In case anyone is curious. Before I started this piece I asked a bunch of friends if they thought I could get this done in the three days I had to work on it. They all really threw their support behind me and I managed to get it done in two. My friends are pretty damn cool.
Thanks I usually don't push that much work into 2 days, though the total time is actually pretty consistent for me. Lately I've been doing a lot of 9x12's and those usually take me about 35-40 hours depending on the level of detail. I just hope this does well.
Thanks I put a lot of work into it I used the Photoshop version of the template, with that you just have to plug the work into the right layer. I'm not sure how to do it easily without Photoshop. Maybe try GIMP? I've never used it but I hear it's comparable, and it's free.
