No matter what type of art you're into, the main thing you need to do is to be consistent in working at it.

For instance, if you're drawing something, work on it a little bit each day, even if it's just for 5 minutes. There were many days when I just didn't feel like working on this portrait of John Lennon, but I did it anyway.
By being consistent in making progress on the drawing, I was able to finish it in a month -- I know that's still a long time, but it took a lot less time than any of my previous drawings.

Hope this helps! :)

You should upload more of your drawings, because you're really good. Not that your other art ain't good, I like the photos and stuff :P But you have so less drawings in compare to your other work !

I haven't uploaded any more drawings because I don't really have very many. I plan to be doing a lot of drawing next year though; I have something specifically planned to do then, so there will be plenty more. :)

By the way, thanks for the deviantWatch!

I'm not saying that you would, it's just that I can never be too cautious when it comes to protecting my art. :paranoid: Or maybe I'm just paraniod...:shrug:

Same here.
I know people want to protect their art and all, but you can't be too cautious of it (unless you just print it all over the art work...)

I used pencil; a 2B 0.5mm mechanical pencil, to be precise.

I used a 2B mechanical pencil with a 0.5 mm lead, and it took me about a month to complete (I worked on it for about 30 minutes each day).

Aye. I find that part quite hard. I know how smooth it comes out depends on the paper and the pencil used (or how black you're willing to make your fingers. :D ), but it still seems like one of the more difficult parts of pencil work.
