Top 10 Hardest Things to Draw

The Top Ten
1 Car

If it is the side view( the cartoon one ) I can draw it but if it is the realistic view or way to draw it, I just always struggle but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to do it with some practice.

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!

Cars from the side is always easy but when it's from the top or front, DUDE!

2 Eiffel Tower

The amount of detail is torture to me. It's also hard for me to go from a large base to a small top because it never looks quite right.

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.

3 Puppy

If it is a cartoon one, I can draw it. But, if it has to be the realistic one I just can't draw it.

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

The face features... Too difficult

4 Anchor
5 Ocean

Oceans for me are just hard. No matter if I'm trying to do it in a realistic way or if I'm trying a new loose style. I hope with practice I'll improve! I mean I am still really young so I've got a lot to learn!

Drawing the ripples and waves is a real pain.

It always looks like, a tad bit off, I don't know how but it just does

6 Self-Portrait

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.

I can never seem to find it easy to do anything if it is the realistic way but the cartoon way, I can draw it.

7 Dice

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

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

8 Skull

This is the one I cannot seem to get the teeth looking correct but the rest I can.

It is really hard because of the skulls shape.

They are hard to do but fun to pass time.

9 Hands

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.

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?

10 House

I can draw the cartoon way but the realistic way, I cannot draw it.

The Contenders
11 Instruments
12 Human Head

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

13 Wolf The wolf (Canis lupus), also known as the gray or grey wolf, is a large canine native to Eurasia and North America. Over thirty subspecies of Canis lupus have been recognized, with gray wolves comprising the wild subspecies. As the largest extant member of the Canidae family, the wolf is distinguished... read more

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

14 Anime Hair

Anime hair what a wonderful thing! But it is SO hard to draw I mean I can draw anime hair really nicely but it takes me like 20 try's! Everybody in my class thinks I'm the best drawer I agree. Not to be offensive to my class course they are all amazing drawers just anime hair is a nope. Do you agree with me or am I just crazy? "Just kidding!"

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

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

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.

16 Bikes
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.

18 Water
19 Anime Eyes
20 Cats 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... read more

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.

21 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

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

24 Ears

Ear anatomy is surprisingly difficult...

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

25 Ponytail

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