...Are you guys serious?
The longest I've ever worked on a tag was an hour, and this was only because I stopped in between because Photoshop fucked up....
My tags usually take less than 30 minutes, if not 20. That's like the max of my time working on it. I've never worked on a tag longer than an hour, and I honestly wouldn't have the patience for it...
To be honest, I can't really... understand how it can take that long...? Three hours on one tag? Really?
The main reason I, and along with everyone else, work on a tag for so long is because we want to make it no half-assed crap that are lower than what we are capable. And yes, I'm speaking for those of us who work on a single piece for more then an hour. It might be time well wasted, but it's also the feeling of achievement after finishing it.
.... Not sure if you're calling my work shit... I'd say it's at least decent, and I don't spend more than 45 minutes on it?
