Nik Ainley’s tutorial will probably take you a shorter time than I did, considering that I kept stopping and starting to do other things. I estimate about 1-2 hours. Warning: this tutorial isn’t as detailed as most. I think it is written, with a user who is more experienced with Photoshop in mind. There are also steps where you are allowed a lot of creative freedom, which is fine with me since I tend to take liberties with tutorials anyway. One thing notably different that I did was instead of using a 3d program like 3d Studio Max to create the text, I used the 3D Effect in Illustrator. Below is my result.
