Just curious, to all polycounters already working in the games industry, how's your motivation to work/practice when you get home after a day of work? Can you do it?
Fortunately or unfortunately in our line of work you should never stop learning and you need to keep practicing, otherwise you will stay behind. Working in the industry makes it easy(er) to keep track of shit, you talk with fellow artists about techniques, new app releases, you show your work, get feedback and give feedback, etc. But do you still find time / motivation to get home and practice?
Now, I think it's safe to say everyone here got his own side projects, some personal project we have laying around to practice and improve our workflow, tests, what have you, but how often do you have the willing to open it and carry on with the work.
Just bringing this up cos I'm curious to know how others bear with this problem in this industry where things such as crunch-time and girlfriends do not help! :poly121:
