When we think of realistic portraits, we usually imagine those created by professional artists. However, the truth is that the average person can do it too. All you need is a bit of practice and the right tools.
Tricks like looking into mirrors and drawing from photographs are not going to cut it. You need to go to a live model and observe them carefully, as well as getting all the details right.
The following tips will give you a head start on creating realistic portraits of your own.
1. Use watercolor pencils: These are pencils that have a water color effect once applied on an art piece. Although they look complicated to use, they are actually quite easy because they blend well with each other and really help create great effects when shading is involved.
2. Practice and experiment with colors: Colors play an important role in realistic portraits hence you need to experiment with them until you find that perfect shade that complements your subject well. Also take time to practice your art skills and find out which colors go well together too so as to achieve better effects in your art pieces.
3. Use light source: Lighting plays an important role in realistic portraits hence you should always use natural light sources such as the sun or a lamp rather than artificial ones

How to paint a realistic portrait? How to draw realistically? Many people wish to learn how to draw realistic portraits. And I believe it should be easy.
The secret of drawing realistic portraits lays on the accurate reproduction of the smallest details, even the most subtle ones. In fact, in order for your drawing to look real, you must strictly follow all the anatomical and physical characteristics of the person you’re drawing.
Your drawing will only be as good as the time you devote to it. Always remember that if you want to paint a realistic portrait, you have to dedicate more time than if you were painting an abstract one.
What is more important: anatomy or gesture? For me, gesture is crucial. It’s what gives life and expression to your painting. There’s nothing worse than a portrait without gestures and facial expressions!
Realistic art is a style of art that attempts to accurately depict the subject, including the detailed and distinguishing features of a person. The result is often a portrait that resembles the subject in both expression and appearance, and may therefore be used as an image of the person.
This style is generally associated with European art, especially that of the 16th and 17th centuries, but realistic portraits are found in all cultures, including Chinese portraiture beginning in the Tang dynasty (618–907).
Realism in art was developed by the Baroque period, notably by Caravaggio (1571–1610), who employed startlingly realistic technique to portray subjects—including religious ones—that were usually depicted idealistically until then. This revolutionary approach to art was quickly picked up by other artists, notably Rembrandt (1606–69) and Velázquez (1599–1660). Some realists focused on depicting one part of a subject, such as Alfred Wahlberg’s (1864–1922) “photographic” depiction of eyes.
