I've chosen "weekly", but to tell the truth, I've just started. I had a massive art block for a few years.

if i can't draw for more than 12 hours (i lose my sketchbook, am out and about an forgot it at home, ect) i legit start having withdrawals xD
GaloCuevas Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I often draw between 10:00 pm and 4:00 am (I know it ain't right, but I love it).

Ideas come to me at that time.
I usually draw in class, with friends, in the evening and right before bedtime :). All day everyday

I practice drawing in my free time, mainly whenever i'm bored or I just feel like it.

I try to draw every day, if I'm at work I draw on my breaks helps clear my mind. I also am working on average 6 different pictures at any given time so when I'm not feeling one I work on another.

I started drawing daily or almost daily from 1 year. I need constance with drawing to improve my skills. And when I have spare time I paint with watercolors or acrylics :)
GreenTeaMelody Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2016
I used to draw daily but with life being so busy now that's turned to weekly or every few weeks :(
LadyCat17 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2016   Traditional Artist
from weekly to montly. When real life slams against your face.. It's a bit more complicated to do stuff. :)

Well at least in my case,  I get back from work so tired .. I draw less and less  :(

But when I have the chance, i enjoy it so much! :)
Depends on how I feel. I make something for DeviantArt about once every 10 days (according to my DA stats) but I doodle every day now that I'm back at school (but they don't go onto DeviantArt)

I wouldn't say its actual pieces of art per day but its more or less like a sketch of something (anime XD) or a study of a hand, pose, technique, blending, hair, etc.
zolelie Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2016  Student General Artist
I used to draw constantly every single day for years, then I stopped completely for a few years and more recently I've started with a few sketches every month or so with some finished works scattered around the year. No idea why I changed, I was just suddenly unhappy with the work I was producing and it's taking a good while to get back into liking it again.

I think it has to do with moods changing, life getting busy, losing interest in certain things that used to be inspiring, etc.

Whenever I feel like it, really.
vishnuEIN Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Before this, I don't do drawings more often, but after getting inspired by Cyarin, Artgerm, Sakimi Chan, David Lojaya, Jazza and Paris Christou, I purchased a Pen Tablet, and started drawing, for 8 Months I did drawing weekly, now I draw on a daily basis. Thanks to all the artists..
TheAnticDealer Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2016  Student Digital Artist
To be honest, I have no specific schedule or anything really.
It's just that I have no time to make art and it will be unlikely when I will make new content in the future.

It can be tomorrow, it can be anytime... as long as I have time to do so :P
Bink18 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I try hard to draw every day, but sometimes I get so frustrated with my art that I get art block and don't draw for a while. But I have noticed a change, like now compared to maybe two or three years ago, still not as good as I wish it would be, but still better than it was. I think I just get frustrated with drawing people, horses I have no problem with though.

Every. Single. Day.

At work daily, but it's pretty repetitive stuff. At home less than once a month though I've been trying to change that lately.
stjarnor Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2016  Student General Artist
I used to churn out several pieces a week, but since working to improve the quality of my art, I now do maybe one a month (max probably 3 a month). I'm now trying to do something every day, even if it's just sketching for a few minutes!!
gunboats Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2016
sometimes i draw weeks apart, but the day i start drawing again i do like at least 3 artworks the same day lmao

i don't draw so often nowadays....imagination block. all i got now are ideas for a hentai =v
xNarttu Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016  Student Filmographer
During school and for a little bit after finishing high school (in 2005) I was creating something at least every other week.  Since then I've had little spurts here and there where I've drawn or pixeled almost obsessively for days or weeks at a time, with months and sometimes years in between spurts.  
I really want to create something or work on something every day, but after battling depression and anxiety for 15 years now I have a really hard time getting and staying motivated to be creative.
It's something that I really want to continue working on, because art is one of few things that make me truly happy :)
Joshua-Mozes Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I draw daily, but im not publishing everything (sometimes it's crap I made). I try to upload weekly.  I'm lazy...
thalle-my-honey Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I used to post something here weekly, but since some time I just sketch into my books and don't really make anything special to upload here.
VengefulGinger Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I used to draw every day but here recntly I've just lost all inspiration. Even with that I still manage a piece a month but none of them are good enough by my standards to do anything with.
TheDarkArtist86 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2016  Student Traditional Artist
I try to draw whenever I can or whenever I have inspiration to draw. I would like to draw more often, but that is a problem more so of me finishing my work.

