In this dark gloomy tutorial I will be showing you how to draw a Gothic elf girl. I guess you may know by now I’m some what of a Gothic chic myself. Yeah it’s true I like Marilyn Manson, and all those crazy sounding bands. But I also enjoy classical, classic rock and roll, hard rock heavy metal, head banging metal and even some oldies from the 60’s. Being a Goth to me is like expressing my artistic side. Even though wearing all black with the occasional pink and red hidden in the mix some what seems gloomy, I see black as an open window of endless possibilities. I never like to have a limit on what I can accomplish in life with my goals and dreams. I really do enjoy drawing for people that don’t know how to draw yet or just need a little work. I have been drawing since I was very, very young, and to me drawing, painting, and sketching helps me escape to another world that I can conjure up without leaving home. I guess you could also say that I’m a home body. I mean yeah, I like going out and enjoying myself with my very few friends by going to the mall and walking around and stuff like that, but being as a whole individual is better than eating ice cream in 90 degree weather. I’m a city girl, and being in the city means being crowded and cramped and I definitely don’t like feeling like that at all. This drawing of the Gothic elf girl is based on me I guess. I mean I too have black hair combed to the side, except it’s not long and it doesn’t cover my eye. I love wearing my fish net arm bands and wearing black make-up as well. In this drawing she has hollow looking dead white eyes but yet she still has a welcoming smile. The eyes represent being a reserved individual, but the smile says “hello, I am not a gloomy person with horrible issues”. She is also wearing striped leggings that are cut off at the ankle with my favorite color nail polish, black. I love the way I did her dress too I think it looks so nice and ruffled. Well in this tutorial you will learn how to draw a Gothic Elf girl step by step with easy to read instructions. I hope you have fun and be creative color her your colors if you like.
