It's basically anything from 0 hours to 2 hours. I simply don't have any more time and my wrist can't take it. If I drew 8 hours a day and five days a week, my shoulder would probably protest, too.

Most days it's 0 hours. I really do try to do more but with everything else it's difficult to get free time.

I'm very irregular, but I try to get in at least 2-3 hours a week. If I'm feeling inspired/motivated, I can draw for much longer.

Whenever I can, I usually do half an hour or an hour everyday on the weekdays when I’m in art class at school and on weekends it varies with the school work

I really only once in a blue moon post anything and its less because of art block or cause of very few requests from people as it is I'm just a bad procrastinator. Right this minute I'm off work today and rarely have to work weekends but I don't really do or draw anything on these days. I have tried taking up some new Fanfic projects and getting back to some old ones but as for art work, that I'm still not doing much.

Oh, I would love to draw more, but its really only when I have inspiration. Then I can draw for hours.

During the week I have art to do. So on a day from monday to friday, I will spend three hours for work and then seven hours straight drawing a piece. Then I have to continue on older pieces as well as do all my homework, walk the dogs and yada yada yada. On weekdays I can draw up to half the day straight without any food or water (Not healthy I know but I forget because of my ADHD and bad memory.) Or I spend the day playing video games or playing around with python.

I'm very irregular, spending entire days drawing or not at all, but I guess the average must be about 1h. There are a lot of people drawing a lot daily :o

I wish I could say I draw at the very least an hour a day, but sadly it's rare I get the mood and energy boost to draw, but when I do I usually go until responsibilities or my bed come calling.

7-10h...  I am in art class applied... so i draw 3hours in the morning, 4 hours in the afternoon, then, i work at home approximately 4hours. And sometimes, when I have to make a project for the next day, I draw 7 hours in class and 8 hours at home (i'm too slow when i draw!! >< ). It's very exhausting but it doesn't bother me. I really love what i'm doing!

usually depends on detail for me. A quick drawing like my icon takes about 3 hours but a drawing with detailed scenery usually takes 6 hours. :D

All the sketching together I probably end up at one, but for 'big' drawings I really want to take my time, and since I don't have that during the weekend either, that's saved for the holidays. If I have time then, that is. I just can't draw well when I feel pressure.

I can't keep track, whenever, wherever. I try to carve out at least 1 hour, but I prefer 2 hours in the morning before I head out then have a couple hours in the evening before /I go to sleep. Might be closer to 4-6 hours come to think of it. With school it's very sporadic.

Ever since I started my art class this semester, I'm drawing at least an hour a day

On days where I draw stuff that I eventually post here, I'd say like 4-6 hours.

I do not draw every day, but on normal "drawing days" where I usually draw for a while, it can depend on many hours. but I'd say 2 hours, if it's just calculating it into my daily arts ;u;
that sounded weird, hope you cought my point.. xD

I draw like 6/7 days a week generally, and on days where I have a full day of uni I normally manage 3-4 hours of commission work but at the weekends I can do 12 hours easily xD (even though it might not look like I've been drawing for so long!)

On a good week I can manage one full drawing or some sketches. The average drawing (sketching, lineart, colors) is two hours.
