This is the start of a two part tutorial. This part covers off observations you need to make before you really start tackling realism.
Please keep in mind going into this, I'm putting this together because I've been asked repeatedly. I am no expert on realism, I like semi realism but if I could draw photo realistic images, I'd tooooootally be doing that.
The second part is all about putting pencil to paper and actually drawing it. I've completed the drawing itself, taken photos of the process and now just have to put it together.
