You gotta draw from life. Go pick up a book on drawing, I heard that How to Draw from the Right Side of Your Brain is a good one.
There's a buncha books on the subject of sketching, and that one minus the psychokababble is damn fine, but I'd say you'll be wanting to draw from life fer a bit, first, just tah make sure you got yerself some grounding in self-realization to avoid misusing those nifty books like I've seen so many poor motherfuckers do before.
Also I'll be stressin that you want to sketch yerself some life subjects on the same plane of reality as yerself rather then copying some photos. Even if yer sure that you can learn yerself the same amount from each one, the amount of improvement when it comes to value and perspective (compared to, surprisingly, form) that comes with yer real life subjects is damn right fuckin astonishing, yah see?
Fer when it comes to doing the hours, time yerself. Personally I draw for 3-4 hour blocks and time myself using pirate metal albums then break up the monotony with 10 minute break, then git right back fuckin to it!
Ain't no secret tricks to drawing, son. Least none that words can convey.
