Top 10 Best Animals to Draw

The Top Ten

1 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 were my favorite animal when I was a kid and I loved to draw them, but now I love to draw tigers, but wolves are still very beautiful

You can just capture their beauty. When drawing them, it's nice to do a moon over their head and trees

I agree if this is #1 because who wouldn't want to draw a cute wolf?

Totally love wolves being an artist this is my favourite animal

2 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.

I have three cats and they're very precious to me, people say cat's are evil, but that's not true.

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.

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

3 Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

I have 2 dog and they are awesome that's why I love dogs and because they cuddle with you

Dogs are most related to how humans live their life which is fun

They are hard their mouths are weird same with foxes. Cats weird to draw from the side

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

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

Dragons are not real but are still cool to draw cause of their fire breathing

Drawing a dragon really helped me expand my imagination, nice recommendation

I think a dragon would be a awesome animal to draw and it’s a legendary creature

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. - Dragonlindy

5 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.

Oh my gosh, YES. This should be number one. WHY ON EARTH IS IT NUMBER 5?!

I've drawn a few other animals before, but horses are by far the best. I'm still at my first horse drawing, but they have already won me over. They're just great!

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.

6 Turtle Turtles are diapsids of the order Testudines characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs and acting as a shield. "Turtle" may refer to the order as a whole or to fresh-water and sea-dwelling testudines.

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!

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

There so easy 2 draw lol. - InsertNameHere

I love turtles and they have so much details great if you want to impress someone special

7 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 foxes main prey are birds, fish, berries, insects, and rabbits. Some of the best known species ...read more.

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 are by far what I enjoy drawing the most as animals. There are so many ways you can draw them. Lol, even draw them with wings!

Foxes are wonderful to draw. There are just so much to do with them! You can draw a cute cuddly little fox,a serious and beautiful fox with stern eyes,a scary drawing with a vicious fox,a cool anime one,a realistic one,or a simple one. The possibilities are endless!

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.

8 Bird

I love drawing birds since none of them look the same, their wings are especially fun to draw, I also love drawing ocean animals though

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.
Eujiny

9 Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

I have a rabbit at home, she is the most adorable bunny u will ever see. I love bunnies and spend the most of my drawing skills making the ones I draw look as good as they can. My Pro Skills

These are so cute I wish I had one

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

It was my 2nd good drawing I ever did its easy

10 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.

I love how snakes are in the top 10, they're very beautiful

Nice and long

Snakes are long and look cool

The Contenders

11 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.

Penguins are cute and I find them easy to draw. In my opinion, all the penguins I draw are cute (Not that I draw any)

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 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.

12 Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

They are so cute

its cewl

13 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.

They're the true king of the jungle lol, I mean lions don't live in the jungle anyways.

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

14 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.

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

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

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

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

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.

I like how they have two thumbs.

So slow so cool so good to draw

I think koala are really cute.

so 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!

Laugh out loud I just love kangaros

I LOVE EM

17 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

18 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 love unicorns they can be scary or cute and cuddly

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!

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.

20 Phoenix

harder more than dragons... because they have more of details

21 Panda The giant panda, also known as panda bear or simply panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is easily recognized by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body.

I draw Pandas for my best friend and always think its easy

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

23 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 my favourite animal to draw because it has an amazing coat to draw!

25 Snow Leopard The snow leopard is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. The name "Snow Leopard" is due to its white fur, and the black spots dotted over it.

I love Snow Leopard because they are very pretty animals. Also I have just always loved them.

I love these animal they are just so adorable and they are to easy to draw

Snow leopards are so pretty I love them.

Snow leopards are endangered! SAVE THE SNOW LEOPARDS!

Pigs r amazing even though I can't draw them

Pigs r easy to draw and you can add detail to make thwm look really pretty

28 Sea Horse Seahorse is the name given to 54 species of small marine fishes in the genus Hippocampus. "Hippocampus" comes from the Ancient Greek word hippos meaning "horse" and kampos meaning "sea monster".

I prefer to draw these unique creatures in tattoos. There are so many ways you can draw them

They are very cute

I LOVE seahorses. They're very beautiful and gentle creatures, and have very interesting body shapes, but they're fairly easy for those just learning to draw.

Awesome and colourful

29 Goat The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe.

Who wouldn't want to draw a good goat? - MrGoat

30 Elephant Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species.

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.

They are cute

31 Owl Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about two hundred species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight.

I draw these all the time! Trust me here.

32 Hyena Hyenas or hyaenas are any feliform carnivoran mammals of the family Hyaenidae /haɪˈɛnᵻdiː/. With only four extant species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia.

34 Chameleon Chameleons or chamaeleons are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of old world lizards with 202 species described as of June 2015. These species come in a range of colors, and many species have the ability to change colors.

Chameleons have many interesting features that help to make up the very interesting animal it is.

Horrible creatures kill mother earth and when mother earth gets mad at them they destroy more

And by the ranking, not even the best animal...

Still counts

44 Okapi The okapi is a giraffid artiodactyl mammal native to the northeast of the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Central Africa.

Their very similar to the giraffe since their cousins just with a shorter neck and legs. But giving them color is very fun and just a little bit complicated. And they are the most awesome best animal in the world.

I had a go at drawing one of these. they are relevantly easy to draw but they are are kinda hard to draw because of the small thin white stripes
