I listen to some synthwave stuff.
If I'm in the early stages of conceptualization I wont listen to anything. If I'm doing some polishing on a painting or cleaning up linework or cleaning up textures on a model or other non-brainheavy stuff I'll listen to a podcast or an audiobook.
Recently I've just had this on loop because something is broken

I will listen to music or podcasts most of the time while working, but something that's always at the back of my mind is the intro to Richard William's (the director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit) Animator's Survival Kit, where there's a comic about him asking Milt Kahl (the most technically accomplished animator of Disney's heyday, so says popular opinion), if he ever listened to jazz or classical music while working. And then there's 3 whole pages dedicated to Milt whirling around in a fury, shouting, "Of all the S-S-S-STUPID GOD-GOD-GOD-DAMNED questions I-I-I-I've ever heard! I-I-I-I NEVER heard such A-A-A-F-F-F-F-STUPID QUESTION! Iy-iy-iy-iy-I'm not SMART enough to think of more than one thing at a time!!" So Williams' big lesson is: if you want to improve, unplug the headphones, close your office door- and ends with a vintage photo of him wearing a sweatshirt that has the phrase, "Animation is Concentration" stitched on the back.

update: i did the thing, as anticipated it was good for me and my art and I enjoyed it. Join me next week when I'll inexplicably drag my feet on this exact same activity.

Oh my god
Oh my god I drew a (mostly) correct box, with the vanishing points estimated well and with straight lines and shit
I am way more excited about this than I should be, it's box 72 and I've just now managed it!

I'm mostly doing BOXES. It's wearing on me a bit, as I really want to move on to the next Draw a Box lesson. But I'm guessing the tedium is part of the lesson. I'm also doing my best not to rush it so I get the most out of the exercise, but it's really tempting to just sit down and power through a crapload of boxes, accuracy be damned.
I've been kicking around the idea of a 'Draw Along' thread, riffing on the cook-along thread in SE. Different theme other week for a quick sketch or illustration. If people are interested it would be fun to see different takes on the same prompt. Maybe it'd even lure out some more beginners if I post some of my stumbling attempts! Whatcha think?

You're gonna want some break from boxes. Do you have any colors to play with? Can you practice shading with pencil or mixing with paint? Just something for every third day so you don't start dreaming of rotating boxes.
Btw your digital art is really impressive for your first time, I think you really have a good head for it, with the clean lines and all. I am not a master at CSP but if you have any questions about the tools feel free to ask. It's also pretty similar to photoshop in a way so if you see something in a PS tutorial you could most likely do it with CSP. Coloring wise I still prefer using a photoshop style airbrush which is the opposite of clipstudio (I think) so if you run into trouble later on trying to replicate the stuff from tutorial videos it might be that.
