So, which bit gets most people stumped? For me, it is the expression. I like it to be perfect '<img'>
Understanding leads to empathy,
Empathy leads to admiration,
Admiration leads to love

Optimism leads to disappointment,
Pessimism leads to joy,
although, with optimism you are happy almost all the time,
and pessimism you are sad almost all the time.

Where's the line between being bored and generally too lazy to do anything? :p

Armpits would be the answer for me.
The way the arm connects to the body and is shaped depending on the arms' position.

I'm pretty much BAD at the whole thing (just starting to get better, look for some of my work... ':blush:' ), though the thing that's hardest the most for me? EYES! I just can't get them right, and if one of them's turned away from our view, but there's still a bit visible, that's just hell to draw... ':cry:'

Muzzle... with it pointing downwards or to the sides, okay, but upwards or looking in the camera, that's what I find difficult. I should look for a tutorial.

Main body structure. Torso and legs are an arse. All the little bits are fine, but i struggle to make them coperate.

Right now it the main body and clothes.
I did take art and drawing in high school. My problem is I excelled in landscape and objects. I never really went far with the human body.

The pose is the hardest for me, that is what takes the most of my time with drawing then the clothes.

well the head is the hardest for me because the head is shaped differently for different animals. I get so used to drawing one thing all the time, so I'll practice on that.

The hair, that's 100%ly the hardest thing to draw when I'm drawing in my style.

My characters are designed to be 2D so the hair styles never change other than the front angle design and the side angle design.

You'd think that would make drawing more easy, but it really doesn't, every single time I need to draw the hair it needs to be the same every single time otherwise the character looks different. Colouring the hair is also difficult and takes the longest amount of time than any other part of the body, and if I want to colour the strands of hair (which I do not do most of the time) it takes days...

For some reason lately I've been having trouble drawing hands. I don't know why that would be. Way back in high school when I had art class one of the very first things we ever did was to look at our hands and draw them. I mean, hands are the one part you can always look down at and see how they are built, yet lately I've still been having trouble with hands.

It has to be the muzzle. I'm bad at drawing those.

Ears. Specifically the ear on the left of the drawing. Being right-handed the motion of drawing is less natural, so often it takes me several tries to get something that works.

Art-wise the thing that bugs me most if colouring. I love drawing, and shading is a bit of a pain, but I'm getting the hang of it. Colouring though? Doesn't matter whether it's traditional or computer sends me into a tizzy. I have no sense of how colours work together or even what colours and shades look good together.

I'm not much good at the abdomen and hips. *shrug*

Second place would be all paws, and third would be knees. ><

I have the hardest part with the pose.  References make it pretty easy for me to draw the individual parts, but actually getting them all together in a realistic position is very difficult for me for some reason.  I also tend to have a hard time with perspective which I guess just makes the problem worse.

I can't draw faces.  Hands and feet I can fudge, limbs just need to look generally right.  But faces have that "something's weird" look if not drawn just right.  So for me, this option really encompasses face (eyes mostly), muzzle, and expressions.

I voted for pose, but I also have problems with proportion, the arms always look too short... But the poses, I can imagin, just have trouble drawing. And lately I've been reduced to drawing on paint, the harddrive was wiped, taking photoshop with it ':p' ...

The clothes, all the life models at college were just that. I prefer to do more modestly dressed characters when I can.
