My little contribution

Hey all! I finally got some pictures of my work, I had to take them with my cellphone so I apologize in advance for the poor quality. But here's some stuff out of my sketchbook:

I really enjoy working with watercolor. I like the unpredictability of it. I'm usually so anal about detail and stuff so this is a nice break from that.

Anyway, for an 'intelligent question'... I was just curious how you all felt about music and artwork. Do you feel that there's more of a connection when you've got music to listen to? If so, what is it that you prefer to hear when drawing (or painting)? Do you think its more of a distraction?

I personally prefer music. I tend to listen to a lot of things that are loud and dramatic, probably stuff that most would find distracting. However, when I listen to certain bands or songs I find that it gives me a 'rhythm' to follow. It helps me get into my own little world and block out visual distraction so I can focus on what I'm working on. It doesn't necessarily affect what the drawing looks like, but more the way I see things and feel when I'm working, I guess in a way I found that it makes me feel more passionate about my work. I'd like to hear other peoples' responses. I think it'd be interesting considering our recent 'musical conflicts' with the stereo in class, which I find quite amusing more than anything else. :)

It really depends on what I am working on really, if I am just letting loose it's fine then. Other wise I use music to relax if I have to focusing way to much on something and need to step back rather than while I am working. Class would not be the same with out stereo battles to think of it. :D.
