I wish I could put as much time into drawing that I did before I had kids. Right now they are on summer holiday so I just try to draw something every day, usually about an hour. When they go back to school I will have 4-6 hours to myself to work on stuff.
On a workday I can only really fit one hour in late night. On a day off, I'm there all day unless I've got something to do. Effective practice and honing in on what I want to improve are the things that make those short stints worthwhile, else I'd be screwed
One mage. One nation. And an entire race's reputation on the line! Vitreous updates with new pages every Monday!
Right now I don't have a "current" comic (watch this space early 2018...) so I've been taking things more relaxed, getting a couple of hours work done most evenings and Sunday afternoons but not always, and worked on collecting ideas and experiencing the world.
This probably just sounds like an excuse (...it might be) but I think there's something to be said for making time once in a while for reading other people's work, visiting museums/art galleries/historic buildings/conventions/whatever inspires you to take notes, and replenishing those creative batteries. Like a kind of artist's sabbatical.
So long as you can get back to work again afterwards ;D
im a lot lazy. i can do everything execpt drawing, for weeks. but when i do... maybe i draw for 2h.
time ago it wasnt by this way. i was drawing without any stop in any moment XD ...so much... that still now i ve got the callus on middlefinger (where the pen press the skin/finger) back in time, that callus was quite huge and hard. now its smaller XD
I don't draw every day so I think I average about 1 hour (though it's more during the holidays), but I want to draw more. I'm honestly amazed people manage to get up to 7 hours in a single day. I don't even think I have 7 hours of free time on a regular day, even when counting random doodles.
