when someone tells you to stop?
I said "when the piece says it's done" only because there wasn't an option for "When my live-in partner says 'Don't do anything else on it, you'll ruin it!'"

chooses the 3rd option because it really means when i say its done, it means its done. and i'll always work to my best, I'm no slacker XD. yeah... i know, but really, am pushing myself

very interesting poll, Dustin. I'm of the opinion that a page is done when you feel it's done... but since the scripts are always significantly different, sometimes "done" would be after four days of rendering in a single page. which is pointless in terms of story-telling, tiring and not great money wise.
I try to think that the page is done when the storytelling works and the level of rendering is cool enough, but more importantly coherent with the rest of the pages.

creo que es un rollo instintivo, pero relacionado con fechas de entregas... delicado, en fin.
muchas gracias, Matias, me alegro de que te guste el Spidey
