Or, it is sort of as hard as you thought, but you finish it up and start testing and it's all working really well. That happens occasionally and it's kind of nice.

The thing I find is that there's a sort of 'be both the forest and the trees, young padawan' type of thing that happens ideally. Where you are keeping both the big picture and details in correct perspective throughout the process. I remember when I was young and would try to draw, and I'd get totally lost in the details and end up with a person with huge frankenstein hands because I'd completely lost the big picture perspective.

The ones where I manage to really nail it or it flows much easier than expected are very often the ones where I am always able to keep the big picture perspective while moving around within the details.
