This is my first blog entry, I am very excited to start this blog about myself and my art work. Welcome to my blog and enjoy. :O) How to Draw Realistic Pencil Drawings ~Step 1: Pick out a clear detailed photograph. Chose wisely, no blurry images. Your final drawing results will be very gratifying depending on the quality of the original photograph. ~Step 2: Draw an outline with 2H pencil. Draw it lightly so that if you make a mistake you can erase easily. ~Step 3: This is the fun part. Now you really have to look at the photograph. For example, with a rose pedal, notice every vain on the rose. Notice every flaw of the rose, the more you notice the more realistic your drawing will be. Start with the left corner of the page, so you do not smudge the graphite. You can also put a plain white paper on the section you are not using. When I do pencil portraits, I start with the pupal of the eye and work my way out. ~Work very slow; do not speed.
