Longer than a week because I suck at drawing right now lol.

I think it depends on what i am working on...but when it comes to nice pieces, probably a week and then some.
I take forever trying to make things perfect. and seeing as i only have either after work or before work and the weekend to work on something, things can drag. i can spend hours trying to make one bit perfect. i think i take too long. just need to work smarter i guess.

depends on how i've been thinking about it and if i have a deadline. things with deadlines usually take somewhere between 3 hours to 2 days.

Depends on the piece, and on my schedule ^^;

Most usually pieces will very between 4-7 hours, but there are some that take 10+ hours (those I usually play with an hour at a time for a few days, sometimes weeks).

It depends on the piece, really. More detailed ones take longer, simpler ones don't take as long... but roughly a work day? A little more? I guess it also depends on the size of it. I've worked on large pieces in traditional media that I had to work on over the course of days/weeks, but I didn't work on them all day due to other obligations. :shrug:

Comics work has trained me to think that if I'm spending more than a full day on a single page, I'm working too slow or over-working the piece and probably sapping it of is vitality and dynamism. Not necessarily true of every piece, of course, but I really want to train myself to work fast as a point of professional necessity.

Also, I get impatient and fear I'll never finish a piece if I take too long. I admit, I'm a bit of an attention hound, and I can't wait to post my work online... :/

around 3-6 hours but that's cuz I just draw faces and rarely bother drawing the whole body\background..etc orz I wish I could have your determination in finishing artworks :heart:

Most of my projects take over a year.
Because I'm a lazy motherfucker and don't usually take any art classes.

What do you mean by "producing" the art? You mean uploading it to DA.

About 1 hour. I do get bored easily.
