May I know how long it took you to do a piece like this?

May I know which program you used to create this wonderful piece?

Hello Chuang, no problem!

I did these 3 images in the same way(maybe one day will finish all the horoscope). First of all sketch the faces with pencil from a newspaper photograph, try to exagerate it (in a hirshfeld way, look the post about him)render a good line.
Then scan the drawing and import it into flash (or other vector based program) to ink it.
To colour it, I've also used this time flash. Try to use a warm palette and only flat colors (no gradients).
Once render the pic, go with it to photoshop and add a light or filter in yellow-orange to get some warm mood.
And that's it!
Time to render.. about 3 hours (maybe the most difficult part is to get the sketch)
I hope it helps you.
