Not really quick, hehe
4 hours of work...But for me it quite fast
And thanks for the nice comment!
Heey, thanks for the good words about art! Really appreciated!
No, I dont use photo manipulations, but of course I use textures, quite rare though. Yes, I used some texture for rocks, but most of the time I drew them myself, with standart photoshop brushes, and then I just added a texture to create some density, cracks, noise..
Well, I spent 3-4 hours making this piece, I drew it without references, just an imagination So, yeah, actual drawing time is 3-4 hours. It quite fast for me, usually I draw things much more longer than that
