    I never believed in new years resolutions, but there are things I don't overcome easy. I have a few:

    1# Staying off the internet when it's not needed. I waste too much of my free time on the internet and it makes me feel empty, uncreative and sad.

    2# Learn to love my art. The perfectionist in me and what others think can ruin my fun and future career for art and comics. In the end; it could ruin my life.

    Haha, Im looking forward to next year, hopefully I can start making decent work.
    1) Wake up erly, for more time to draw.
    2) Focus more in 3Ds Max
    3) Present my work in a profesional way.
    4) Complete every task of my Game Art cours and hit deadlines with no exceptions.
    5) Spend more money on artbooks than alcohol. (That'd be nice)
    6) Submit work to the Crit section, maybe make a personal thread?

    Or maybe I should sum it up to having greater dicipline... Or spelling. These dont seem too hard to do though.

    Things I already started:
    -Learn Anatomy. And learn it right!
    -Stop messing around and learn how to make my stuff look pretty.
    -Concentrate on what I'm doing.
    -Be more patient.
    And finally: Learn to enjoy my life.
    That's it basically.

    Everyone's here are very vague and not measurable. Of course with my concrete ones every year I get to see how much I fail at keeping resolutions. My guess is I'll last less than a month, but I hope to prove myself wrong. I want to do a minimum of:
    -25 sketchbook pages/week
    -1 traditional painting/week
    -1 weekly activity/month

    I`ve been off with drawing for a while. My resolution would be to retake it besides my graphic design classes. I`m in the need to make schedules and be organized, else i`m getting nowhere. Scraps here, some doodles there, some unfinished stuff in the drawer, Bleh, thats not how i should be making things.

    Besides more organized studies i need to start making things to show for myself. Turn some ideas on tough out images that i can actually show.

    I`m looking into chow and cow, joining seems like it would be fun.

    Well it may have been a bit of an exaggeration, but seriously, compare the number of concrete ones versus "I wanna do more art" or "learn anatomy".

    My art-related ones are:
    *Start doing daily Loomis studies - I've allowed myself to slack off for far too long
    *Try and get some life drawing in to help with my anatomy. Can't afford classes but there's nothing stopping me from going down to the park for an hour or so and knocking a few studies out
    *Get over my fear of creating something rubbish. Mistakes are there to learn from after all

    General life-type resolutions:
    *Get healthy and stress-free (as much as humanly possible any way)
    *Learn to skate
    *Waste less time

    2048 by 115--Oh, wait - THAT New Year's Resolution

    1) Succeed in getting accepted into FZDSchool.
    2) Get laid (Preferably with either a hot Singaporean Beauty, or a fine Nordic Specimen. Both which are extremely unlikely... )

    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    Well lately, I've been making a drawing per day. Nothing specific, whatever comes to mind, it can range from a full scale drawing to a 2in. tattoo design. It definitely helps to keep me feeling accomplished and I have definitely seen growth from the daily routine in 2010, figure I'll keep it up through 2011!

    Life is more than what meets the I and I.

    Hm... Stop giving into procrastination, get my web comic finally going now that my painting seems to be done, lose weight (again), gets a job, get a driver's license, and finish making crap for the anime con I'm selling at, I guess.

    This. Resolutions are probably cheap to other people, but at the very least the person giving themselves the resolution knows 'roughly' the kind of 'measurement' to use, if not right away.

    In other words, they know not to cheat themselves by setting a mediocre goal, even if they're not sure how to measure it. That's all that really matters.

    Also mine:

    # do at least 3 Bridgeman/other intense anatomy studies daily, along with gesture/forms.
    # Learn the staples of animation and have practiced it thoroughly by this summer.
    # Keep working consistently on other observational and construction drawings, until it becomes second-nature.
    # work on side-projects consistently. The cut-off point for 'laxing' on ANY one of these projects is a week, and any session must be at least an hour. Ideally, if I'm juggling projects, I should spend an hour each on them within the day.

    Sorted. Now to copypasta into Blumind so I never forget...

    to expand my identity like crazy, become much warmer, more social and self-confident, raise my standards, master my mind, thoughts and emotions, change the way I see the world and learn to appreciate the varieties and subtleties of life, change my beliefs about myself and what I'm capable of, learn to see and interpret the events in my life in an empowering way so that culture, events, other people and the environment will have little or nothing to do with how I think or feel, learn what my life really is about, find out what things turn me on about different things including drawing and to be able to trigger that sensation any time I want, link absolute pleasure to learning things, including drawing, and be willing to do those things consistently and constantly simply out of sheer pleasure instead of obligation, and not settle for less than I can be.
    I think 2011 is going to be the best year of Ruuhkis so far.

    I think I did a really good job last year of establishing a better work ethic and my portfolio is much better than I anticipated it would be.

    So now my goal is to make a steady income with my art. By steady, I mean something a bit on the small side...enough to build on.

    And I would like to make more time for my hobby...making crafts to sell on etsy.

    Why would you even come on here and post something like this? This thread should have absolutely NO counter arguments. Everybody has something different that they want to do.
