In the drawing there is several different objects and human body parts that I use as a reference to show you how to sketch draw realistic things. If you are using a tablet you must choose the appropriate brushes and set the settings. If you are using the old fashioned method (which is probably best), all you need is a few sheets of clean sketching paper, a nice mechanical pencil, and a good eraser, preferably one that does not smear or smudge the pencil markings. Realistic drawing is when you sketch objects or people in the best detailed way as possible. Trying to make something look real from a drawing is often pretty hard to do especially when you are inexperienced or new to the whole realistic drawing concept. I myself am pretty new to realistic drawing, and I know that my sketch may not be perfect, but at least you will get a general idea on what sketching realistically should look like. I drew a realistic eye, some realistic noses, and some realistic mouths that will be included with this step by step online drawing lesson. In the finished sketch, there is a head without a face, two hands, an arm, and a rabbit head.
