    I prefer quietness in most cases. If i'm doing something for a friend, noise helps

    I prefer listening to my tunes while drawing, typically an album of music that helps set the scene. But that's just me.

    Depends on what it is for. For schoolwork I usually prefer it quiet, but if I'm doing creative work I like to pair a theme with what I'm working on to help me focus on it.

    I like to listen to music, but not my usual heavy metal: it can't have any words. To accommodate this need, I've found a few youtube channels that post 1-3 hour long compilations of dramatic, cinematic music. Things you would hear in movie backgrounds or trailers. This way the vocabulary of the music doesn't influence me as much, but I can still have some emotional input as I write.

    I listen to music while drawing. In fact it is probably the only thing that gives me the motivation to draw in the first place.
    For writing though I don't really listen to anything because I find it can be a bit distracting. If I do have music on it is usually some sort of cinematic music, or something quiet and without any vocals.

    When writing, I always need music, so I tend to put on a vaporwave hour long mix and go on from there. Otherwise, I can't focus properly. Everything else, I don't mind silence. But outside noise in general when I'm working on something- people talking, a TV on, etc- it's just too much of a distraction. Drives me insane.

    While drawing I prefer to have music playing, but when I'm writing it has to be in silence. I have trouble doing either when there's voices in the background, or when someone's watching me do it.

    For 4 years, in highschool, my art teacher played music/the radio and let students play their own music on rare occasions every day. Now I can't really concentrate on art without music or something in the background. I usually keep the music relating to the art idea I have in mind- if it's Pokémon related, I'm gonna play a couple of Pokémon music; if it's something horror related I'm going to pull up scary songs or horror movie music.

    I tend to work in silence. Due to over stimulation issues, the only way for me to focus and get my thoughts down on paper is in a quite room. However, when I'm building a particular scene, I may want to play music that fits the tone. It helps my mind flow in a way that can't be done in silence.

    When I draw things I know will take a while to do, I usually pull up a chill music mix video as it really helps me focus and the chill mood of the music is just relaxing to have because art can get frustrating sometimes. When I write, I almost always write in silence because the sound of the keyboard to me is strangely more effective as an ambiance than music. The rare times I do listen to music when writing it has to be purely instrumental as I could accidentally write the words I'm hearing instead of what I'm thinking of.

    Music and normally something without lyrics if I am writing. I try to match the mood of what I am doing as well so when writing Pokémon fiction I would put on adventurous and upbeat soundtracks like the Bastion OST or the various fantasy soundtracks found on youtube. When doing something more somber I will switch to something like the Game of Thrones soundtracks.

    I usually can't work on art and stuff in complete silence for some reason??? When I draw I'll usually set up a stream and let it play while I listen, and when I write I'll find playlists without lyrics and work while listening to that.

    I mean I can do stuff in silence but I prefer something to fill the silence because it gets kinda lonesone sometimes...

    I always listen to some sort of music when working on... well... anything. Silence starts bugging me reeeaaaal quick. I need white noise to really concentrate.

    I prefer to have music on when I'm writing or drawing, but contrary to the general consensus here, I pretty much always listen to music with vocals, and the music I'm listening to usually has no correlation to what I'm writing or drawing. I go through musical phases so I just put on whatever's making me feel creative at the moment. I can write and draw in silence fine, of course, but I much prefer having music on (possibly because I'm an obsessive multitasker).

    Listening to music usually helps me best. When music isn't available, quiet is the next best thing.

    There has to be noise when I"m drawing. If I'm alone I'm listening to music or watching a movie. If I'm drawing with my friend irl I usually talk to her. I can't stand it being quiet when I'm working on something.

    When drawing on computer, music really helps me I think. But traditional? Honestly I can't even recall, I don't really pay attention if I talk to myself or not, but I think I don't need music as much? I dunno.

    I prefer listening to music, but sometimes if I'm really into what I'm doing, the music will stop and I won't even notice for a while.