I don't post my artwork, i honestly don't like them at all and when i see others people work... i just can't :c and i stopped drawing for a long time,but i'll finally start posting.
ShineSpriite Featured By Owner May 27, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
As much as i wish it was weekly, the answer is more realistically monthly. I get lazy easily. So i need to get the ball rolling or else it'll stagnate and stop moving. It's a cycle. Gotta break it.
sopheony Featured By Owner May 27, 2016  Student General Artist
Sadly I make less art than I used to in the past. There were days when I was drawing all day without a break and it felt so good! Now that I graduated and moved a few years ago I am not always able to sit down and "art". Not just because I haven't enough time but because I don't like my art. I mean, if I look back to my old drawings, I feel that they are different from what I do now. And it makes me kind of sad sometime. But now we're in the middle of a moving (again haha) and I will have my own room as well like the old days back then, so I plan to sit down and do more and more art!

5 billion times. Every. Single. Day. Art is the basic reason I'm still alive and not in therapy or mental school's.
Tinlorio Featured By Owner May 26, 2016  Hobbyist
I dedicated much of my time lately to finishing Uni (huge art block too), but recently getting back into practicing my drawing skills. I used to draw almost everyday, but now I'll probably spawn a couple sketches once a month. 
Farbeneath Featured By Owner May 25, 2016  Student General Artist
I try to draw daily but I'm so bad at it. I want to get faster so I opened an Instagram where I can post sketches to help me try and reach that goal. We'll see how it goes. I only post on deviantart 2-3 times a month though. I'm so slow. 
Wysto Featured By Owner May 25, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I used to draw at least one sketch a day, but now i barely draw one a week..

I think i lost it over the years, because i stopped trying to narrate stories, i didn't maintain my imagination.
Chibi-ChanDraws Featured By Owner May 24, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Even though I only really upload 2-3 times a week (During the weekend when I have access to the computer I draw on), I still draw pictures on paper during class and when I'm bored everyday! :D

normally daily or every two days but recently i have a shitty art block :/

i did a full year of daily sketches last year. that was fun. and stressful  :dignity-laugh: 
Szczurzyslawa Featured By Owner May 19, 2016  Student General Artist
I used to daily but since I'm in art school I barely have time to ever so... sweet irony
mixedfiction Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2016
oh, does it suck?
Szczurzyslawa Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2016  Student General Artist
both yes and no. I enjoy what we're doing as assigments but all my personal projects are like dead
mixedfiction Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2016
oh, ok. so what exactly do you take up? are there specializations?
Szczurzyslawa Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2016  Student General Artist
There will be from 2nd year and forward (here you need like 5 years to get Master's degree). Our whole thing is Media Art and then you can choose Photography and multimedia or something that translates to drawing media but it sounds silly in English like I have no idea how to translate it. On the first specialization you get of course lots of photography, intermedia, performance art, graphic design, and all kinds of modern art stuff, while on the second one, which I've chosen, you also get graphic design and some photography later on, but also lot of basic academic drawing  and painting classes, animation and all the good stuff, with more focus on your craft and skill rather than just fancy ideas. We all also have to attend pedagogics, psychology, voice emission, and some modern language classes. And of course history of art aaaand we all have to go to schools and stuff like that 'coz of obligatory apprenticeships in teaching field. No one here really wants to be a teacher but it's like a thing here hah, maybe they're afraid that we won't get any job so at least be prepared to teach some kiddos. 

And like it all is just one huge repeat for me since I was in art junior/high school for 6 years, so I already am an "artist" with diploma in graphics stuff but yeah... Since higher education here is free for everybody (tho you gotta have super high scores on your finals or pass entring exam) most of ppl go there, it's expected and if you don't have some sort of higher education you're like total loser since it can only mean your scores were so low no university wanted you. Like in 'murica it's normal not to go to uni or college since it costs your friggin life money and it's normal for ppl to just go to work after HS... but not here. 
mixedfiction Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2016
(sorry for late reply! was busy)

Oh, I see. It's different depending on where you are. I've never heard of apprenticeships stuff here... let alone "art schools". But there are art courses in college; you can choose Painting, or Advertising, or Multimedia, somethin like that, but nothin specializing in animation (i think). O ya, the 2nd one's all the good stuff. Wow, you sure take a lot of stuff. "at least be prepared to teach some kiddos" haha XD

So, is it normal to find art schools there or they're just not rare? Do they teach the same stuff in ur art junior/high school? (I went to normal high school.) Higher education free?! Wow. So this higher ed is the 5yr thing? "like total loser" lol. Ya, in the US their high school is enough to get to work. They have more no. of HS yrs, don't they? "costs ur friggin life money" lol again!

