i am exactly like Amerk or Jonnie too... i can't stand placeholders.
i will work on something until it is done. : )
The only placeholders i use r for character art/ illustrations... i like having them be as recent/ "fresh" when the game is done i guess, lol.
i mean, if it takes me too long to finish a project, i will mostly end up redrawing everything if i do the art too early.
Don't be alarmed, i name all my characters interesting names lol
