As dumb as this will sound, lately I've been listening to a lot of movie and video game original sound tracks. The real "epic" kinda orchestra-style music. I find it really helps me with my drawings and idea creation when I do actually sit down to try and draw. Good examples include... Mass Effect 2 - The Suicide Mission - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTsD2FjmLsw The Dark Knight Rises - Main theme - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHFA_wEK_00 Two Steps from Hell - Dragon Rider (and others) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EptSSXNHIfg I listen to music at http://www.pandora.com - it's a pretty cool Internet radio station where you type in what you wanna listen to, and it'll bring up that music as well as other music from similar genres. So for example, if you typed in "Korn" you'd probably get Korn as well as other music similar to Korn on your playlist. Only problem with Pandora is you can't skip too many soundtracks otherwise it'll say something like, due to music licensing issues you can only skip so many soundtracks per day.
