Like it.

What's your time frame on a sketch like this, John?

Hi Steve...as usual the time frame for creating something is broken into 2 separate parts...the sourcing of what you want to draw, paint, or write, can sometimes be quick, as in an inspiration from something else that makes a lightbulb go off in your head, or it can take much longer as in the labor involved in going out and shooting pics, or composing a picture in another manner...

Once I've found something to draw, (which can sometimes take much longer than the drawing process itself) then that's when the true fun begins. This particular sketch didn't take very long. I guess you could say the sketch was inspired by an idea to see how quickly I could render the basic elements needed to create it. Maybe 15 or so minutes of concentrated effort...
