It vary a lot with the details of the technique you use. High realism images ( most creative artist do not like the term photorealism since they consider photographies to be less than a high quality painting) can vary a lot in detail level as well.
I have seen people do very good and realistic works in an afternoon, using airbrush for an early cover (speeds up the process a LOT).. and seen people take hundred of hours in other works.
The more purist and super detailed you are the longer you shall take. The more open to different techniques and more focused in the core than in the details , the less time you take.
"no no! You are doing it all wrong, in the internet we are supposed to be stubborn, inflexible and arrogant. One cannot simply be suddenly reasonable and reflexive in the internet, that breaks years of internet tradition as a medium of anger, arrogance, bigotry and self entitlement. Damm these internet newcomers being nice to to others!!!"
