About 13-15 hours, because I was trying out some very different ways of doing backgrounds and shading. And it was a background which I had never really done in full detail before. (An indoor theme.)

I think it's this one

It's my first digital painting and it took more than 24 hours :|

I've spent so much time in it because I have no experience and had some problems with the shading and to pick the right colors... Damn, I have always such a hard time to chose colors :smoking:

To be honest, I don't time how long my drawings take. I never really saw the point of it, unless there was a deadline . . . that being said I think this one took the longest? I just know it felt like awhile, but it was fun to make!

Two weeks, maybe (there was a deadline) of rigorous work? The thing is huge. Like, nearly as tall as I am. My hands were blackened with conte crayon for weeks. :D

This one, definitely. Not helped by the fact that I had to redo the background coloring once thanks to the file becoming corrupt.

About three years, on and off, thanks to false starts, reshaping and painting the face, changing her armour to match the series (instead of a model of her I have), being indecisive about the background....was basically a troubled painting from the start.

This probably took me the longest out of anything in my gallery because of the drawing, inking, colouring and writing. I don't know exactly how long it took me because I would put it down for a long period of time and then come back to it, but I would say more than 30 hours total.

This took forever. Mainly because of the background. I'm naturally a slow artist, regardless of the medium I use, and I'm actually sorta new to Photoshop so it took even longer.
I think i spent anywhere from 24+ hours on it.
