3-4 days for PSD . 2-3 days for HTML . Around 1 week for WordPress. So it’s roughly about 2 weeks at my side.

It all depends. For a customer 1 week, for the marketplaces, 1 month. If you want a quality product that is! :) It all depends on how you want to build it, the features, the shortcodes, etc. There is now fast way of knowing :)

If you have a framework already, that is. Mine took a year of planning and a month of coding.

It really only takes 2 weeks to design, code, and get accepted. Just ask Landon.

If I knew you well I’d send you proof, but I don’t so I won’t. It’s a shame people always shoot people down who actually work hard to achieve their goals.

So, when will you release your first theme? are you back to your first plan in January 2012? Can’t wait to see it… ;)

yeah, poor you. Maybe you should take your own advice, based on the way you treat some of the other authors and aspiring authors around here. You know, the ones that have some work to show.

Anyway, this will be the end of it, so the fun police need not bother coming in here and telling me to stay on topic.

My workflow is a bit different, but I have to agree that planning is the part on which we should spend a lot of time. I have found that taking the time to actually plan things out thoroughly, cuts back on the time needed to design and code the whole theme, by keeping you focused on the task, instead of being lost and having to constantly change the design, until it turns into something that you find esthetic and functional. Unfortunately, I had to learn this the hard way, but I’m glad I finally did.

Conclusion: never, ever start designing and coding until you plan things out. I know it’s tempting, but you won’t save yourself any time, if you skip the planning phase. It will actually prolong the time needed for you to make a good WordPress theme. So hold your horses cowboys, and plan before you jump into anything else. :)
