    Things you do instead of drawing what you meant to / wanted to draw.

    I don't know about you, but I have adhd, and find myself distracted easily. Then at the end of the day I'm like fuck what happened I really wanted to work on ____.

    Instead I'm playing minecraft, drawing other pointless doodles, painting textures just for the sake of practice, working on my website, finding gazillions of pictures that I think maybe I can use as reference material for a later picture (sometimes this is intended on being used for what I really want to be drawing, but ends up being me finding a bunch of other shit I want to use to draw from for other pictures).

    Not saying that any of those activities are really bad or anything, just saying I sometimes let the day get away from me and I'm left being annoyed because I wanted to draw all day and get something accomplished and it just didn't happen.

    What about you guys, what do you get distracted from your art / projects with?

    I procrasturbate on forums, watch YouTube videos and make/drink absolutely massive quantities of coffee! Can't be doing myself any favours but it just kinda happens.

    When I play some random online games, they always end up taking at least 6 hours of my life per day for the next 2 months.

    Good thing I Hearthstone isn't that addictive.

    And ever since I began drafting and planning for fiction again, I've been keeping myself busy writing. These really prevent me from finishing my stuffs.

    Don't really do this often. I like to stay disciplined.
    Although I guess when it happens, I'll just end up drawing something I wasn't intending to, which ends up being a good thing a lot of the time.

    Sometimes I will just end up watching Twitch.tv or Youtube, but that's normally on days when I should be taking a rest from the draws anyway.

    Sleep. I will sleep forever and get nothing done. It's currently my biggest problem. My bed is just too comfortable and I don't want to leave it.

    I get distracted from drawing pictures by drawing other pictures.

    So I have a shit ton of unfinished pieces that I will probably never completely finish, or put a fraction of my full potential into, because the workload becomes overwhelming.
    Which leads to a lot of "Okay, I'm just going to flat color everything and randomly slap some shines on and maybe color the lineart just a little bit. Okay, done."
