How can I get better at drawing?

Practice helps improve any skill, but you could try some lessons on art. There are books out there and some online sites with free help. Hub Pages has some articles right here with art tips.
Your drawing is not bad at all. You should learn anatomy, measure the eyes distance to the nose, the space between the nose and mouth, mouth to chin, etc. Also when drawing lines like hair, which is difficult to do, you must remember to start with pencil down on paper and do NOT lift up until you finish the line. From one end to another, it should be one continuous flowing motion.
When you've mastered the skill of anatomy, then you can more on to shading, light, etc. Learn where your shades are. i can see you have the shading on the hairline down, behind the neck, etc. You could use more on the cheeks. Learn to smear your pencil with your fingers for added dimension and shade, don't just press the lead on paper.
Some pencils will smear better than others. But you can achieve this with a pen if you're good by making tinier lines close together and criss crossing over each other like a mesh/fence style.
Go online, go on youtube, there are many artists there who will show you.
Another good tip; find a model. If you're into doing human faces, copy from a picture and really look at it, watch the shades, the lights, the shines of the eyes, and remember the paper is white, so that's your shine already. Draw around it with dark and leave the white untouched for your shine.
The smallest of details will make the biggest difference. Good luck!
There is no right or wrong when it comes to art and drawing. If you are not satisfied with your drawing, keep drawing it over, or do another face, the more you draw the better you will be. I have some suggestions for the drawing shown: The nose could be a little longer. The proportion or space from the nose to the mouth should be less...look at people and see how much space there actually is. The mouth/lips are usually easier to draw when closed, much more difficult when teeth are shown. The shape of the eyes, eyebrows, chin are good. It all depends on the look you are trying to achieve. You are the artist, just some suggestions.
Practice, Practice, Practice. In terms of drawing people, the biggest tip I found most useful was to learn to understand the structure of the face and the body, understand the anatomy of the human body and when you are drawing you will draw what makes sense. Try keep your eye on the person rather than your drawing. 70% of the time you should be looking at what you are drawing and 30% looking at the sheet, trust your eye and your pencil will follow. I would also recommend mixing it up, dont continuously draw the one thing. If you are drawing people mix between young and old,male or female, long hair or short hair etc.. Hope I've helped even slightly. Your drawing is not bad by the way, many would love to be able to draw like that.
I also have to agree that practice is your best tool. Not every style is going to be the same, but refining your skills will go a long way towards putting out a product you're truly proud of. That goes for every artistic endeavor, whether it's drawing, writing, or graphic design. If you keep at it, and work hard, you'll look back at your older work and be pleasantly surprised by how far you've come.
practice with real objects by drawing just the shape. such as a head is a circle, a chest and torso a triangle pointed to a pelvis which is a cirle(ish). then go on to darken the major features with bold lines and finally add some shadow in for depth and detail I find cross hatching and smudging the best when starting out.
I hope this helped I'm better at showing then telling lol
you're just like me! exercise more...feel the power of art،Go to Class Painting
Honesty, I've been drawing since I was a lot younger and it's pretty good but not the best, but some ways you can improve your drawing techniques is to practice and since I grew up drawing cartoon I obviously don't have much technique with drawing realistic things and I got a book for that and you could try that also. Something else I did to improve my drawing was to focus on a area (like eyes, mouth, nose, hair, etc) and keep drawing those until had improved and then I would work with the rest and it help me draw anime things better. I also took time for drawing my picture (1-5 hours or less) to fix up anything I had messed up on and lastly I would try and draw harder things or something out of my range sometimes, these are ways that I improved my drawing technique
Not bad, just a little more work on the chin and make more alignment of your eyes. Really, just a little more practice. Don't give up. That's a good start. Don't be discouraged. You will have 'good' images and then images that need a lot more work. Train your natural eye to see more correctly, perspective, line, contour, depth, shaping, contrast of light and shaded areas! If you are serious about drawing better, check out information on the web, that offers visual lessons you can follow. There are many artists that have different levels of learning Art in Learning to 'Draw'. Your best work, is when you are comfortable of what you are doing and like doing it. So, 'Be Happy'!
You should get the right material for drawing. Sketch pad and art crayons. Then buy an instruction book to provide pointers and think of setting in on a course at the local schools if you have one available. Loosen up and learn to hold the pencil or crayon loosely.

Do you think it's disingenuous to trace images used in drawings and paintings?Many people posting art instruction type hubs will direct the reader to trace an image to be used in a certain art project or painting. I've always wondered if this wasn't a bit fraudulent. Shouldn't the artist draw...
