Guitars and tattoos are my main major drawing hates, I find them unbearably tricky. I also find teeth difficult to draw, and very pale hair, you have to try and show that there's hair while leaving it pale enough to get the shade right.
Hands, feet, emotions. I always suck to draw people proportionally according to the anatomy especially from my imagination... Oh and i haven't mentioned landscapes, i mean people how you draw them? it's something impossible XDD
I think by the waym I feather and realsitic paintings, I think line art is pretty tough, Its the basic form of the shape, and I feel I don't know how enough line art I should do, because I feel in the end, values and color, go over the lines anyway, and that their edges matter more.
I draw on anime style... For me the most difficult stuff is perspective, sometimes proportions, and realistic faces... also to do a decent background when I want to add something related to what I thought in the very first place... also... WINGS!!! ah god! Sometimes is just hard to get that right... or at least decent enough XD
Realism is tricky for me. Comic and manga stuff, not too bad, but getting really precise and trying to match something as closely as possible is really tough and constraining for me, so it take far more patience to do I have a lot of admiration for people who can render something precisely enough that it looks like photographic work
Oh, and vehicles and weapons are a bitch to draw as well
My problems are many, some times I struggle with proportion, I am mainly a anime/manga charecter sorta artist, and some times I just can't get it how I want it. With me, if it isn't perfect, DESTROY IT! Seriously. I will in most cases crumple it up and toss it aside and try on a different sheet of paper. Though I will say that some fantasy creatures get real frusterating to draw.
Drawing backgrounds (ie: comics) is always the biggest pain in the butt for me! There are so many factors to consider. Drawing some kinds of women's hair can be really tricky, too, if it's curly or really wavy.
Coming from a different background, I think semi-realistic ponies (i.e. giving convincingly real form to highly stylized ponies) are very tough. Not saying it's the hardest thing to do though.
While drawing hands can be helped by referring to your own and drawing what you see, you are completely on your own with ponies. There are no absolutely references which you can directly copy from. You have to come up with your own shading, and your own form. You have to come up with your own anatomy. Some artists do this better than others. Some artists are very good at this while others create uncanny monsters.

When it comes to traditional there isn't much that intimidates me. I'm not saying that because I think I'm so good, I just feel fairly comfortable with a pencil. With digital work I hate clothes. I have a very difficult time with the texture for clothing. Clothing is probably what I find most difficult with traditional as well. Although I finally got jeans down which is good!
It's a ridiculous thing, but the biggest issue I have with drawing is that my pictures are very stiff and lack life - and despite my dA gallery, I don't mean I use the same pose for every picture. Because it's not something that can be explained in so few words, I have a lot of trouble grasping how to 'loosen up' and because I want to make a career of drawing and animation, I try really hard to make my work great - which makes the problem worse! xD
