Ye thanks. The biggest challenge was getting things in the right proportion, like the lips... Those took me 2 hours atleast, and they still dont look as good as I wanted them. Realism, I have realised, cant be rushed. Unlike my other drawings where I would rush them at the and and it would still look professional. This took me 3 days, each day I spent from 1PM - 6PM with a couple of 15 min breaks. I usually draw superheroes or singers, here's an example of my previous drawing of a singer.
Your dedication is really impressive! Any tips? I can't even sit down for an hour to focus on a drawing.

Your drawing is very good! I would say keep experimenting with different techniques (I am not an art student so I don't know specific ones) and use different pencils for shading. Try them all, the B pencils and the H ones - Bs are softer, if I recall correctly and the Hs are harder. Honestly, just keep drawing and you will improve so much by experimenting.

You should post more drawings on this thread in the future

Ye this drawing took 9 hours, the previous one took 13😂😂😂😭. Thank you for the compliment, however I myself am not an art student too. I wanted to be but didnt really like the idea of being told what to draw and what style to draw in. So i just started to teach myself. I used the: 4B, 3B, 2B, 4H and F pencils as those are the ones I could find😂😂.

kadiatuj0001 I usually spread the time over many days, like an hour or 2 a day. But today was Eid, and it's lockdown so I was free all day, so i decided to draw

I have done a lot of drawings in the past, and I have improved massively in the last 3 years. I post all my art on instagram. Idk if i'm allowed to share my insta as it goes against the rules, i think anyway. I draw often, but its in like irregular patterns. Sometimes I draw every week, Then theres a month gap, etc.
