Anti-procrastination wallpaper by LadyAway Anti-procrastination wallpaper by LadyAway
Today I did a serious, spring clean-up of my computer (even external disk!) and I thought a new wallpaper would be nice. I spent an hour looking for something minimalistic and motivational, and finally I created something on my own. It's supposed to keep me going whenever I feel like procrastinating again :P Procrastination is like suspension, like pointless stop on the way to your goal, so my wallpaper will now gently remind me what I should be doing.

Lol I am king of procrastination
lol, I open something and try to draw, then I flop at drawing a circle so I minimise it and check DA....then i end up engaged in a 3 hour conversation....and never get any art done :dummy:
//Like now lol, I should be working on my half of an art trade with Girl-In-A-Fez,which I have owed her for like nearly half a year it think lol, but i am on DA :dummy:

Actually, with every drawn picture you become better, so no matter what you draw, it will improve your skills :) Also, once you've learned the rules, you may easily break them to create your own style!

It works for me, because I actually want to work, and procrastination happens to me mostly when there's some obstacle, some harder part. And instead of trying to fight it, I prefer to go to a random site and spend an hour doing nothing. So this kind of impulse can be quite helpful :)

For me, it's more that I wanna start something, but then I decide... "Hmm. Let's check Facebook first. And then play a match of Magicka: Wizard Wars." And then the entire day goes by without anything getting done. And when I DO start something, I usually get interrupted, which is the worst, as when I try to return to it, I CAN'T. I can't manage to finish it. Not with my AD/HD. I was able to finish my walrus piece because there was no one home.

Have you tried Noisli? You put your headphones on, turn on the least distracting sounds (my favorite is loud bonfire + quiet summer night) and then nobody can disturb you :) I used it when writing my thesis (nobody understood I needed to focus!) and it helped a lot. But to actually start doing something you need motivation, and the best way for me is to visit my idols' profiles to see how bad I am (yet)

Ha ha, the other part is that I also live with my mom and my sister... meaning that sometimes my mom or my sister will bug me to do something (washing the dishes or whatever the hell they want). So, as a result, I have a ton of sketches rotting on my hard drive. :V

I know what you mean, I live with my parents too! For example, now I'm - theoretically - at work, and when I'm done, instead of having some free time, I'm helping my mom in the garden. At least I'll get 2 hours in the evening for myself :P
