How to Draw Slenderman

Artist: Dawn / January 22, 2017

Step 1.

The first thing we need to do is draw Slenderman's body pose in a frame or mannequin type style. Make the guide shapes with the head first, then the torso and hip area. Don't forget about the limb guides.

Step 2.

Define the shape of Slenderman's head and face structure like so.

Step 3.

Now we will sketch out some of his body pose starting with the mid section of his torso. Draw the shape of the rib, waist and hips. Notice that he is standing in a tilted pose.

Step 4.

Next, draw the shape of his neck, then the shoulders. When that is done you can draw the long gangling arms which also happen to be his sleeves.

Step 5.

Detail the torso by drawing the collar line for the suit jacket, then draw in the ends of the jacket design.

Step 6.

Give Slenderman a tie, shirt collar and some buttons that go down the suit jacket.

Step 7.

All you have to do here is draw the rest of the hips, then draw the long skinny legs.

Step 8.

We will tackle the task of drawing Slenderman's hands. As you can see the fingers are long, creepy and sort of bony.

Step 9.

Up next, draw the rest of Slenderman's fingers like so, then add some detail to the jacket.

Step 10.

Add some pleated lines down the legs or pants, then give Slenderman a pocket.

Step 11.

We will begin the drawing process to create the long octopus like arms that are attached to his back.

Step 12.

Give the long arms some shape by adding thickness to them.

Step 13.

Draw in more back arms like so, then proceed to step fourteen.

Step 14.

Again, thicken the arm by adding the other side of the arm.

Step 15.

Make two more limbs, and proceed to step sixteen.

Step 16.

Thicken the limbs once again.

Step 17.

Draw another arm.

Step 18.

And another which also happens to be the last of them. Erase the guidelines and guide shapes, as well as the mistakes.

Step 19.

The line art should come out looking like so. Color in this popular creepy figure to finish off the lesson.
