I work consistently 50-70 hour weeks. I find creativity to happen between 3pm and 10pm. Mornings seem to be lost waking up and better for menial tasks.
It's been a steady 40-50 for a few months, was up in the 80's for about a month before the calm. The time between lunch and dinner seems the most creative, once i eat dinner I slow down. Second wind of creativity comes around 11pm and i can pull an extra speed crazed 2 hours.
Hurray for the game industry and all it's glamour. lsen_gas
Hehe, I hear that.
Funny how food seems to slow the process.. God forbid I have one beer or I am done for.
I hear you guys loud and clear. I've been working crunch since Jan about 50-60 hours a week (somtimes 6 days a week). I usually am at my best around 3pm. But then I get a second wind around 8 or so.
Mostly it depends on what I'm doing. If I'm working on tedious bug fixes, well then I'm slow going.
But if it's a level I'm modeling out. Like the one I just finished then I can't be stopped for nothing. :evilmusta
..crunch makes me angry..
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy....
or my fav parody...
Homer: No beer, no tv make Homer go somthing somthing...
Marge: Go crazy?
Homer: Don't mind if I do!
one beer and you're done... hahah I've been there so many times i thought i was the only one.
I take it everyone here is working late tonight i know i am.
well right now i dont work (got 2 weeks off)
but i ussually work from about 8am to about 5/6pm most days
i definatley find my most creaive time in the night. around 10pm to about 5/6am, depending on how i feel (and if i have work the next day ^-^)
Well I'm on EastCoast time, and I just took off (at 10pm) but then again the game I'm working on goes Beta on Monday.
I'm anticipating many more fun nights! YAY! but the end is in sight...at least for a while.
at least you guys are working
I don't have a job at the moment (until university), so I try to draw 12 hours a day
I work 40-50 hours during the year, but in the summer it's down to about 20. Even so, my most creative times are in the very early morning, between 1:00 and 4:00 AM.
"Es nat far meh, es far me maaah."
wierd that nobody is creative in the early work day. Artists are not morning people I take it.
Well in College I would do my best work from like 10pm- 5am or so.
Since working in the game industry for a year now, I find myself really fizzing out by the time 10pm rolls around. HAHA my second wind only lasts about 2 hours.
Acctually I think Dan Milligan is the only early riser on the forum. When he said that in Austin, everything went quite for like 5 min and they all stared.Originally Posted by R Brownwierd that nobody is creative in the early work day. Artists are not morning people I take it.
I usually work about 6 hours a day 6 or 7 days a week, by work i mean i paint things that will hopefully land me some cash. I don´t really consider it work though, since i´m enjoying it so much, and that it doesn´t always land me some cash. All in all i paint 10 or more hours a day (sometimes 20 or more hours if i´m working on something that has really sucked me in, and i have a large supply of Red Bull in the fridge..). The rest of the time i´m either sleeping, coocking, eating or chatting with people online. From time to time i actually spend some time with my girlfriend too..
I think the only time i´m not creative at all is the first two hours after waking up, and directly after food. Luckily i dont get that tired after a beer, i think it actually helps me to have one (1) sometimes when the workload gets too heavy and i just need to chill and focus.
I usually work between 40 to 50 hours like most of you. My best creative time is in the early evenings, after 8pm, unfortunately, quite often I've got networking meetings which I have to attend at that time - this results in great breaks in creativity which are bad.
