How to Draw a Gothic Chibi

Artist: Dawn / April 2, 2017

Step 1.

Like always we will start with some guides. Draw the head and body guide first, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Next, define the shape of the girl's face, then begin drawing in the eyes.

Step 3.

We will now draw in the large bow in her hair which has a small skull in the center for the knot.

Step 4.

Here you will add the dimples in the bow, then draw in the small skull shaped earrings to match the bow. When that is done add another layer of line for the eyes.

Step 5.

We will now draw in the collar for her shirt and then draw the arms which are cropped up towards her chest. Add some fingers and creases on the sleeves.

Step 6.

Draw in the rest of the shirt which looks more like a dress. There are some pleats and there is also a crisscross pattern on the front of her shirt/dress.

Step 7.

After you draw in her legs, you can finish off your Gothic chibi by drawing the long thick hair. Add some chunks that stick up and stand out. Erase your guides and mistakes if you made any.

Step 8.

Color in your drawing when you are all done. You can choose to go black and white or any other shade you like.

Description: The story with this lesson is simple. I received a request for me to make a lesson on a Gothic style doll, but instead I decided to make a tutorial that looked like a doll, but it's titled how to draw a Gothic chibi, step by step. This is probably one of my favorite drawings of anything Gothic. The chibi stands there with her arms crossed to show how reserved she is. I love her hair, clothes and face. Even though there is no mouth, you can kind of get the idea on how she would look with one. I haven't drawn any chibi characters in a while, so this is my daily dose. I hope you enjoy drawing this Gothic chibi. I shall return in a bit so stay tuned in to see what pops up next.
