I got this pretty quickly, but I always play a stealthy game! For picking locks, go to towns and wait (or rest) 'til night when many front doors are locked. Go up to a door, crouch and make sure no-one is watching (ie; you are hidden) and pick the lock on the door. Rinse and repeat 50 times.

For picking pockets, go up to a solitary character, crouch and make sure you are hidden, press 'A' to pick the pocket. Now wait... look at the text below the image of the item you are about to pick, make sure the success % is high; my minimum limit in 80%; I ignore items (unless they are really valuable) that have less than 80% success probability. If it succeeds, save the game. Now attempt the pick pocket process again on the character. It's important you only pilfer one item at a time. Once you run out of easy items to steal, move to another victim.
