if u are already a good drawer(that means every one tells you so) then practice...draw harder things like people BUT if ur bad then...sorry u don't have the talent:( look for another hobby sumting ur actually GOOD at
try drawing what you see. I know thats no help. just try really looking at it. say if you were drawing a house, dont think of it as a house look at it, pick somewhere to start drawing from and just draw exactly what you see. I know it doesnt sound like great advise but it works (:

You'll have to take courses that teach you how to draw. Make sure you go for beginner's classes before advanced. If you don't want to take classes there are books that offer some drawing knowledge. Before you draw you'll have to know the basics lie drawing shadows, values, etc. Study drawings and objects if you are doing still life as much as you can so you know exactly how to draw it. And to top it off, make sure to practice and to draw! Keep paper near you or a sketchbook and practice whenever you have free time. Practice makes perfect;)
If you are trying to get better at drawing, I find that taking a photo and drawing 1inch square grid on it then transferring it to a larger paper and making a grid say 2inches (this is the one you'll be drawing on) then your able to draw it better according to the lines. knowing each start, curve and end!
eat pork while you draw, it helps LOT. im dead serious. just try it. it helps your hands become more steadier and helps you focus and imagine your drawing more. alot of famous artist do this i read about it on a blog.
Dont force it! Draw what you are comfortable with in your own style.If you like drawing apples,dont let someone tell you to draw an orange.Art is about individuality above all.Try looking at impressionism,it is a great art form.
Classes don't help. Just read manga--believe it or not, it really does help because you absorb the natural proportions of the body while you do it, but there is still flexibility to it so that you really understand the human body. BTW, don't watch anime. You need to be looking at the still pictures. It took me about 3 years before I finally truly understood the human body; I started drawing in 6th grade. Most important, establish guidelines that you will always follow. This especially applies to people. If you know that the shoulders should be as wide from neck to joint as the width of your head from temple to temple, then that is the way you should draw it, even if it doesn't feel exactly right. Also, looking at pictures upside down helps you see if the anatomy/balance is correct.
I was never in a special art class. I learned all I know from how to draw books. Before you check them out or buy them look inside. Some how to draw books are not worth your time or money. Always start small. Don't stop drawing because others say you are bad or good. Drawing for fun can be a good practice too, you don't want hate to your passion.
You have to really OBSERVE. If you think something you drew is really bad, think of what it would actually look like. Shade in dark spots and leave out light spots. It depends which side the light is coming from. If there is an object, the side that the light isn't shining on should definitely be much darker, and leave a shadow.
"Practice Makes Perfect" carry a pocket-sketch book with you where ever you go and try to draw things that you like, it doesn't matter if you didn't get it right the first time, keep trying, and keep observing, drawing is all about observation and recognizing what can be done to make the this line I'm drawing the same as the shape of the matter that I'm laying my eyes on. Keep trying and you'll be the best in no time.
