A step by step tutorial on how to draw Slender Man. (AKA Boogieman)

A very basic simplistic way to draw Slender man.

I believe that Slender Man is one of the scariest monsters. The fact that he can teleport, (more than one) extendable appendage and the fact that he has  no face sends chills down my spine. So this inspired me to draw him for a Halloween tutorial.

I like to make my drawings simple so everyone can follow. Use the basic outline I provide to start off your drawing. Then applying your own creativity make the picture your own, not some drawing tutorial that you just followed step by step. 

I hope you enjoy  :D

Step 1: Tools

You can use a regular pencil but i highly do not recommend it. The regular pencil has a hard lead which will leave imprints or grooves when you press harder for darker lines. Having a small pencil set will give you more versatility, having a soft lead that creates dark lines will not ruin your paper and will keep your paper looking nice. 

An eraser to remove mistakes.

Pencil Sharpener to have a fine point when drawing.  
add "NO NO NO NO NO" on the his extra "arms's" for that horror effect
<p>i did</p>
yea lol, i could have done a lot more to this but i felt content with this
<p>It's still a good drawing.</p>
<p>Nice job. I don't mean to offend, but I hate Slenderman because he is a ripoff of Nergal from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. Except Nergal has a face. He looks like a demon(which I.. guess he is) with the ghost's curl on the back of his head. But he even has tentacles like Slenderman! I DETECT A RIPOFF!!!</p>
<p>Im Nine and i did this it kinda took a while cause you know im a kid but i think i did pretty good i put it up in my brotheres horw game drawing website he thought it was nice It was a nice Tartaruil I CANT SPELL</p>
<p>Cool. Slenderman is such a dip and- AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!!! IT'S SLENDERMAN!!!! NOOOOO!!!</p>
<p>I did it and even added &quot;NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO&quot; between all the arms. I love this tutorial, it's so simple.</p>
I wish slender man was real and Jeff the killer. :/
