Why yes, I have been getting distracted again and not finishing up 1000 Words.
WIP of Frey playing his electric violin. Though I kind of like the sketchy version as it is.
The violin is pretty much silent to everyone else since it’s plugged into his headphones. He does this when he needs to think about the next strategy to use in cyber warfare.
i find it interesting when in stories people say that playing the violin helps them think, or when they think while playing the violin. it’s usually the exact opposite case for me. when i play, there’s nothing but music in my head. maybe afterwards i’ll be able to concentrate on something really well and “think better” but definitely not during. unless you mean the kind of playing that’s stored in muscle memory….but then i feel like that’s what i used to do during recitals, because i didn’t really understand the music i was playing. when i play a piece now, i actually have to focus…distractions would make the music come out kind of shallow. if i want to be able to think because of music, it has to come from somewhere else. i can’t play and contemplate deep thoughts consciously at the same time. unconsciously, though, is a whole different matter. the only way playing violin would help me decide what to do is if i’m stuck between two decisions that have been plaguing my mind and then i play violin; and then i can pick a decision really easily most of the time.
but seriously, i can’t wait for Fisheye Placebo~♥
The way I look at it is that it’s basically artistic fidgeting. I know when I draw something new, I just concentrate on the drawing and not think about anything else, but there are times when I need to think while my hands also want to move so I just doodle the same eyes and faces repeatedly. I imagine the same can be done with an instrument. I used to play the flute myself and I remember my mind wandering away after playing the same song too many times.
i rly dont wanna finish this so have a sort of bald chick lol?
A bit more progress before bed.
