A Little Bit Each Day
Not very good (yet!!) but all my stuff is updated daily here (flickr but I will update THIS thread directly weekly or more often, daily if I can):
I am very new to this stuff but I am pretty consistent. I am really just starting out but I sketch 10 minutes everyday and have been uploading to flickr basically everyday but sometimes in batches (that's why some of the work seems to be of mixed quality and out of sync).
I think 10 minutes is way too short. I'm going to aim for 15-20 minutes minimum and I think I do my best and get lost easily when I do stuff from life (or master copies).
I will continue to use flickr because it is so easy to just pull out my phone take a picture and be done with it. But I will update this once a week with some of the stuff from there.
I have a lot to learn, I know I am weak in many areas.. don't be shy . I think my new stuff needs some more dedication.
I like this one.. it was done a while back (relatively, I like pens over pencil. The masters always amaze me). :

Looking good so far. But it would be nice if you could post the images here, links are so tiresome.
In any case, 20 minutes sounds better. 10 minutes pass oh so quickly. I find that listening to music I like makes me a lot more absorbed in drawing.

Thank you for the quick response and wisdom nugget. I will try to update here as often as I can.

hi there, pretty nice start.
I think a good step would be to leave out your shading for a while because that has a tendancy to cover up mistakes. It also stimulates you to improve your lines in general. the less lines, the better. Try to think more about the structure beneath it, how the head sits on the neck etcetera.
