This question is in the art discussion because i am directly concerned with the performance and improvement of digital painting and drawing in relation to sleep.
For those of you who (like me) choose to draw or paint instead of sleep on occasion (or perhaps more regularly), what do you find to be the healthiest yet most efficient nightly sleep length?
I could just drink coffee and stay up all night, or try to create some van gogh sleep cycle, but I am curious what a common nights sleep is for concept artists (although all fellow aspiring concept artists are invited to respond, I am mainly concerned with people who are either working, have the skill level to potentially find work in the near future, or are extremely dedicated and working hard at drawing and painting on a DAILY basis.)
I sleep 8 hours a night usually, because somewhere i heard that was the healthy number. I am getting a month off of school and considering switching to 6 hours per night and adding more time to my practice.
if this question has already been asked... sorry.
