How to Draw a Goth Vampire

Step 1.

Let's create the body guides so we can sketch out the vampire in portion. Start with the head and torso guide shapes like you see here.

Step 2.

Since this vampire is being drawn from a back view, her face is turned just enough to see her profile. Having said that, define the shape of her face using the guide you made in step one starting with the forehead, nose and mouth or lips.

Step 3.

Finish the head shape by sketching out the long hair, then draw the lining that forms the face. The hair is actually used to frame the face.

Step 4.

Detail inside the ear, then draw the closed eye as well as the long lashes. Also add the definition to the nose to create a nostril.

Step 5.

Now sketch out her shoulder, then draw the arm which is only going to be viewed from the back.

Step 6.

Simply sketch out the shape of her chest, then draw in some fingers as they clutch to her arm.

Step 7.

I wanted this vampire girl to be long and slender, so you will now sketch out the shape of her back, and then form the waist, hips and crinkle on the waist from her dress.

Step 8.

All you have to do here is draw in the back part of the dress followed by the closure line which is almost always a zipper. Add the bones from her shoulders, then the definition to the middle part of her back.

Step 9.

And finally, draw in the long, thick, straight hair that falls down from her face. Erase the mistakes, then you are done.

Step 10.

Here is the line art when finished. Now you can go ahead and choose to have this vampire a Goth girl, or not.

I haven't done any cool vampires in a while and I know Halloween isn't really close to being here. I just had the urge to make a tut on "how to draw a Goth vampire", step by step. Since a lot of people have been liking those angels with the black and white concept, I thought would be something that everyone can love and have fun with. You don't have to make your vampire Gothic if you don't want. Instead you can omit the blood and black hair and add something different if you like. Drawing a Goth style vampire should prove to be interesting since I haven't done one in the past. Thanks a lot guys and enjoy.
