The primary aspect making gothic drawings is to observe and watch other gothic artists’ work. Make sure that you determine them closely. See how they use colours, and how they make their drawings appealing. Read books that are written over the gothic art, visit famous art galleries that have a wide collection of gothic paintings and drawings. Once you have closely monitored other artists’ work, only then you will have an idea on which subject and areas need to be addressed while making gothic drawings.
Generate an idea. Without an idea, you will be sitting blank minded in front of the drawing paper. Once you have decided what you want to draw, you start making a rough sketch about it.
Think hard about what the background, setting and colours for your drawing. However, if you are only interested in drawing a simple gothic design, then you should skip about the background. Dark forests, ancient ruins, deserted places and graveyards are some of the common examples of backgrounds that are used in a gothic art.
Now focus your attention towards drawing your central figures. People in dark and evil situations, animals that strike fear in one’s mind and supernatural creatures are some of the most common examples of central figures used in a gothic drawing.
Shadows play an important role in enhancing the gothic drawings. Make sure that you pay genuine attention towards making shadows in your drawing.
Once you are done drawing the picture, make sure that you name it accordingly, which should be dark and gothic as well.
