Since I have joined BYOND I have wanted to make an original game of some-sort. I have made many many projects but never feel like I should release them seeing as I have a negative view upon myself in anything I do. I make mostly everything I've released browser based because I couldn't icon for the life of me, I don't know where to start and if I'll ever get anywhere with it. I wish I had the drive to learn to icon/sprite/draw as much as I did to learn DM. I don't know what my lack of motivation is , I just can't ever seem to finish a project because of the drawing/icon aspect of it. I know if I learned I would get farther but then motivation comes into play and I don't know how to get myself motivated to learn to "icon", I've tried everything and every time I think negatively about my work. I have things in my life to thank for that.
Does anyone have any "secret" they could share to help staying motivated to learn something? That definitely would help me at what I'm trying to achieve.
