The slender man by drago-w The slender man by drago-w
so here is my rendition of the internet fable, 'the slender man.'

rather than go with the classic rendition of a dude with no face in a suit and normally sporting a couple extra arms, i decided to design it with alot of inspiration from the old german picture, 'der ritter,' [link]

i hope you like people :)

Pen paper and photoshop.

I remember seeing this creature in a picture I was looking at. The man who started drawing these pictures is said to be the man alive to ever see Slender Man. They say that after his third drawing Slender killed him.

I like this. Slenderman as he may have appeared in the 1500's. Though I'm not sure if the titular "ritter" is slenderman or the knight he's fighting, as "der ritter" appears to mean "the knight".

He knows you're eyeing his third leg, and he isn't pleased.

I dont know. as i understand the people central to making this character took the old painting der ritter and a couple others and made them a part of the slender man's story.
