"No king rules forever, my son" totally didnt cry when he said that (sarcasm) (p.s. I know Arthas' full backstory [its really sad if you dont know it] and i really wanted to be on the side of the scourge in this expansion ;-;)

Hi. You're amazing! If you could take a quick second to answer this, you would honestly change my life: What do I physically need to do during practice, each day, to eventually be able to create something like this?

Can you please break down exactly what one extremely motivated beginner student would need to do, each & every day when he or she sits down to practice, in order to create these incredible photorealistic 2d digital drawing/paintings from my imagination?

I've been trying some stuff, but I still suck!! 

Can you please make me, like, a list?!!!! So I can then go out and explore those topics? Or at least tell me what I need to physically be doing with my practice time? 

If there's any books/DVDs/tutorials, please share!

Thank you for trying to help!

Me encantó esta imágen, reflejando con Frostmourne rota y el Casco de la Dominación lejos de su amo. Genial!!!

If you have the time good sir, would you mind tellin' a novice like myself and the rest of the world, just how long does it take for you to make something such as this ? : ) And i dont want to hear

Well, we have a rather inundating process we go through, in terms of feedback from various stake holders whenever we start a painting.

We go through a thumbnail phase which can be days to weeks long before an idea is decided upon. Then we go through the drawing stage, which usually takes a day or 2. Then we wait for feedback. After it's approved we do a color rough. Send that off and wait for approval. When we get it, then we commence painting, which usually takes 5-6 work days. When it's done, we send it off for approval, and hopefully it's done.

Now-a-days, we cascade projects so we get more done, but measuring how long something takes to complete is a fools errand because it's unpredictable and can at times be exhaustive, and at other times, super quick.

If I just worked through, without the feedback process, maybe a week and half of work time. But because it's never that simple, most projects are measured in weeks, as in around 3, by the time it's done. We deal with a lot of changes throughout the process which can make it so that even a simple piece can sometimes take a lot longer than it would seem.

This one had a lot of feedback, and I did it years ago, but I think it was 3 weeks of work time.
