Ever wondered how artist draw those SO real pictures ??-  how do they do it, what do
they use and do they use a tablet,
NO WORRIES !! - you can draw like  that in moments , all it takes is
TIME-PRACTICE-SELF ESTEEM- - although i may not be good at drawing realism, i still
know how artists draw realism !here are some questions they may have altered some

Which tools do they use for realism?-

These are 5 they use for realism- pen,watercolour,airbrush,dodge and soft tool

HOW TO USE PEN - Put the pen tool to "curve" - NEVER do freehand, as it will
result to give a "pixely" effect - artists use the pen tool to make the base colour
and lineart- it helps alot...just remember to use it wisely

HOW TO USE WATERCOLOUR - Use this tool to go over the "pen colour" base, put
it on 10-9 pix. thickness , go over the base in a darker colour- it will stand out
and look more perspective- once again put it on curve

HOW TO USE AIRBRUSH- Go over the watercolour base, this time do it around the
watercolour and in a darker shade- do a darker shade again in watercolour

HOW TO USE DODGE AND SOFT- These tools are VERY helpful - use the dodge and it on a
very soft style- like 100-50 %- same with the soft tool - use the dodge to use on the
forehead,cheeks and a little on the lips. use the soft tool to blend colours together
and make it look "3D" -

How do they draw so good ! ?

Practice practice practice thats all ! ^^ 
Artists use  a lot of time practicing how to draw really amazing pics, your lucky if
you have photoshop X) *i don't ;_;*
BUT hey if you don't have a tablet, you can still draw just as good with a mouse !

PERSPECTIVE LINES,SHADES AND SHINES- Our eye views things differently than we
perceive. As we observe an object, our eyes scan the circumference of the object and
our brains connect the images to complete the image. This is why drawing an object
accurately is difficult for many. Sometimes, a different approach is helpful when
drawing an image, an approach that renders something much more accurate and true to
E.G_ Let's take a tree as an example. When one observes a tree, our eye scans the
trunk, the leaves, the colors, the patterns of shadow, but we seldom observe the
details. This has to do with the brain' s tendency to provide closure to the object.

I really hope this tutorial helped you in drawing realism- i suggest you do realism
on paper first, just to Get a head shot- cause it may be hard drawing realism first
