Top 10 Hardest Things to Draw

The Top Ten
1 Car

Was trying to draw a Humvee as a bg object in my final...It's damn near impossible. Never thought cars would be so difficult!

I can't draw cars, I've always wanted to draw a Volkswagen Beetle and a Skoda Saloon but I can't.

I have drawn a car many times it is not hard or impossible

I won't say it's the hardest but it is pretty hard I admit

2 Eiffel Tower

Pretty easy for me. If it doesn't have too many curves like a face does, its easy for me.

I've tried lots of times and its like impossible to draw.

I can't draw it cause the curve and the detail.

Lots of bits that need to be intercut

3 Anchor

No it is easy

4 Puppy

I just try and try but I can only draw a cartoon one and not a realistic one.

The face features... Too difficult

Soo many details

So hhaarrdd to get right! Ughhh

5 Dice

I honestly thought it was just a cube with dots on it, but it could be hard, I don't know.

very easy, even if you want to do the shading with it. maybe its because I am a Minecraft artist, but PEOPLE ITS JUST A CUBE :/

I just can’t draw it I’ve tried so hard even with hundreds of reference pictures I still can’t do it

its really hard

6 Ocean

Blending the waves and getting the texture smooth is what I find rlly hard

Drawing the ripples and waves is a real pain.

I couldn't find enough shade of blue

The ripples bro... The ripples

7 Self-Portrait

these are like so difficult like I watch videos and pics and I say oh those are so easy then when I start drawing it . I say this is so difficult

It is extremely hard to be able to draw your face features, because you can't just look at a picture of yourself and be able to draw your face in a blink of an eye.

I can do charcoal portraits of others, but making a self-portrait is close to impossible for me unless I'm using a mirror.

When I try to draw myself as an astronaut, it turns out that I'm drawing a dying goat

8 Skull

It is really hard because of the skulls shape.

They are hard to do but fun to pass time.

sometimes it can be a bit too hard, depending on if it is human or not

It is to hard

9 Hands

I think hands are definitely difficult to draw, probably the hardest thing for me to draw but if you practice and work hard on your hand drawing it gets easier and you get better.

Yeah these are hard, mostly because of the angles of fingers and stuff
Hand tutorials only show you certain poses, and there are like a million poses they can have
Get this: horikoshi, author of my hero academia, actually likes drawing hands. How?

they're VERY hard to draw... but the easiest thing to do is use your own hand as a reference... It's also hard to draw poses cause I never know what pose to put my characters in!

Hands, in my experience, aren't that difficult to draw. my tips are to draw guidelines, and always draw the general palm shape smaller than you think you'll need it. if you think you need around, say, a slightly deflated trapezoid, try a very deflated one. it's so lazy to put the hands behind the back- even though all artists do it at some point- so I recommend working on hands the second you think your face and hair skills are alright.

10 House

I drew house many times, dosen't work.

depends on what type of house. like the little kindergarten house is easy, realistic is hardd

The Contenders
11 Instruments

like I said, if you are looking at one it is easy

some of these are not horribly hard but still difficult

12 Human Head

Getting a face to express genuine emotion is the hardest thing.

I can never get the shape right

Proportions are evil

I get stuck on the nose

13 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.

I'm not attempting again

It’s really hard because you have to put a lot of details into it, hair, teeth, eyes, claws.

It’s so hard to draw the eyes and fur

that is hardest to draw for me because of fur

14 Anime Hair

I am so bad at drawing anime boy hair! I can never get it to look shaggy and good

I can never get the shading right!

I'm going through an anime phase rn and it just never works

It’s pretty basic, but mine end up looking fuzzy and crazy instead of that sleek beautiful look.

15 Horses

Getting the texture, shading, and shape on how they are made takes months to years to accomplish. I started drawing horses when I was about two. Since then, this is my eleventh year on drawing and study the horse when I look at one that I recently have drawn and feel bad about my shading work. I look at old drawings and look at other people's art to make me feel motivated.

Horses can be really hard to draw

Mine look fat

It’s hard to draw the hair and the feet the same for all of them

16 Bikes

I have tried still can't

can never get the right shape

too symmetrical to be hard

look easy but are hhaarrdd

17 Eyes

I am pretty good at drawing, but whenever I try to do eyes either they aren't real-looking or just creepy. And don't get me started on trying to make the left and right eyes look the same.

I can draw one eye but never the other

Pupils are always too small on mine

Hardest thing to get them perfectly almost symrical

18 Chicken The chicken is a type of domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the red junglefowl. It is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 19 billion as of 2011.

Getting the texture of the feathers, beak and feet can be difficult at times... you have to practice it is not something you accomplish over night

The legs always look horrible

19 Water

You can bearly see anything in water but people think its blue

20 Cats 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.

Harder than anything to draw! Tried to draw my cat whilst he was sitting down and the reason cats are so hard to draw is because they are always on the move! The best time to draw them is when they are sleeping.

A cats face is hard!

because uhh mind your business

21 Anime Eyes

I can't draw anime eyes is so hard

They look terrible unless you color them in or smh.

22 Chameleons

Chameleons are very difficult to draw - even with a reference. Try drawing one from memory, the results are quite humorous

I remember that tumblr post about that guy trying to draw a chameleon

23 Human Legs

They're always too small and weird looking compared to everything else

All. weird and whobbily

It’s so hard to make them the same

never the right size

24 Ears

I don't even know what an ear is supposed to look like, much less draw it correctly

Ear anatomy is surprisingly difficult...

25 Ponytail

It’s hard to make it not look like your a two year old

Ok, these are kinda ez, but still hhaarrdd

It’s hard to draw it because if your character is look at you for your drawing it’s hard for me
