It's a tricky one but...
At the end of the day design isn't rocket science is it?
It just about shapes, colours, type and throwing them together in an unoffencive way so you can get paid.
Computers do most of the work anyway and you can easily learn what you need from Youtube.
Save your time and money for partying, getting high and having fun.
At least that's what I tell my kids. ;)

Without knowing you and what's been done and the quality of your work it's hard to say but if you're a competent designer and you've done what was asked then I'd say you are within your rights to drop them and keep your deposit.
I've had plenty of clients that have been the "I don't know what I want but I'll know when I see it" type.
These are nightmare clients and the only thing you can do is try to explain to them how things work from the outset to make things work.
If I were you I'd try to resolve it first and explain that you've fulfilled your side (plus 2) and further work will incur an extra fee.
It's not easy to walk away from a client/job as you feel you've failed them but it sometimes has to be done.
I've only had to do it the once.
If you do a search on Google for "how to fire a client"or "when to walk away from a client" there are a lot of articles about how and when you should do so.

LOL! I should have re-read the title. O_o
It looks great.
Ours went pretty well apart from my colleague forgetting the rule of adding a few drops of washing up liquid to the water you spray of the window to lubricate it on the first panel.
It gives a little time to move it around and stops it grabbing the glass.
You live and learn.

@scotty - haha that's awesome, I used to love TDR. Umm not as long as I thought but thats probably because its modular and probably from start to finish on the typeface was probably like 10 hours work?
@theunderdog - good on you for doing pro-bono work for NFP's, I try to do a few a year, I think it's a good way I can donate to causes and groups I support too. I did the survey :)

@Scotty - I'm late to the party, but there's nothing worse than a screen poker. Particularly when you're on an older LCD monitor and you get that psychedelic explosion from where they thought it necessary to dig in their finger.
@Adamdesigns - I've had more than one art director lean on my shoulder while I was doing something. I'm 6'3", so I think they often do it as a bit of a power play.
@Jamesb - Nice work man!

Thanks @scotty and solid work with the wall piece, looks fun to do?
In the meantime:
Work in progress. Once again experimenting with photoshop brushes and photo montage. Got a bit to go with this one though the foundations are in.

@pongo81 - sounds like a great gift and as @scotty was saying, even the new bamboo's are great value, the one I have at work, although I don't use it, is pretty good!
I just ordered a 13inch cintiq hd, should arrive in the next couple of days, I'm pretty excited as I never really got used to the idea of drawing whilst not being able to see directly where the pen is.
