Voted for Other: Proportional/Perspective.

I can draw individual elements  competently, but when it comes to putting it all together it falls apart.

For me it's the muzzle.

For me its Heads, I'm still a newbie when it comes to drawing any kind of anthro's (I prefer macabre scenes designed to horrify people but that irrelevant XD) But the heads always stump me, I consider myself a perfectionist so It will take me literally hours to complete a head of any sort as I will not let up until it is perfect...... PERFECT I TELL YOU!!!  :D

Hands come a close second but I've been practicing normal hands and I think I've got the hang of it  (:

I voted backgrounds, mainly since it's the one thing that can be left out easily.. I don't focus on them enough.

I will admit though, I'm still tweaking my skills on the canine muzzle, but I generally handle other elements just fine. Took me years..  x_x

I think I'm pretty good with most things but I just can't think up poses. So many of my pictures are in the same pose, it's really agrivating.

Keyoki: Once you find a good book on general anatomy, and how to plot out your character's poses, it'll come more naturally. You have to learn the general "circles and lines" posing technique and it'll be easy to arrange those in the pose you desire.

What I'm trying to explain looks a lot like this: http://hometown.aol.com/floro144/images/flyingwomanrough.jpg
I use something very similar to this. As for the human/Furry head, there's not much deviation between the two, just add the desired muzzle and ears..

#1 for me is hands. Mostly hides them if i cant get them to look decently.

#2 would be background/scenery, especially grass and trees x.x

#3 repetition, gotten alot better than when i started out, but i still have issues drawing some characters features and designs the same way from one pic to another.

#4 Fems has a hard time making a female look decent at all, half the time end up looking like guys with moobs X.o

#5 would be perspective, like with sitting poses, #2 comes in to play with that too since my furniture sucks anyway lol

No question: Hands.

However, after specifically practicing them, I've gotten a lot better at it. But I still usually have to redraw them a few times to get them to look right.
