How To Draw A Gothic Girl

Step 1.

In this first step you will be drawing out the begining guidelines for the goth girl. Start by drawing out the head with facial guidelines drawn in. Then draw out the shape of the body. After you do that draw out the guidelines including the shapes of the legs. After you do this you can move onto the next step.

Step 2.

As you can see the female goth girl is already starting to take form. Now here you will sketch out her hair. At this point you can sketch in any hair style you wish. Next draw out the eye brows and eye lines. Now move down and shape out her left arm and hand along with the lining for the shirt which is kid belly high. On the right hand side draw out the shape of her breast. Now you can finish sketching in the detail to the Tripp pants she is wearing along with finishing off the bottom of her pants as well.

Step 3.

Here in this step all you will be doing is detailing her hair a bit more and detail her Tripp pants as well. Tripp pants are the pants that have chains and belts hanging from everywhere. That is the next thing you will be doing. You will also have to draw out the shape of her shoes as well. A Gothic girl looks like the girl we are drawing today.

Step 4.

In this step things start to become more detailed. Start by detailing the goth girls hair as well as her eyes, nose, and mouth. As you know Gothic looking chicks wear heavy black eyeliner. Next draw out the lining for her collar on her tee then draw out the Gothic cross necklace. Now detail her shirt and her pants a bit more. Now draw draw out the other strap that is on the back of her pants.

Step 5.

Next what you will do is sketch in even more detail on the other side of her hair style. Now draw in the chains that are connected to the loops around her waist. After that is all taken care of you can erase all the guidelines and circle shapes to clean up your sketch.

Step 6.

This is what your Gothic girl should look like when you are finished. Now all you have to do is color her in with some awesome Gothic colors. That will do it for now on this tutorial on how to draw a Gothic girl.

Welcome to DragoArt again. This time we are going to draw a Gothic girl. What’s a Goth? Good question, when everyone sees a Goth for the first time they always wonder ‘wow so much black and chains.’ That’s because Gothic fashion consists of baggy black chained paints, black band tees, females usually wear long black dresses or corsets, large knee high leather boots, fishnet arm attachments, and large hair extensions. A typical female Goth hairstyle is long, black with bangs. And a male Goth hairstyle is a colored Mohawk, spiked long hair, long black hair, or long blonde hair. Everyone stereotypes a Goth as being obsessed with vampires or claiming that they are one. Also Goths are stereotyped at participating in Satanic or Pagan rituals. They say that a Goth would drink blood of a human and sacrifice themselves to Satan. It’s also said that Goths are depressed and evil beings. That they hate humanity and that they have similar feelings like that of an Emo child. This for a fact is not true. All Goths are not depressed and participate in satanic rituals. In fact Goths can be happy, nice, intelligent, and organized beings. They could be like a normal human and just adore black fetish. Everyone is their own person. The same goes for Emo people. What’s the difference between a Goth and Emo? It’s a short for emotional. That means that emo people are very emotional. Also there’s a difference between a Goth’s styles. The typical wardrobe of this depressing group are tight black pants or jeans, skin tight shirts, large tongued skater shoes or Converses, studded belts and bracelets, and an interesting hair style. A typical emo hairstyle consists of long pieces of hair covering half their faces. The hair can be spiked, bleached, dyed, or really short and spiked. How to know a Goth is a poser? What is a poser? A poser is someone who tries to be something they’re not. For instance, a poser Goth is someone who wears the clothes of a Goth but loves preppy activities. This means that they are not dedicated to the subculture and just wear the clothing to fit in. They also constantly claim that they are Goth and prevail doing their activities. Anyways I drew this girl freehandedly on my Wacom intuos3 tablet. I used the tablet with Photoshop CS. I got the grunge idea from my previous tutorial, how to draw a Gothic cross. Well I hope this tutorial will help you better on drawing Goths. Have fun!
