How to draw a Gothic girl

We are going to see, step by step, how to design a "Gothic" girl in a style much influenced by the Japanese creations on this theme.

First we decide the posture, I want my character to be timid and reserved so I create a suitable pose. hen I draw the outlines which allow me to draw the body. The next step I am going to begin to make her appear Gothic. In order to do this I am going to research to correctly recreate this style which was influenced by 19th century European clothing.

Black is essential for the Gothic style and now is the time to put a lot of black in the drawing, but be aware to keep some light areas in order not to make it too "heavy".

When I have completed the main lines of the style, I can move on to the details. This style lends itself to careful, small details so make sure you include these.
