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
An eraser to remove mistakes.
Pencil Sharpener to have a fine point when drawing.
Step 2: Outline: Basic Head
The neck is pretty straight forward.
Step 3: Outline: Body and Legs
*Draw a circle for where the tie folds in between the collar. Start drawing down and a little bit out ,then bring it in to finish it off (the whole tie is not going to be drawn because the suit is going to be buttoned up).
*To draw the button up part, start at the bottom outside end. Make it curve up some to give it a bit of detail. When the lines meet up, make the right line go over the left to draw the part that folds outwards.
*For the shoulders start at the same bottom outside point of the collar. Draw this line very straight to give him a slimmer/ fancy look.
*Draw the arms coming out at an angle to give him a look like his arms are stretched out like he is going for a hug, on this part you can either have is arms at full existent going off the page (which is what i did) or you can have his (its) arms at normal length.
*For the body start drawing the line pointing where the tip of the shoulder is and make it curve in to give him a tall lengthy look and bring them back out about to the same width from when you start. make this part long like hes extending out wards.
*The legs are simple,draw the outline of the legs going out at an angle and draw a line in the middle to make it seem like his legs are relatively closed, draw this line short and lower so it seems like hes stretching outwards.
*To finish up bring the center line down to connect the suit.
Step 4: Outline: Extra Arms
Step 5: Darken Lines (Add Some Minor Details)
Step 6: Shading
Lets shade the tentacle arms first. Take your darker pencil and fill in-between the lines you made. Shade in a vertical way.
I used a lighter shade for the suit. Shading in a horizontal way.
When done, you can either leave it as is, blend with a piece of paper or blending stump, or use your finger. The tentacles smooth it to the point where it looks like one solid color. The suit I would blend, but leave it to where you see some of the line to give it that shadowy, spooky look.
Step 7: Clean the Page Up
Step 8: Shade Background Or...
If you leave it blank just keep in mind you can draw a background.
Step 9: Red Tie
Step 10: Finished! :D
