  1. I was listening to a podcast (I'm pretty sure it was "Still Buffering", episode "How to Procrastinate") when I heard an artist talk about setting up deadlines in order to be productive with their art. She talked about how if she didn't set a deadline that she would infinitely work on the art piece, and that that's the reason why setting a deadline was important for her. Otherwise, she'd never consider anything "finished". As an artist, I can immensely relate to that. I've been trying to work on a fan/webcomic for awhile now but I have problems with completing pages. I could go into a lot of details but the tldr version of it is that I am a fairly unskilled artist who needs a lot of time to work on pieces but am taking forever to make pages. So I've decided that I want to create a self-imposed deadline for myself. What's the best way to approach this? I've participated twice in Inktober (a drawing challenge that requires drawing 1 picture for each day of October) so I'm a bit familiar with community-inspired deadlines but doing something all on my own? How do I make myself accountable? Also, how do I figure out an appropriate deadline? I want to post weekly but I've got to do this enough to improve my skills first- as of right now the only weekly pages I can manage based on my schedule is if work gets cancelled for an additional 2 days and I know what I'm doing. But at the same time, by 2 weeks it both feels too long and at that point I get sick of the page and start putting it off because I start hating it. Any tips are appreciated For reference, I ideally go through 3 page drafts ("scrap"->"rough"->"final"), where the final always takes up at least 75% of the total completion time. The page shown below took a week to complete (based on a schedule miracle, small number of panels, and a rare instance of knowing what to do). These are what my "rough" and "final" layers tend to look like:

    Music for Creativity

    Alrighty -- so i'm trying to build up good music to write to, and also want to test the "Create a new topic" button. So let's roll both those into one thing! So i usually try to listen to lyric-less music such as anything by Cryo Chamber Label on youtube or video game sound tracks ( Usually Myst, Riven, Obduction, Uru, Halo, or Mass Effect). I am currently working on a playlist for my podcast (Which apparently i've included? Didn't know i could hot link spotify playlists directly into the forum. Cool) and it's coming along very nicely, but i have to be in a super specific writing place to be able to write and listen too it. So basically i'm wondering what everyone else listens to if anything... **now lets see if this posts**

    Whatcha Doin'? (Stuff you're working on)

    Here you can talk about what you're currently working on. You can be as vague or specific as you want- feel free to post bits, files, or screenshots if you so desire. Keep up the hard work, everyone! I'll start. I'm currently working on my 10th comic page. I've been stuck on shading for awhile (procrastinating, actually) because I'm scared that I've forgotten how to do a good coloring job like with my previous page, but I know I've just got to keep chipping away at it. ^^;
