Never noticed that before.
Proof of Concept: Slender Man in the Forest
So this was just an attempt to see if I could draw something and make it look at least believable in a photograph setting. Yes it’s small and grainy, but that’s typical for cryptid photos.
I used this public domain image for a base.
PS: I almost forgot, people familiar with cryptid photos may recognise the pose from the Patterson-Gimlin Film.
I am going to try to duplicate that success with another Slender Man Drawing based on a popular political poster. Hopefully nothing will Go WrOnG tHiS tImE Ewige Blumenkraft und Ewige Schlangenkraft ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn H͕ͥ̚A͖̻͎͗͑͋̀ͅI̱̣̲̝̳͍̖̊̎ͯL̫̱̤̣͖͇ͬ̈ͩͬ͗̇ͫ͘ ̥̹̞̱̉̀̕͜ͅZ̢͚̫̠͂̂̒͐ͭͭA͔̜̞͈̭͂͐͊̅̃͜L͕̥̞͙͍͙͎̘̓ͮ̕͢G̶̷̩͚̏͆̇ͨ̓̓̈́͒Ő̔̋҉̱̖͉͎̩͔͎͎
EDIT: So yes I am having to do a lot of it over because I was putting too much contrast in the, er, face. I could just admit I made a mistake but instead I am going to blame the Operator/Illuminati/The Esoteric Order of Dagon/ZALGO for my mistakes.
1 Eldritch Abomination stalking people for uncertain reasons.
1 Intrepid Investigator who is determined to find out the truth, at all costs.
And 1 Unknown Quantity who leaves Cryptic Clues that both Beguile and Frighten the Investigator.
The answer is, surprisingly, not a Slenderman Story but something a little bit older, and based on the West Virginian version of Bigfoot. I’ma go watch it now.
a while back I did fanart for the Slender Man Mythos. Specifically this Uncle Sam-esque number. Turns out that Fuck Yeah, Everyman HYBRID found it, and now it suddenly has a ton more likes and reblogs. Thanks guys :)
