    Music for Drawing

    I have some songs I love to play when I need to get started drawing omn my own.

    I'm looking for super motivational, get off your ass (and back on) and draw music. So far, I've got:

    Curtain Call - Eminem
    Eye of the Tiger - Soul Survivor
    Remember the Name -Fort Minor
    We Are the Champions - Queen
    What's Stopping You? - Semisonic
    Sixteen Tons - Tennessee Ford ('Cuz no one wants to work in a coal mine)

    Got anything to add?
    Do you Mentler?

    Booting up a new sketchbook.

    It depends a lot on the tone of what I'm drawing

    mellow- something like Massive Attack
    nihilistic/dark-Ministry, Severed Head of State or World Burns To Death
    funn/funny-Blanks 77, the Vandals
    etc.
    Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die

    Sometimes when sketching I like to have music, but other times I can't get into my art as much as I'd like to when music is playing, I like to find my own rythm when painting or drawing, Unless there are couple really good songs that I'd like to make art to, I prefer to keep the music off.

    Usually I start up my drawing playlist consisting of Ghost in the Shell OST and other songs by Origa.

    The typical music that makes my soul fly. :]

    I found that music data from a RPG game Witcher goes with pretty much everything, really neat, but right now I'm stuck on Jimi Hendrix and John Frusciante. Depends on the mood really.

    big fan of einsturzende Neubauten,
    lyrics in German so it doesn't distract you lots of percussion

    Just found a cd by a band called hybrid thats pretty awesome. It's a compilation, remixes of orchestration and ambient music, and the second cd is mostly straight trance remixes. Its pretty chill, if thats what your looking for.

    Their regular albums are pretty awesome too.

    My music varies based on what I'm drawing, so if I'm drawing these:

    Fighter aircraft - Techno, Ace Combat soundtracks

    Celtic-based art - Celtic (Anuna, KiRite and Tsugunai: A Cinnuinuit by Yasunori Mitsuda)

    Contemplative art - Piano pieces (Final Fantasy IV Piano Collections)

    General/Whatever Goes - Either Devil May Cry soundtrack, SHMUP soundtracks (Thunder Force V, Ikaruga, Cave), Power metal

    Heh, that's only if you're talking about the emo lyrics of DMC 3 and 4. Me? I stick to the first one - the original. No emo/dark singing for me, please. Give me the music like the Nero Angelo battle track or Griffon fight theme.

    Yeah the original soundtrack was great. I guess the soundtracks follow the games.. save DMC2

    Anyway.
    Life Drawing - trip-hop - Massive Attack, DJ Shadow, DJ Krush, etc.
    or, Ambient - Art by Snipers, Autechre, Telefon Tel Aviv, Sasha
    Expressive painting - House - Daft Punk, St. Germain

    Since my own creative designs are usually sci-fi craziness with mecha and future soldiers wielding weapons firing glowing blue stuff:
    Winter War by Black Sun Empire & Noisia. It really makes me think of future soldiers battling with energy weapons in a Siberian snowstorm. I guess it also helps that I listened to it a lot while playing Timesplitters, but I thought of it quite a bit beforehand.

    Although, I do love Sinthetix!
