How to Make a Realistic Drawing




Introduction: How to Make a Realistic Drawing

First you are going to need some pencils, erasers, and a reference. For shading you might want a cotton swab a tissue or even your fingers for blending and shading to make the object look smoother.

Step 1: Getting Started

First off you are going to find a reference. It can be in a magazine online or something in real life not just a picture. Then you are going to get your pencils (or pencil) and start drawing. The reference helps you with shading and getting the shapes right.

Step 2: Start Drawing

You can copy the reference exactly or you can change it a little bit. after you make a basic outline of the object that you are drawing you can get your cotton swab or tissue or finger and start shading.

Step 3: You're Done

After you are done shading you are done with the drawing. I hope your drawing turned out well. Mine didn't turn out as well as I wanted it to , but dogs are very hard for me to draw.
