Well, usually I watch the episode in a livestream the instant it airs. Then, I take a request from the My Little Pony General thread on 4chan (which I consider my fandom home). I can usually finish a sketch in 1-2 hours, 1 hour for inks, and 30 minutes for colors since I just do flats and no shading. Intersperse breaks throughout and it's easy to make something in a few hours. Notice how my pics I do on episode day are of lower quality than the ones I take a while on.
