And if a double decker bus, if it crashes into us by colorlesscupcake And if a double decker bus, if it crashes into us by colorlesscupcake
To die by your side,
such a heavenly way to die.

And if a ten ton truck
kills the both of us

To die by your side,
well,
the pleasure, the privilege is mine

there is a light that never goes out

I'm probably way off, but it's my current headcanon that you read the lyrics to a song at random, without listening to the music. Then you find other music you think matches the mood, and draw to a theme blending the two sources.

I say this because I'm usually surprised at the tone of the songs that you reference in the descriptions... they don't seem to match hardly ever.

I find the darker side of lyrics, basically.
I could listen to completely happy songs and find the sadness in a few lines or so.
Turn things around~
That's why they sometimes don't sound like they go together.

Also I was listening to the Anberlin version if that helps.

I love finding new songs, and I've been told atleast by one person that the trick to successfully drawing all day is to make sure the music is helping you and not distracting; what may work for an hour might not be what you need for the next, etc.

Ha! Iunno if it's trouble, but I know it'd save me a bit if you'd more regularly set the link somewhere amongst the lyrics (even if it's just on one letter somewhere in there, or maybe on a comma or period)? Whenever I hit your gallery and view pieces for every piece I've gotta open a search for the lyrics, find the song and artist, then open another tab so start playing it.

I can see this scene just a bit better with the Anberlin cover. Even when there aren't alternate versions, though, I'm often surprised by how intense your interpretations can be :D (Big Grin) . Thanks for the insight into your process, here.

I apologize for not always having the song up. It's something I thought no one cared about, honestly. Until someone recently asked me to do it. I have been trying more recently to do that~ With my more recent art I usually post a link. Sometimes I forget </3 But I hope it's better.

But thanks so much :3 for everything. Your ideas and time.
For me, I can listen to the same song all day. I usually listen to one song the whole picture.
The only way I can even listen to music is one song on repeat for a good while. A lot of people think it's weird.

Sometimes I'll put on a long mix of a certain genre, but if there's a particularly strong idea or unique mood attached to one song that I need to keep in my head maintained I will loop it.

Someone told me recently that finding the right music (and making sure you change it if your mood changes in process) is the key to drawing for long periods on-end. I think there's some credence to this.
