!

18 Phoenix

I have had quite a few dreams about phoenix's and they are marvellous! Love drawing them too. You can have so much fun with the wings and the background.

The detail that can be put into these is amazing... Their the first thing I learned to draw, so that also makes them my favorite!

So beautiful! This is just such a swift and perfect bird, I recommend it if you are a bit more into drawing realistic things.

Majestic, cool / awesome, and even though hard to draw your friends would be very impressed.

19 Leopard The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera. It is one of the most adaptable and the most widespread big cat; it's secrets being:well camouflaged fur; its opportunistic hunting behaviour, broad diet, and strength to move heavy carcasses into trees; its ability to adapt to various ...read more.

These cats look great in high detail drawings. Especially because of all the spots!

Very fast! Very beautiful! Very deadly!

20 Panda The giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca), also known as the panda bear (or simply the panda), is a bear species endemic to China.
It is characterised by its bold black-and-white coat and rotund body. The name "giant panda" is sometimes used to distinguish it from the red panda, a neighboring musteloid. Though it belongs to the order Carnivora, the giant panda is a folivore, with bamboo shoots and leaves making up more than 99% of its diet. Giant pandas in the wild occasionally eat other grasses, wild tubers, or even meat in the form of birds, rodents, or carrion. In captivity, they may receive honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, or bananas along with specially prepared food. ...read more.

This is a very cute animal, making it awesome to draw. I love the simplicity of drawing one but also the challenge to draw realistically.

These guys can be drawn without color, so if you're the kind of person that likes to draw with pencil while it still looks proper. This is the drawing for you!

So cute and fun to draw

They are cute

21 Unicorn

What is the best animal to think of that first comes in mind is the magical and amazing animal the unicorn. My little sister loves unicorns she makes me read her a story about unicorns. I guess that's how my sister loves the unicorn and I.

Unicorns could be good or evil, and that makes them so unique that it is interesting to draw. Also, horses are very difficult to draw, but unicorns aren't real so they are open to interpretation!

I haven't really drawn one before but I will soon, it would be cool to have an evil one and a good one rearing up to each other. Actually I'm gonna do that now, such a good idea!

Unicorns are graceful and beautiful and make a wonderful picture, plus they are easy to draw and let your imagination soar, VOTE FOR UNICORNS.

22 Fennec Fox The fennec fox or fennec is a small nocturnal fox found in the Sahara of North Africa. Its most distinctive feature is its unusually large ears, which also serve to dissipate heat.

This is a very cute animal, making it awesome to draw. I love the simplicity of drawing one but also the challenge to draw realistically.

Fennec foxes are so cute and small with big ears which makes them easy to draw and adorable.

Fennec Foxes are so cute and adorable!
If you draw one of these as long as it's cute, it'll be perfect!

They are so cute and their big ears make them look like chihuahua/foxes.

23 Elephant Elephants are the largest existing land animals. Three living species are currently recognised: the African bush elephant, the African forest elephant, and the Asian elephant. They are the only surviving members of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea, extinct relatives include mammoths ...read more.

Elephants are hard to draw especially around the eyes because of all the wrinkles! So if you do manage to draw one everyone would be so impressed!

Elephants are my favorite animal. You just have to look very close to see all the beauty.

All you have to do is look at every minor detail.

Easy and fun to draw

24 Duck Duck is the common name for a large number of species in the waterfowl family Anatidae, which also includes swans and geese.

They are cute, know to swim, have soft feathers and there feathers are color yellow and white.

I draw ducks all the time. Something about them is just so satisfying to draw.

When you have no other subject to draw, chose a duck.

Duck are awesome

25 Bat Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera. With their forelimbs adapted as wings, they are the only mammals capable of true and sustained flight. Bats are more agile in flight than most birds, flying with their very long spread-out digits covered with a thin membrane or patagium. The smallest bat, and ...read more.
