Hello everybody! Today I am obviously talking about drawing realistically. It's quite simple, really. I will walk you through every step I take to draw like this.
-Pencil (I recommend a mechanical so you can extend the lead for shading and sketching)
-Paper (I recommend sketch book quality paper)
-Electronic device (I recommend a phone or tablet)
Step 1: Choose the right day
According to ancient science, being a lunatic meant your sanity was affected by the position of the moon. I am technically a lunatic, and you can be like this too. What does this have to do with drawing? It seems to me that this can affect artistic abilities. See, some days I draw two or three things and color one or two of them, and that depends if I am inspired or not. Maybe that doesn't have to do with the moon... BUT... Some days I cannot draw if it would save my life. Others, I draw pretty damn good (if I do say so myself). For example, my realistic Trico drawing, or my realistic Toy/Shadow Bonnie drawing, and my recent realistic Withered Bonnie drawing were drawn on the same day. Today, however, I couldn't draw, but I could write two good poems and a six-page-long short story. It depends on the day, so sketch an outline of the thing you want to draw and if it doesn't turn out well, try again tomorrow.
Step 2: Find a picture
If you want to draw picture of a YouTuber or a video game character, etc., then you have to pull up a picture of it. Search the picture you want on your phone, tablet, or computer (preferably something that can be lay flat on a desk or the ground). For practice, just use a picture of your character smiling or sitting. Once you get more advanced, you can do your character hunting, angry, or make up your own pose for it. You would only need a picture of the face (and maybe the body for the shape) if you're doing your own pose.
Step 3: Draw
Set your phone or tablet next to or on the corner of your paper. If you have a computer, have it in front of your paper. This is how it will be easier on a phone or tablet: You just have to glance at your picture as your drawing. This is when peripheral vision comes in handy. Just sketch one thing at a time: focus on one point or part of the picture at a time. I usually start with the nose, but you can start with the body or the head. Be sure to sketch, because erasing can be a bitch if you don't sketch. Make sure your proportions are correct. If you want to shade, I recommend using your pencil at first. Once you have your sketch, refine your lines.
Ta-da! You're done
