- How long does an average piece take you to complete?
it varies from piece-to-piece depending on the composition and complexity.
Prints usually take me around 2-3 days just because I work on such a huge scale and theres a lot of small shit to tweak.
As far as commissions go: Headshots/busts take me just about 2-3 hours each while (unarmored) fullbodies take me around 4-5 uninterrupted.
The longest part of my process is always sketching and takes up at least a third of the time spent on a piece. Once I have a decent base-sketch made though, I just space-out and line/color is just zen to me lol.
- For digital artists: how many layers does a typical piece require?
I give literally everything it’s own layer and end up having to group my layers like this so i dont have to scroll ENDLESSLY to find specific layers.
My recent wrathion drawing was 70+ layers because im an idiot.
If youre interested in studying how to group your layers better or just want to see more of how I set up my digital pieces and how to break them down: I offer full .PSD files for study to 10$ patrons on my patreon.
