Rant.
I wish I came here five years earlier. I have these two really big ideas that I absolutely want to bring out before I die. One I've been sitting on for almost a year and the other for more than two. And I just know they will turn out great. Almost every day I have an idea for a practice or a combo or scene or whatever. I have all these people here on the dojo whose work I'm a fan of and who I also want to impress. But as it is I don't have the time to do any of that. I put a lot of hope into this winter because I thought that I'm gonna have more free time. But it turns out I'm blocked until after summer and I have no reason to believe it will get better then. I haven't animated in more than half a year and I still wont anytime soon. I keep telling myself not to give up and that I have to 'hang in there' and push myself more because that's what got me to where I am today. But all that does is make me waste time lurking the dojo and use up a lot of my daily mental capacity. Most of all it's just so frustrating

@LaTrancheDePain too soon <3

@IAmTheOcelot that's really sad to hear...but don't worry, everyone i know who went there said it was the best time of their life, and you'll probably forget about us for that time :P

@HintHunter what you say works for small things like practices or simple collabs, but not on meaningfull projects. It's not as easy as scribbling something on 15 frames, and you'll be distracted for a long time before and after that for very little process.

Interestingly enough a youtuber I've been following made a video yesterday saying something along the lines of 'when you have a lot of income and time, then making content as expression part of you will fail. Because if you're not breaking a sweat then you're not creating something new'. Think of it what you want

Hey to the new peeps, for some advice on workflow and just remain focus all together I borrowed a concept from @Bepler . Whether it be practice or not try setting a goal and work on 5 seconds of an animation, just 5 whole seconds. I know it's not a lot but if I can just complete 5 seconds worth of animation then I'm perfectly fine with that and that itself is pretty fulfilling. Keep doing that everyday and boom you got a fully finished animation. Start off small when it comes to that an not overwhelm yourself with it.

@Crylex has a solid point as well and is summarized nicely what future people might say, "don't work to impress anyone but yourself man".

Best of luck!!

sometimes I keep going just off 1 second even. Bite sized chunks are the only way anyone can do anything.
