How much ink would a rasterbated image take?  I reallllly want an Audrey Hepburn image for my door, but I'd rather find out how much ink it'll take first.  Does anyone who's done Rasterbation before know how much ink it takes?

It entirely depends on how much of the image is dark, and how large you're going with it.  I did one that was 5' high by 4' wide (to line the back of a display case).  It had a fair amount of white space, so it really didn't take much ink.

I'm worried about this, myself. The beginning page will be slightly darker than the next and so on and so on.

Darker images = more usaga because duh, more ink so that's definately a good guide. Color pictures are hogs, unless you have a refill kit of your own and refill every other page or so.
