How to Draw Emo Girls

Step 1.


First off, a small tip on eyes. 'Emo' culture is probably the leading market for eyeliner. So don't worry about going overboard. Male and females are known to wear a lot of dark makeup around their eyes because it makes them pop more. Shown here are    

Step 2.


Piercings are a big thing. Here are a few that you can get that look pretty great with the 'emo' look. There are, of course, more combinations and more piercings that you can get, so go have a look on google.

Step 3.


HAIR. One of the biggest factors in emo culture. Shown here are a few of the fringes i really like. 1) The heavy straight fringe. You can see how far back it starts from the red dot. Its usually cut dead straight at the eyebrows or top of the eye.

Step 8.


Now some pants would be a good idea. skintight jeans work great. Just follow the leg guides and add some folds where the joints are. Put in some pockets and the seams at the sides and voila! You have skinnies.

Step 9.


Accessories are a good way to make that plain outfit look a little bit more interesting. While the base clothes are simple, dont worry about giving them some fun extras. Ive added stripy arm warmers here. Stripes always look good with this type of fa   

Step 10.


Finally, erase the parts of the body showing under the accessories (like the belts). I added a nice pair of thick rimmed glasses, which are very typical in this particular style. I find they make her look slightly girlier. Colour her in (in this case
