    I'm going to collapse if I work on this model any longer.... must... work... *chains self to desk*


    How do you guys keep going on a long project? I always end up starting a model, and quitting when its near done. :hmm: Currently I can't get the hands right on this model, and Its driving me nuts. :(

    When I get like that, I usually stop and work on something else for a while. Then, I go back to the problem with a fresh mind, which keeps me going.

    usually I tend to have a few moddeling projects running at the same time, like this you just can work on lets say 3 projects....if you get bored of the first one, just continue on the second one....and so on and so on :)

    be very organized from the start.
    Make a plan of what different steps you'll have to complete in order to achieve the project.
    Oh and yes...That implies you must have a clear idea of your final goal :)

    To avoid being bored give yourself a motivation by deciding what you'll do with the model once it's finished (import it in a TC,upload it to the net,etc..)and ask for other people advice.

    Definately agree with Tao. Organisation and a final deadline and objective to reach helps a lot.

    Aside from that, keep going. I think once you get into the habit of finishing stuff off without taking time out to work on other things you find it easier. Instead fo eventually getting to the point where your working on 9 or 10 projects and will never get roudn to finishing any.

    However, like Corran said, if its inspiration your short of, then working on another model can help.

    map while you build when possible.

    Pull your phone line out of the modem, I eventually build up the attention. If I'm online, my concentration is ****ed over by IRC and a few browser windows.
