    The Motivation Thread: What are your goals today?

    TLDR: This is a thread for people to post their daily goal(s) so that they can have a support system/cheering section to help them accomplish those goals. THE LONG VERSION: Hey hey! So I have been struggling with depression for a long time, and I know that a lot of lovely people here also...

    Artists of Fur Affinity: what motivates you, specifically?

    Basically, my question can be divided down like this: - Out of all the aspects of feedback that one can receive on one's art (viewcounts, favourites, watches, positive/negative comments, retweets/reblogs/other forms of sharing, financial compensation like from Patreon or Kofi or other similar)...

    Ways to motivate yourself

    What are some ways you use to motivate yourself? For a example I have a rule that every time I complete something in my game (maps, fix major bug, enemy, etc) I can use one (or add another to save up) dollar that I can to do whatever I want with. (Not gaining money just allowing myself to use my...

    Staying Focused and Motivated

    Hey everyone! I was wondering, what are some ways you may stay focused and motivated when creating art? How does that change in certain situations? For example, let's say you have x amount of commissions to finish and your queue has gotten too large to handle? What about when you're working on...
