    music fueling painting

    I had to get myself psyched to paint some medieval weapons and armor type stuff last night, so after cafeful consideration I put on some Manowar. Dude man, I listened to four hours of Manowar. It was amazing. I never knew how much I liked them until I'm singing along with "holy war" while painting a dead knight, I even had to borrow some from my brother because I ran out. I'm totally pumped for more. Anyone else lean towards specific music for certain jobs? I just got about 5 cds worth of Ennio Morricone today, just waiting to get assigned some western scenes...

    I have a big range of music... lots of videogame stuff. for darker, scarier themes, I listen to silent hill / 28 days later soundtracks.. I also of some legend of zelda OSTs, xenogears.. lots of imported tuned... relaxing stuff, like Emilianna Torrinni. Lots and lots of jazz.

    I usually listen to my Rush albums when I work, though they haven't inspired me or anything. Right now, their Counterparts album is constantly running in my CD player.

    yep,definately. everything works better with music (most of the time). therefore if i put on music which fits perfectly for a series of pics and then switch somewhere in the middle all the images after changing don't work as good. happened when i put on tool to keep at a slow,full-of-energy pace and then switched to dunno what,and all of a sudden i couldn't work properly anymore,so i changed back to tool-worked like a charm.
    some music works for every genre,but most of the time,i have fixed genres for fixed types of artwork-like dark creepy pics,korn-fast,agressive pics,system of a down, and so on...

    I love listening to ambient techno or electronica or whatever you want to call it when I draw. Right now I'm into Boards of Canada a lot.

    I usually end up switching to something like Of Montreal a ways into the process because techno gets a little boring after like an hour. Haha.

    Savage circus and Whithin temptation are great inspiration. Nightwish is great as well. I love a female vocale on some metal music. But hey, Manowar is a must for medieval.

    I like StreamingSoundtracks.com.

    They play a lot of good scores and symphonic arrangements.

    Good stuff to sketch to (despite the occasional showtoon).

    There is usualy a good, add free stream up on SHOUTcast.

    Actually, this thread inspired me to make a playlist of my favorite art-ing music, heh.

    It goes like this:
    1- Sufjan Stevens - Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, IL
    2- Amon Tobin - Get Your Snack On
    3- Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Let The Cool Goddess Rust Away
    4- The Go! Team - The Power Is On
    5- Neutral Milk Hotel - Gardenhead/Leave Me Alone
    6- Interpol - Say Hello to the Angels
    7- The Shins - Girl On A Wing
    8- Of Montreal - Tim I Wish You Were Born A Girl
    9- Explosions In The Sky - Magic Hours
    10- Radiohead - Life In A Glass House
    11- Boards Of Canada - Dayvan Cowboy
    12- The White Stripes - The Denial Twist
    13- On!Air!Library! - Bread
    14- Stars - Your Ex-Lover Is Dead
    15- Sufjan Stevens - Casimir Pulaski Day

    I was trying to pick songs that inspired me on entirely different levels at once, hah.

    Has anyone else done this or am I just weird?

    even though i breathe metal, when im painting i need something that gets me into that kinda mood. So i usually do something like pink floyd, mars volta, codeseven, coheed, etc.

    A few years ago I made a Tom Waits tape fitting a certain mood of a project I was working on, lots of slow paced dreamy stuff. It was a great help at keeping my mind in the right place

    yep, I'm into electronica and mellow trance (ATB). When I'm feeling more pumped and dancy, I'll put on some Daft Punk, Stardus, Oakenfold, Van Dyke. Been listening to Boards of canada and Four Tet a lot lately. I also love 80's rock (Tears for Fears, Pet Shop Boys, The Cure, etc...)
