- Draw at least 1,000 drawings this year, if you want to improve. That's less than 3 a day, so you can do it.
- Smudge the graphite with your fingers to get a wash effect.
- Some of my best drawings were done with a dull pencil.
- Rarely use the eraser, unless to add an effect.
- Begin with your center of interest, and work outward, with an eye toward balancing the composition.
