If it's a difficult/large project: starting
A tedious/don't wanna do it anymore: finishing

For me getting the will to start something is the hardest part. After I start though, I just have this desire to finish so I can 1) get it off of my mind and 2) see the finished result.

Starting something is the hardest. I always put things off for... work... food... video games.... then never get around to it.

Starting means inking. Inking means tedium.

Once I get colouring I enjoy myself.

Both are hard, but it kind of depends on each individual case which is harder. Most of the time with art or writing, I find finishing harder. I think most of the reason is that I'm never sure when to finish, it's hard for me to find that line between not quite done, and over done.

Both...

On starting: Starting anything at this point would be nice. (I've had block for years now)

On finishing: Art is never finished (...as the saying goes -Its true!). Though I do believe there is a point at which one should "stick a fork in it." :)

On starting: Srsly? Want ideas? Like....... Asteroids :D Or..... Phobos & Deimos :D

And then... hmmm... Is there an object with very low gravity, not too far away from earth but also not too near, where large spaceships could be built...

Right now starting but I chose finishing 'cause even if I did start something, I wouldn't get halfway through. :slow:

It depends for me. While finishing is always hard, I find it much harder to start something if I don't enjoy it. With my writing the beginning portion is always the easiest - I plan things, I think things and I start writing prologues and what have you that I think at the time are good. Only later I start to question my work and go back - and rarely ever finish. When it comes to writing school papers however... getting that first paragraph is always the hardest thing to do, and finishing can't come any sooner.

For me it's finish. I have probably a dozen or so little stories sitting on my computer that I just can't seem finish up.

It's amazing how "balanced" this is :O_o: I chose start - if it's something that I'm especially not used to drawing, that first bit seems tedious and feels like the work is going nowhere. But rarely do I leave something I started unfinished...seems like a waste of all that previous time I spent on it :(

Let's put it this way.
It's hard to start a relationship but easy to end it.
It's hard to end a project but easy to start it.
Though opinions might differ.

Anything school-related: to start.
Anything art-related: to finish.

Open main Photoshop folder> see tons folders containing projects>open just about any given folder, see started stuff. If you're lucky, you'll have found a folder that's completed.

ie:I start lots of stuff, I finish probably <35% of things.

Technically both. At first I can't be bothered to start anything and later on, it turns out to be so shitty that I don't feel like improving anything. Picked "finishing", though, as it's slightly harder for me.

To start, I always sits for hours before I know what do I want to do, and when I start already it all goes with it's own speed :)

When i'm at home i never really have the motivation to make paintings, but when i'm at mine work (internship, idk how to say :P) i do.

But usually i get bored on a piece and start doing something else.. So i choose both ;P

Finish. Its easy to start anything but it takes a lot of time and effort to finish what you've started.

Start or finish what? When it comes to art then it's the same basically, but all the other projects are really hard to finish, I lose motivation rather quickly :(
