What do you do while you work?

  • I listened to creepy pastas for a while, but I had to stop, because I would lay awake at night thinking about all those monsters that were most definitely right next to or under my bed waiting for me. So now I am back to podcasts, movies/series, music or "draw with me" YouTube videos. But if I am really into my work, I work in silence.

  • I find myself watching friends over and over again, it makes me relax because I already know what is going to happen next and I get a good laugh, sometimes i watch real time drawing videos for artists to get inspired

    Today, I am going to be listening/watching Anna Daviscourt's livestream on Behance because she has one of the most soothing, bubbly demeanor's I've engaged with in a long time. I feel like I have permission to do my own work instead of watching constantly. I used to watch livestreams on Twitch for a while, but for some reason it became grueling. I also listen to audiobooks once in a while but they demand a bit too much of my active attention to actually feel like I've accomplished a lot. There are some streaming YouTube channels with lo-fi/chill music I enjoy when trying to wind down , and some other studio music producers (Ikson, and Ehrling) that I rely upon to keep my energy up. Of course, the 3-Point-Perspective podcast is also one I listen to, and I can listen to that one multiple times and glean new understandings every time.

  • Sometimes I listen to podcasts or YouTube videos. More often it will be a movie on my portable DVD player. Harry Potter, Hocus Pocus, and the Santa Claus movies are favorites. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • When I'm painting now I listen to music, no tv, phone is off. Long time back, if I got stuck, I picked up my guitar or flute.

  • @Pinky hocus pocus will be on my watch list come Halloween. It reminds that last year during Christmas I decided to watch all the Christmas Carol movies from oldest to newest as I worked. I think I managed to watch nearly all of them aside from some I couldnt find online

  • Listening to audio while you work

    When he was just starting out as an animator at Disney, Richard Williams once asked the legendary Milt Kahl (chief animator on the Jungle Book) this questionโ€ฆ


  • Recently not watching anything or listening to anything, except the gorgeous summer rains that just won't stop. And the cicada's, now crickets.
    I also have 60's and 70's classic hits repeating in my head/body/soul over and over again.

    Because I'm focused on doing my assignments here at SVSlearn๐Ÿ˜†
    But, that means, I AM watching and listening to something.
    The courses. And they're good.

    Haven't played a video game(can I still call it that?), for years. Because,...I LOVE THEM SOOO MUCH!!!
    If I play a game, I won't give myself time to do anything else.
    I'm not exaggerating!

    @Shyam-Sailus lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ What!? Either this is an exaggeration or heโ€™s severely disabled.

  • I like to mix it up. Audiobooks, music, YouTube tutorials, sermons, podcasts, and sometimes sweet sweet silence and the sounds of birds chirping outside.

  • By the way, at the moment I'm listening to some comedy while I work. If y'all haven't yet heard of Dry Bar Comedy, I just did you a favour, check it out:
