I believed all realistic drawings have is a great contrast and in my opinion this the most important. You need to have a range of your values. Make sure that you preserve your highlights and get in those deep shadows. Then contrast is really gonna elevate your drawing and make it look a lot more realistic.
The second factor that you need to have is actually an accurate sketch a lot of people master the shading and the other stuff but they didn't start with an accurate sketch and so it doesn't look realistic. This is most important when you're doing like anything that has like a specific anatomy like a person or a certain animal. No matter how great your shading is and your colors and how you put them down if you haven't got a good sketch and it isn't accurate then it's just gonna let the whole piece down.
Next is detailing. Realism does mean that you have to have a an amount of detail it doesn't mean that more detail equals more realism because again if you have tons of detail in your artwork but you haven't got a good contrast then no matter how much detail you have is not gonna make up for good contrast. Focus and observe the reference image and pick out all of that detail, what it means is that you need to spend more time focusing and observing your reference image instead of rushing through it.
Color choice is the most important thing when getting a realistic drawing. A lot of people focus so much on making sure that their colors are perfect to the reference image rather than trying to pick colors that have the same sort of value. Picking colors that are dark, It doesn't matter if the color is a slight bit off to what it is on the reference, it's still gonna look realistic even if the colors are slightly changed because of all the details still there. I'm doing black and white on this drawing with graphite and charcoal so I'm only using greyscale and so you don't actually have to worry about this factor. But if you're using color pencils, waters markers anything that has color to it then make sure that you do a color chart so that you're picking accurate colors.
