Top 10 Best Animals to Draw


The Top Ten

1 Wolf Wolf Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

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.

My %95 of my drawings are wolves and I feel like I can draw them till the rest of my life...

They beautiful creatures and all they need is care from their fellow pack members

The best animal ever

2 Cat Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.

My cat is my muse.

I draw cats all the time!
Go warrior cats!

I enjoy mostly drawing cats or wolves, but If I had to choose one %51 cat, &49 wolf.

I have a Dorkie- Dachshund and Yorkie mix- and her name is Minnie. She is SO CUTE!

I love drawing dogs! So fun and cute!

4 Horse Horse The horse is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae, and can be tamed, bred, and trained, as a mount.

I love horses so much! I've been studying them and drawing them for around seven years. They are my all time favorite animal!

I've loved horses ever since the day I was born me and my family's lives were around horses, a horse farm and more I think that's why I love them so much. I love to sit in the paddocks with the horses and the new borns and sketch them they are really beautiful no matter what breed or colour they are known as one of the hardest things to draw but just keep practising because it will be worth it, you can use lots of different shading techniques with horses but with some other things you can't, if it is difficult for you to draw horses there are many books on how to draw horses and different breeds. Just keep working at it because they really are a beautiful animal and friend, family.

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.

Ridden horses for ever. Horses were put on this earth for 3 reasons. To ride, to draw, and most of all, to love like family.

10 Penguin Penguin Penguins are a group of aquatic, flightless birds. They live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, with only one species, the Galapagos penguin, found north of the equator.

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.

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.

Penguins are the best

Only 8th, penguins really are underestimated. I'm just glad they're on here. They are the best to draw.

The Contenders

11 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

Lions are awesome to draw and to look at as well!

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

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

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

12 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 stunning and easily my favorite animal to draw! Free and creative... - keycha1n

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

13 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

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

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 for me are the best and most beautiful thing to draw because it has the best patterns and awesome eyes and shape.

14 Snake Snake Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.

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

Best animal ever

16 Shark Shark Sharks are a group of 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. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

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!

Bout the only thing I can draw

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 can draw fish... <=^=< or something like that but fish are easier to draw than sharks

17 Koala 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.
