Art forum, what's the best way to fight procrastination?

I just can't get anything done. I tell myself "Today I'm working on this". But I never do. I get to my tablet, and don't do anything. I know this will have an obvious answer, but whatever.

When I do get past the procrastination, it's usually because I'm genuinely excited for what I'm doing.

So... get enthusiastic about what you're doing?

Depends on how clever the sprite artist is. Some stuff out there is amazing. Really pushing the boundries of the sprites. Others ... Not so much.

Get started. Don't start later, don't start after you have read that article. Once you realize you should be doing something, start it IMMEDIATELY. Smack yourself in the face if you have to and get to it! Starting something is harder than keeping going.

Timers can be your friends. Partition your time as drawing and entertainment. Stick to it. When the timer says it's drawing time, you OBEY. You start drawing. It's not even so bad when you don't finish drawing, as long as you have started.

Except for, you know, people who customize sprites and create their own custom sprites to add new perspectives to the piece.
And maybe they use sprites because they can't draw?
But if the community is in such an uproar about sprites...... maybe I'll just take my sprite work and leave......

I'm with Jonny here and in addition to what he said, decent or original art is not the most important part in a good flash. Shocking news, huh? Just think about the many funny sprite movies here on NG and the impact they had. This is NG not AMPAS.

Yeah, I gotta say, some of my favourite flashes on this site are those MK Fatalities flashes, just hilarious.
Also, one of my buddies on NG does only sprite work, and I'd say his stuff is pretty good (also helps that he's been one of few people to get me some VA work).

So update it multiple times. Then post on other people's art threads to give them more of an incentive to check otu your own work. Then update a bit more.

If all else fails, punch them in the face and drag them there by the ear. It's all about tenacity.

I stopped by a local art gallery today and started talking to the owner. She mentioned that she wanted something different for her future shows, and I asked if she was open for ideas. She told me if I get enough material together that she would love to present it. The first place I thought of was here, and I thought some of you would like to get some exposure. I thought it would be awesome to present pixel art in a gallery. I wanted to know how many of you would be willing to contribute.

Wait, a gallery is willing to accept work from artists who they will never meet, and these pieces will be print outs of digital art printed by someone other than the artist themselves? That's a new one to me.
