    Listening to podcast while drawing?

    Hello folks,

    I really enjoy podcasts with scientists like Neil deGrasse Tyson about nature, universe and space. I also draw increasingly more lately just to get better. Is ok or will it hinder my progress? And how about music?

    Cheers

    Hey, whatever helps you get inspired or allows you to focus on work, it's all good.
    Play music, movies, etc. I tend to stream shows, game playthroughs or subject-specific documentaries in the background while I work; also an easy way to keep track of hours.

    if you want to focus and learn something cut out all distractions and focus on the task at hand. Multitasking is for secretaries, good art requires sustained focus and concentration.

    There are two schools of thought: Some say focus all your attention on your artwork. Others would say music or podcasts allows your subconscious or even the unconscious to dictate your work, and that you may just learn something invaluable about yourself through this process.

    It depends on what you want. There is just no "ought" in relation to artistic practice.
