Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw Gothic surrealism. So this is a pretty advanced concept. Surrealism is, it's sort of, kind of an art that juxtaposes unexpected elements together, and so it creates like a surprise visually. So I'm going to draw in a face of a girl, and I want it to be kind of looking straight on, and I'm going to give her a goth straight up and down hair. Gothic is kind of, refers to dark, kind of a dark serious style. So there's her goth hairstyle coming straight down, there's her neck. And I'm going to borrow from the famous surrealist Rene Magritte, and I'm going to draw an apple right in front of her face, right in the space where her face would be there's an apple, so there that is, that says surrealism, it's a very famous image, apple in front of the face, so this is this goth girl has that, and instead of the classic bowler hat, she's going to have a miniature top hat on the side of her head, just kind of an ornamental hairstyle decoration there, so she's got that on the side, and put some clouds, surrealist were big on clouds, and I'll put those in, and give her a frilly collar, a black dress, puffy shoulders, for her goth style, and she has a crow on her shoulder, kind of a goth touch there, and instead of a sun in the sky, let's put a skull, there's the eye sockets. And that is how you could draw Gothic surrealism.
