How long does it usually take you to design a new skin?

Hello everyone! I’ve been designing skins for quite a while now, and was just wondering how long you normally take to finish a skin. I typically take about 4 days to complete a skin and wonder if that’s too long, so why not ask the rest.

I spend a full day on design and a full second day on finishing the design (this includes buttons, some blocks, etc.,); i also prepare the design for xhtml with sprites or whatever. The third and fourth day is designated to coding, adjusting custom layouts, blocks, and debugging for all browsers. My designs are very heavy with graphics, so maybe simple css-stripping may take about 2 days.

It depends on the skin.  I have never spent more than 32 hours(4 days) on one.

About 25-30 hours. If you would like to have a new skin, then let me know, I can get you a good price.
