January ProgBlog #1: mediocre starts

I was intending on trying to get back into the swing of things in the first week of January (including my blogging schedule) with the intention of seeing what in the work schedule that I'd done up (and been vaguely reworking on the fly) needed changing up.

I didn't end up doing the progblog and the work schedule really does need changing up. 

Though most of what I suffer from is the complete inability to keep to anything resembling time, and the fact that I have to be interruptable because JJ is the one with the full time job with defined hours.  So what I had was just stuff that needed to get done on what day, and just doing what I could when I could.

It's very messy and scattered because my brain occasionally likes to completely shut down on something so I tend to procrastinate by doing other things I need to do.  Then feel bad about not doing as much on the thing I set out to do originally even if something else that needed to get done got more done.

I don't know if it's not working out because it's not working out or if it's not working out because no matter how much I do, it always feels like it will never be enough.

It really doesn't help that I can't multitask a lot of things because they either require the same part of my brain or the same tools, so the best I can do is a lot of very clumsy not quite parallel processing.

Okay it's not parallel at all, I work a lot on things I can get into a zone for and kind of peck at things that either need to get done or I feel like I should probably be doing but work rate on those things is abysmal.

This stupid tattoo is a prime example.

I had a moment where I forgot that blue was meant to be three layers as well and had to start over (which was mildly triggering because I have developed a pathological hatred of redoing work) but it's moving again.

It also adores running me out of ram.  It may or may not have something to do with my image maps.

There was also a reminder to remember to zoom out for frequently than I have been as I accidentally made the captain have really stocky legs and had to pare down quite a bit.

There's still a number of things I need to fix with the overall shape and also have to do the fingers and toes.

Finally instead of doing the thing I was supposed to be working on today, I worked on the Redcap group pic.

Even years later, it still amuses me how much of a difference even a little bit of shading makes.

I need to rework my schedule x_x
