Even today, from time to time I'll play one of the Rocky movies (except for number 5) while I draw and it provides a focus for producing artwork too. However, I do have to control myself when the Rocky theme comes on and force myself to stay seated and not jog around the room boxing the air. But other than that, it's not the distraction you'd think it would be! I mostly just listen to the movie when I draw anyway.
I haven't seen one of the Rocky movies for a while. It may be time to watch one again! Yo Rocky!
