Things I Can’t Draw For The Life Of Me

Hey girl hey. And boy.

I find it fascinating what one can do with just a pencil and paper. There are some people who create stories and emotion through their drawings and then there’s me – that one potato who can barely make out a stickman (fine, that was an exaggerationΒ πŸ˜‚) But still.Β I can’t draw from memory – I need to look at a picture unless it’s a rose or Squidward or something I memorised when I was younger. Yes, Squidward. But there are some points when even looking at a picture can’t help the fact that there are some things I just can’t draw.Β Β So here are some of them – enjoy.Β πŸ˜‚


  • Hands

Okay what? Hands look so easy to draw but they’re NOT! Whenever I attempt to draw fingers, they legit look like noodles like what is happening? Seriously though, I can do arms and bodies but when it comes to hands, my artistic skills (very low) decide to shut off.Β πŸ˜‚

  • Teeth

Guys don’t even get me started on this one. Why are teeth SO hard to draw? Like whenever I make them straight, they look creepy. Whenever I make them curvy, they look weird. At least some people smile with their lips.Β πŸ˜‚

  • Eyeballs

I can draw the outline of an eye and lashes but when it comes to eyeballs, I give up. If there’s a pupil with colour around, it looks like a doll. If I try to do those little ticks around, it looks like a doll. If I just colour it in, IT LOOKS LIKE A DOLL. There’s no escaping the doll eyes, guys!!Β πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Β And I know some people reading this like those AG dolls but no, we’re talking Anabelle here.Β πŸ˜‚Β I can’t draw human-like eyeballs!!

  • Landscape

Honestly, ‘what can I even draw’ is the question. πŸ˜‚Β Sorry guys, art is not my thing. I don’t have the patience to sit there and sketch 40 flowers in a row. I’m not good with blending colours or distance either. Art is really hard, okay??Β πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Facial

I know this is a weird one but I seriously can’t draw facial hair. It’s so hard! Every month we’re given different sketchbook assignments and I picked favourite character. I attempted to draw this guy from a Turkish drama but he had a light beard so I failed miserably.Β πŸ˜‚ I don’t get how people can sketch texture – teach me!

Actually how???


  • Men’s hair

This is kind of like the last one but not facial. Men’s hair is so hard to draw. I can do female but male is a whole other story. Whenever I try the whole spiky effect, it looks like a tornado. And some guys have the timmy-turner-looking spikes within their hair which is so hard! I’ll just stick to bald guys for art assignments thank you very much.πŸ˜‚

loool this gif tho



  • Sideways face

Ugh I’m not sure why this is so hard for me but I always end up making the forehead too big and the nose too small and ugh the bumps in between are so hard!Β πŸ˜‚ And when I draw the chin, it looks like Crimson Chin from Fairly Odd Parents – not even exaggerating!

Fiiine I’ll be optimistic.Β πŸ˜‚

  • Ears
  • Lips
  • Hair (occasionally)
  • Brows (hey, I’m actually not too bad at these)
  • Roses (cartoon ones only)
  • Dresses
  • Lashes (who can’t)
  • Takis packet (shocker)
  • Furniture
  • Cubes
  • Lines
  • Triangle
  • Square

okay I’m getting a bit too optimistic.Β πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Β You get the idea.


Oh well, turns out no one’s good at everything, and I guess this is one of those things.Β πŸ˜‚

What parts do you struggle drawing?

Do we share the same list?

I’ll see you guys in my next post.

    Ugh, men’s/boy’s hair- it’s a nightmare! Mine literally looks like a crown on top of a bald head! Or a random curly thing. This (again) is such a relatable post! One of my friends is trying to teach me how to draw eyes but with no success ☹️haha, at least I can draw a stick figure πŸ™„πŸ˜’πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    OMG HANDSSSSπŸ‘. Who’s stupid ass idea was it to make students draw HANDS! I’m taking art for my GCSEs(dunno if you know what they are – they’re basically important exams) and I flipping HATE drawing hands (and NOSESSSS). I don’t have the patience to sit there for 2 hours drawing the little details (I guess I’m gonna struggle when it ones to the real exam which is 10 hours long). I hate art maaan 😦

    I am awesome at cartoon people, BUT NOT REAL PEOPLE!!! You should show me some of your art someday! I would love to see the stuff you are good that. I am sure you are not as bad as you say! It takes practice and a LOT of art classes to be a perfect artist. But there is no such thing as a perfect artist. Hey, check out my mom’s art blog for some art tricks here:
    I hope you find it useful! Have a great day!


    • Bayance says:

      Same here with eyes until I get to the eyeball smh πŸ˜‚ Omg yess how do you even draw masculine lips. I also struggle with men’s eyes since in cartoons they don’t have lashes, but they do in real life and I always end up making them look feminine. πŸ˜‚

      πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ lashes are pretty easy – just draw curly lines going outward. Or you could do them straight going to the side. Also make sure they’re on an angle, you don’t want them looking like Spongebob. πŸ˜‚

    Drawing hands is probably the hardest thing to draw…..ever! Like, when I’m supposed to draw hands I draw glove-shaped hands and they look sooo baaaad. I, for one, canot draw ANYTHING.

    I’m not gifted at drawing or calligraphy.
    I do crochet and craft rather well.
    Still I wish I could at least draw a decent Christmas Tree… my annual challenge when I tackle my Marketing projects at work!
