Batman by MolotovGTM

I must say,I thought that this was just a normal photography. I am stunned by how realistic this looks,especially since you did not use...

Hey everyone,
How are you doing?
Well,the most of you might know that I have found two people teaching me how to draw realism,and therefore I need to practice a lot.
That is why I am taking drawing requests now....so incase you want that I draw you or your friends/family just PM me. :)
There is just one catch,I am not especially good at drawing people,so it could be that I mess up the drawing... :(

Hello.

Just stopping by to give a helping hand in your quest to drawing better.

These are just some tips that I've learned from others.

1. Realistic drawing is ultimately a study in lighting and how light affects surfaces. Observe and study how light reflects from different materials. Some reflect light strongly, some absorb light and have darker shadows because of it.

2. Most realism pictures (not sketches, but actual finished pictures) have 3 main types of shadows: light, medium, and dark shadows. And of course, white.  If you overdo one type of shadow over another, it can make the picture come off as flat, taking away from the 3d effect.  So, try to keep darks only where they are absolutely necessary, and the rest in balance.

3. Pay attention to line hardness. Some lines are thick, dark, and strong--this gives the illusion that the texture is, thick, hard, and/or strong.  Some lines are soft--thin; this is used for thin fabrics on clothing, soft skin, thin hair, etc.  IF all your lines are hard lines, the picture seems like a cartoon, comic book, or a picture that is meant to be NOT realistic.

That's just something to keep you practicing.  You'll get better. 

Last, keep your hand softly, don't push on the pencil too hard.

If you want more tips, search youtube.  Plenty of people have good videos online.
