The "OMG I Have Nothing To Draw" Thread

It can't be just me, sometimes everyone has to get tired of drawing horses. Come on everyone, 'fess up. So this is the thread where people can post ideas, horsey or non horsey, for other people to draw/paint. Post as many as you want!

I get super bored of drawing horses sometimes too. I'd suggest getting out of your comfort zone of drawing horses and try drawing some different animals. Cats are reasonably simple to draw, give them a go. Also dogs, theyr'e a little more tricky but I've found drawing different animals greatly improved my horse drawings because you get a feel for the fur and muscle textures.
If you master cats and dogs, more onto some wildlife. Animals that you're not so familiar with will REALLY help boost your drawing skills!!!

I would try cats, there super hard, at least for me, or maybe a still life or wilderness setting. Or go somewhere, take a random picture and just draw it, see where you get.

It's funny...I have a much harder time with drawing cats than I do with drawing dogs, but maybe because I have just drawn more dogs than

What I struggle with to no end are human drawings. Try as I might, I just can't get it down and for sure it doesn't help that I despise drawing human subjects to begin with. I'd love to get good enough so I can incorporate a human subject into a commission should the client wish for one, but as of now I just can't advertise myself as a human portrait artist at all. It sucks that I really have no inspiration to draw them in the first place.

Haha Liz it's funny how everyone finds different things difficult like that. To me cats are so much easier, but thats possibly because I'm not a cat person so I don't look into their eyes and see their personality, I just draw what's put in front of me. With dogs I try much harder to get that personality into the drawing and find it so much harder to do :P

People... yuck. Can't do them at all. Did Johnny Depp once in black pen and that worked, but it was more of a play around drawing, if i sit down in graphite or pencil and try to draw a person it's terrible! Really should practice but I get frustrated if I can't get something right, and that puts me in a bad mood for my commissions!
