Taehyung’s Drawing Skill
Taehyung is known as one of the BTS member who has an artistic side, along with the other guys in the maknae line, Jimin and Jungkook. For the last two years, Taehyung has said that he’s interested in art, but mostly in painting.
At several events, Taehyung has shown off his drawing skills. Many ARMY’s have stated that his ability has improved a lot through the years.Let’s check out his some of his drawings, starting from the early days:
The first picture from the left was taken in 2014, when each member (except Suga, who was sick at that time) made a drawing for New Year Eve.

This is when BTS did an interview for their Japanese album in 2014. There is a segment where the members had to draw each other’s faces. At the time, Taehyung had to raw Jimin’s face.
V pointed out that in his drawing, the most eye-catching feature of Jimin’s face was his lips. So what do you guys think? Did you find the similarities??
The first picture on the left is a drawing of Taehyung’s that was meant to be a lion, but instead it looks cute and more look like a puppy, right? On the second picture in, he drew J-Hope during one of ‘Rookie King’ episodes.The last picture on the right is Taehyung’s drawing from one of BTS’s Summer Packages.
During ‘BTS Gayo Track’, they had to draw each member’s face on a blackboard. That time, Taehyung got a chance to draw Namjoon. Take a look at his drawing and the reaction from Namjoon himself, below:
Around 2016 to 2017, Taehyung’s drawing skills were noticeably improving. In Bon Voyage season 2, Taehyung asked Jungkook’s help to improve his drawing; it also showed a sketchbook full of drawings.

On one of BTS special photobooks, Taehyung drew his feelings as an idol and how he feels being a part of BTS. In the first picture, we can see him drawing a single person, which is himself, but then more member come and make their debut together with some few fans. But then, in the last picture, it shows that BTS has developed a lot and also did a concert with a larger venue and fans.
