|What is hardest to draw?
Novelty can be hard, but I always welcome the challenge of drawing something new.
Realistic humans. Especially their faces. =(
Oh, sometimes hands, and...mechanized things, like cars, guns, robots, and the like.
Hands. If I'm drawing them from life or from a photograph I can draw them just fine, but trying to draw them from my head is extremely hard for me. It's probably something I should practice regularly but I'm not that motivated yet!
Some days, nothing; some days, everything. Even the simplest thing can be hard to draw if your head's not in it. I tend to convince myself that I can't draw certain things - noses, for example, or hands - and then when I actually try, I tend to be more successful that I expected.
I think the question is more 'what is hardest to collage?'! There are certain things that have provided interesting challenges, but I've succeeded so far from monsters and mice to rubber ducks and children being sucked into plugholes! It's definitely much easier to collage from reference though - I always aim to create at least a sense of realism in my work, so if I'm collaging something I'm not completely confident about - an animal, or a figure in an unusual position - then it's always best to have a photo nearby. I especially love to create characters entirely from my head though, like monsters and brightly coloured insects - they're the easiest to create, because you can make them look exactly how you want to.
It used to be perspective shots, but i have done some research over the past few years and have overcome most of my shortcomings in this regard.
I once had to draw an old mechanical snow sled from the early 1900's, that was pretty tough. I had no idea what this machine would look like and it took me ages to find some decent reference.
I think one of the toughest things an illustrator can be asked to do is to draw something or someone consistently multiple times.
I think most illustrators worth their salt would be able to draw anything very well with the right instruction or reference.
However I think an illustrator can be really tested when they have to draw the same person, but from different angles or with expressions on their face. I think that is the ultimate challenge.
hands and feet
I don't do portraits, but I think they are the hardest. I have never mastered life drawing
to draw worry out of the mind...
Some days everything other days nothing
Machinery. Cars, motorcycles, and things that require a lot of precise rendering are all kind of a chore, though I can draw a mean Vespa...
machinery and archtecture. NO guesswork. It MUST be CORRECT, or just looks BAD!!! LOL! For me, "HARDEST" doenst mean Impossible for me to draw, it DOES mean that i have to REALLLLLLY focus in order to draw it!
anything out of your head :P
Anything that I don't find interesting which isn't a whole lot but there is something I am sure.
