My favourite music to draw to is
|296 votes
METAL!!! I like my art to rock as hard as my life does! YEAH!!!
Classical. I can get lost in it for hours, plus it means I'm smart and classy. So there.
Pop! I like my entertainment in easy to digest chunks!
Prog rock. It's like fantasy or sci-fi art - but with words and sound! Plus I like amazing musicianship. Those dudes can play!
RnB. You dig? I'm down with the kids.
Rap. Biatch.
Classic rock. I'm an old dude who liked it when bands could actually play their instruments.
Jazz. I got jazzy hands baby.
Oi! Mr Sharp! What about funk? And soul too. Gotta have soul. And where's the country? And blues baby? You can't narrow this shizzle down bro!
Reggae. I and I say art is green like the soul...

Both kinds, heavy AND metal...(yeah it's an old joke, I know). But actually, that's a complete lie, when I'm working I listen to BBC Radio 5Live (24 hour news & sport), or the directors commentary on some DVD or other.

I think being a musician makes me unable to listen to music when I work, I usually end up getting way too distracted by it. For me it's talk radio, usually Coast to Coast AM, Opie and Anthony, or Howard Stern depending on what I'm feeling.

and the stuff between that's hard to categorize...
gypsy folk metal, prog pagan funk rock, sexy egyptian metal rock, obscure rock operas, sea shanties, Epic polka metal, stuff from the 20s, etc.
And then I put it all on random.

There should be an Ambient/Chill option- That's ALL I can listen to while drawing, else I get very distracted.

Whatever captures the mood of the drawing. I can't listen to rock without drawing someone with influences of punk

I see not many people use Rap, it's my music of choice to relax and get my creative juices flowing. The beats and thought out lyrical verses help me with inspiration.

Def soul. Then some Foo Fighters style rock, rap then classical. It always has that order
