Round Up the Usual Suspects

Remember the girls with the sunglasses I drew awhile back? This is what spawned from that. It's a suspenseful murder mystery that takes place inside of a "hip" roller diner called Yao Yao Burger.
And the following is what you could call "my process" all of it's messy glory.

Whenever I work on a certain project, I tend to make a "soundtrack" for it. For me, a matching genre of music helps get me into the mood of that particular world. Whenever I work on Yao Yao Burger, I like to listen to a mix of "Robots in Disguise", "Hadouken", and the soundtrack from my favorite video game "Bust a Groove".

However, this particular song by GD&TOP recently made it onto my Yao Yao soundtrack. Mostly because the video is rocking! That's the world I want to live in.

Does anyone else make "soundtracks"? What do you like to listen to when you draw?


  1. These are great! I love the agent guys with the afros :D

    ...and that girl has got some serious hips!


  2. Thanks Nate! I had a lot of fun with my crazy agents! XD

  3. I make soundtracks ALL THE TIME yuki. :)
    Usually, it's the music that inspires a mood and direction for the art or story.
    And I was totally thinking of Bust a groove for something like this too!
    The big guy reminded me of Ham! 'very very very very very very good!' <3

  4. I knew you would understand the reference, Nano! Now I wish I had my playstation so we could play games together again!
