Musical Creation: Day 61

Plaid 2

I’m hesitating on calling this image complete. I still think it need something special. Not sure what yet though, but I have a few ideas that I might try tomorrow. Or I’ll leave it how it is and move on to something else. It’s past due time I start on some creepy Halloween themed drawings.

It’s going to be a brief update today. However, I do have an interesting thing to discuss, for anyone interested in replying in the comments. When I do my daily drawing, I’m always listening to some form of music. Audio stimulation seems to really drive what I end up creating. It’s been like that for a few years or so now. When I was a kid I would do most of my drawing in school. During class, of course. I’d often get in trouble because I would draw while the teachers talked. There was no music. I would drown everything out and just doodle. Music (usually without vocals as I sometimes find them distracting) is what helps me to create. So, what kind of music helps you to focus? Or do whatever it is you do best?

    It’s coming along nicely Robert 🙂 I’ve never been much of a drawer as if late, more when I was a kid. Of course I’ve always liked your monster/alien drawings growing up 🙂 anyways I do write from time to time, I’ve never done it with music but I should try it with music. The music i would listen to, would probably be some classic music or something a bit darker but with an epic melody mixed in lol

      Yeah, music is very important for me when I want to create something.

      Like, classic music? So Pink Floyd? Or classical music? Like Chopin? 😀

  • Brad Thornhill

    Sorry I meant classic music like orchestra or just instrumental classical rock sounding stuff which iguess pink Floyd would fall into that 🙂

      I love me some instrumental. Just about any kind really. I do searches for playlists with “Ambient” and “Instrumental” all the time 🙂 Good stuff.

      lol in these comments your edits look odd and out of place. I have no problem editing my comments. Maybe it’s OCD, but can you try to do that to keep the place clean and tidy? 😀
