It all really depends on if I know where I want to go with a piece. If it's something simple like one of my character sheets it can take as little as 2 hours. For a more complicated piece, it can take anywhere from a few days to a year. I stop alot and look at a piece with a fresh eye before just rushing into finishing it. What I would suggest if you find yourself anxious to just complete a piece is to put it down and work on something else, a doodle or something. That way you can come back to the piece you were working on and possibly see something you want to enhance or to change.
Depends on how distracted I am On a good day my timetable's like this;
1.) Watch Pewdiepie videos for inspiration- 1 hour 2.) Plan out the fna-art in my head- 0.5 hours 3.) Draw the line-art on pain and colour- 0.45 hours 4.) Draw background on Artweaver- 0.45 hours 5.) Add shading to my foreground- 0.20 hours 6.) Layer both peices together to finish it.
Um, I take about 1- 2 hours when I draw. The thing is; if i haven't finished a drawing by 2 hours; I usually take a break so that my eyes don't hurt. I don't rush my drawings; it's just that colouring doesn't take that long. I usually have a longer time with sketching.
Well, I've been trying to work on my foundations to improve on simple pieces before I do a really large and complicated piece. So my range is from 4 hours to 15 hours that would spread over 2-5 days. (; I'm crossing my fingers, hope I'll plan out a large project that'll take up to 30 hours.
Probably a few hours - I think the longest I spent on a piece was maybe 6-7 hours. This is spread across however many days it takes depending on what else life has goin' on for me - my newest piece took maybe 4 hours across three days since I'm on break, but I can go months working for like an hour or two here and there when I've got exams goin' on or something like that.
Depends on how finished I need it to look. Sketches are done after 30 mins, while detailed work is closer to 4 hours. Rarely, when I need an extreme polish to a piece, I would take longer, but I find it hard to spend days on one work. I prefer to work fast and painterly.
It's days for me. I usually have 2-3 drawings I'm working on and after drawing for an hour or two on one piece, I might just start working on the other piece. I get bored easily. Most of the time I feel like I could just keep going, keep on adding things and details. So I usually just end up settling and thinking that I've already spent countless hours on this one, it's time to finish it up XD I've given up on a drawing a couple of times as well, then maybe months or even a year later I find it in my folder at decide to keep on working on it and eventually finish it.
Depends on the detail and size, is there a background, multiple objects etc. Some take 3-4 hours, others take days. i do think I work a little slow though or over analyze it a bit lol. Especially when choosing the colors. But its gotten a little better with time.
for my traditional work anywhere from 1 to 5 hours, though i can bust out a speed scetch in 10min and it doesnt look to bad...but i dont do a lot of detail...i will get back to you on digital, cause i am just begining
I often make sketches in an hour or less. But my more serious digital works often take days to make. I don't mind, though. I have limited drawing abilities with my arm anyway, so I've learned to be patient
A pretty heavy case of repetitive strain injury. I had several inflammations on joins in wrists and elbow. And although my condition did get better than it was, it's still heavily damaged, and the damage is most probably permanent.
I'm not sure, as I never experienced a carpal tunnel syndrome. But as I can read, the feeling is a bit different, and there's no such thing as an operation that could help you recover. So I'd say it's not exactly the same.
If I'm only counting the actual hours I'm working on something, and not the breaks in between, probably about 2 to 6 hours, depending on complexity. Counting breaks though, I can usually finish a piece under a day's time.
Traditional works might take me a maximum of 10 hours, usually just 5-7. I work for 1-3 hours at a time.
Digital works, believe it or not take more time, usually take me at least 15-20, and often more.
I work in huge 8-10 hour blocks were all I do is paint and just become completely absorbed until somebody snaps me out of it so I can eat. I've been trying to work at least once a week, but I used to only work maybe once a month so pieces would take forever. Sometimes I go crazy and work 3 days straight. It depends what mood I'm in.
depends on the digital painting but anywhere from 5hrs -20hrs, maybe 5-8 hrs a day if im working on something. then maybe 1-2 days on it. but it really depends on what im doing. More involved stuff takes longer.
traditional paintings, are more like 12-30hrs(depending on the size and what im doing again) and it will take me a week to do one, working on it for 4-8 hrs a day depending on how im feeling.
i work on and off due to distractions, which i'm weak against. each day i am able to work around 3-4 hours i think and one picture will take me about a week. i need to work faster and without distractions but this is hard nowadays.
The last one I did was A5 sized and it took me well over an hour to complete. Cartoony with some coloring, but minimal shading. I think it would have taken even longer had I not been on deadline. It's shocking how long it takes to draw cartoons sometimes.
If I'm going extremely quickly I can do a page in about a half hour, but the results have no details or coloring.
Yea you know its funny I ask this question and I remember my professor telling us about his friend and how he makes professional designs at about 3 hours each just pooping them out daily. He just sits at his desk at work and creates work so fast...and I don't know if I could believe it or no to be quite honest. He also mentioned that his friend is the guy who created the "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" logo. Crazy.
