#introductions I'm Inez. I go by Basic Banshee. I'm a musician. I play clarinet. I'm a vocalist. I sing mostly jazz and classical rep. I compose music. I was a music/biology major in undergrad.
I'm a big fan of EDM, vaporwave, jazz, classical music, kpop, musicals, opera, and video game music.
I'm slowly getting back into violin and piano.
I'm starting to learn how to draw. If anyone has any beginner tips and sources, that would be super duper appreciated. My beginner drawing goal is to make myself a decent witchsona.
I'm in love with art styles from anime like Sound Euphonium, Your Lie in April, Little Witch Academia, Studio Ghibli, and Madoka Magica. I'm in love with Maya Kern's art style.
For your sake, use a lot of reference.
For (general) people drawing, I'd start nailing the general proportions and volumes (detailed anatomy can come after).
For anime drawing, study the proportions of a show you like. See how far they space the eyes, where they place the nose, how big is the head compared to the body for example. Try to copy those proportions as best you can, and maybe use their model sheets. Fine details can be applied afterwards.
These are just general tips, but just having fun at this point is key. Enjoy the process of creating and learning, and welcome! :)
