    So...how long do you work on a sketch?

    Hey,

    How long do you work on a sketch? On average of course! I just want to find out if I work slow.

    Cheers!

    I'm not small, I'm efficiently packed!

    There's no time limit, just work on something untill you're comfortable with it.

    Sometimes not long enough, others, too long. Sept13 hit it right...Just kill it, overkill is okay, but underkill is not

    i´ve once finished one in 20 seconds with anatomy , expression n stuff,, i also worked 3 hours on an illustration sketch with character in it , perspective lines,
    n so on..

    i try to work not more then 10 minutes on a single character sketch ,
    lifedrawing sketches , i keep under 10 minutes , the hard part for me is when it comes too rendering.. trying realistic rendering consumes my hours( and still doesn´t match).

    i need 45 minute sto finish my meal , and take 7min in the shower. how bout you ?

    aviable for fulltime and freelance

    work on a sketch until the image you wish to display is fairly clear and sutably outlined. this depends on the image, the size, the complexity.. its always different. but keep in mind that it is a SKETCH.. so if you're getting into hours, you've gone way too far.

    most of my sketches take a few minutes. - JAG

    it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..

    Hehe same man, thats where music comes in handy.

    Take your time. learn to get it right first before working on speed.
    Speed seems to be pretty important in the industry though, with deadlines and all that jazz.

    it really depends if you mean a sketch or a drawing. sketch a few minutes, just to get the idea down. a drawing can be as long as it needs to be.