Big thanks for all the info! Rly helps cause I'm weighing what i'm gonna do. :)
Szczurzyslawa Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2016  Student General Artist
Hah here you normally go to elementary school at age 6 or 7 for 6 years, then 3 years of junior high then 3 years of high school or 4 years of technical school (you can work after that school, usually as hairdresser, fixing cars, electrician, chef etc). My school was special 'coz it was 6 years of junior and high together - it was one school (when usually it's 2 separate things). You don't get art elementary schools but you have elementary music schools what is intresting. Then you can choose normal junior high or the one with specialization like math/physics or french (then you have lot of subjects in french, it's terrible xD like math gosh help me). But there's no junior highs with art or music. If you wanna start so early you go to weird non-typical school like ours (it's different 'coz it's from culture department and not education one). Usually you can choose art school only when you go to high school (or if not art, then math and physics or polish, history and whatever, or chemistry and biology. it usually goes in special segments together, but sometimes you can choose subjects you wanna earn in high school on extended level 'coz everybody have their basics anyway. Like I chose math, informatics and english and we had obligatory history of art). Sometimes art high schools are only 3 years, like normal ones, then you have less art and it's more like normal high school, ot it's technical art school -4 years- and you have more subjects.
So, in school like ours, where you get 6 years, you also can work after something like that (like after technical school); our school and 4 year technical art schools have like lots of stuff going on, academic drawing, painting, sculpture, graphic design, basics of animation, sometimes it's creamics, sometimes you learn how to make stained glass, we had jewelery, wood and metal works and graphics and now they added photography. After 4 or in our case 6 years you have to do diploma and pass history of art exam and also write theoretical paper and like defend your diploma and stuff. And of course you have to pass finals/matura which determines if you have chances to go to any university. After 3 years normal school but with art stuff you only have drawing lessons and some history of art, you don't do diploma, just pass matura. 
Then you can choose where you wanna go when it comes to art. We have like everything - usual academic drawing, or painting, or sculpture, or advertising, or photography, we have super hella cool scary neat film school but it doesn't have legit animation, just special effects and doll animation, media art, graphic design, communication design, industrial design, design in general xD, and many many more. Pll from abroad can come here too through Erasmus or just because they wanna, like we end our high school when we're 19, but we have girls from Ukraine and Belarus who ended their school at age 17 so they're so much younger xD but it's totes fine. So yeah hah~
We have like everything here a part of legit animation-only school/university stuff, like Cal arts in US owh. A part of that you can do anything here hah. 
And when it comes to higher ed you can go or only to licentiate stuff, it's only 3 years, and then if you wanna to get masters, it's then 2, or you can go to 5 years and you have no stress passing licenciate but if you give up after like 4 years then you get no papers so uh. Also it's super rare to fing 5 year thing here, it was more popular in the past. I would go to licenciate thingy but there was no intresting stuff for me, and only in masters courses and without licenciate you can't go straight to master so xD" I wanted to go into designing games, but all game design is on 2-year master thing so I need to have another degree before that. I liked media art and it was 5 year so I went there. So if I go to game design after that I will have 3 masters xD
Also it goes like licenciate>masters>doctor>habilitation>(full) professor
When you get to be professor, the persident himself gives you your papers and it's rly big thing, 'coz you gotta do whole lot to become one. You usually can't be professor before 50 and it's super young to be prof at this age anyway. 
Liceniate is probably like Bachelor in english. 
So after masters you can get the doctor thing, but man, it's some work xvx and worth only if you wanna become research felllow (it sounds stupid in english, in polish it translates like science worker "D).
Licenciate (BA) and masters are here like proffesional/job titles while doctor and professor are like science-university degrees idk it's weird xvx

elementary school, 3 yrs junior + 3 yrs senior high, ok got it. elementary music schools, really? interesting, u said it. "Usually you can choose art school only when you go to high school" oh, bingo! so sometimes art high schools are only 3 yrs, ok.
"..lots of stuff going on, academic drawing, painting, sculpture, graphic design, basics of animation, sometimes it's creamics, sometimes you learn how to make stained glass, we had jewelery, wood and metal works and graphics and now they added photography." WOW man that really is hell of a lot. interesting as it is, do they really make you do even half of these?
"We have like everything..." DAMN that really is like everything!!! it's so developed. here you won't find much about that stuff.

so licentiate is 3yrs and masters is 2. and if you do both that's 5yrs. ok.
'and only in masters courses and without licenciate you can't go straight to master so xD"' oh, i see!
So if I go to game design after that I will have 3 masters xD" wait, why 3 masters? 
Also it goes like licenciate>masters>doctor>habilitation>(full) professor" ah, is that so. (those are meant to be arrows, and not 'greater than' signs, right? XP )
You usually can't be professor before 50 and it's super young to be prof at this age anyway." but they still teach you how to teach anyway?
Liceniate is probably like Bachelor in english" oh thank you! makes a lot more sense haha!
ya, some things just don't translate well into english XD
wait, why 'xvx'? (i looked it up and it said 'vegan straidght edge' but i don't get it)

wow it really is very different depending on where you are. i had no idea you guys have all that stuff XP and here animation's not even a thing. (altho i think it's starting to spread)
