I don't know if anything like this has been suggested before, but here is the idea. I'm sure there are other people out there aspiring to complete an individual project, be it a manga, design portfolio, illustrations, etc. (I personally am trying to build a better art portfolio.) But 9 out of 10 times we fail, getting bogged down by work and daily chores, or simply lose momentum ...especially those of us without a teacher, art director or publisher breathing down our neck to finish.
I'm looking for one or maybe two other people who have this same motivational problem and an individual project they want to complete. I propose we comunicate via PMs once a week with progress updates. We can help each other set realistic goals for our projects, give each other feedback on work, encouragement, and most importantly, a little bit of friendly pestering and nudging if we start slacking off.
I don't foresee this working for a huge group, although if more than two other people are interested, they could form their own acountablilty partnerships. And these partnerships certainly aren't intended to be permanent, but for a limited time...however long a project is expected to last. So, how about it...is anyone interested?
