Simplifying bodies by moni158 Simplifying bodies by moni158
Not exactly a full tutorial but this is pretty much the gist of it. Only leave the important lines or the ones that suggest shape depending on how much you want to simplify it.

This really depends on how realistic you want to draw. I recommend learning anatomy then simplifying just so you know how all the muscles, joints work etc. This will give you a better understanding of making poses and anatomy look more convincing.

Hope this is helpful ;)

Heres a tip to everyone, just copy this, and draw it over and over again until you know how to draw it by heart.

I have a request: could you do some references for a male more so in his younger years? Maybe around 14 or 15, where he is not quite as defined, and more of an average joe kinda character? Would be SUP

Lol, He must. Imagine trying to keep up with all of those fleeing teenagers without running AT ALL. I bet he watches Jason Voorhee's Excessive videos.

You know, I wonder what Slenderman thinks about whilst chasing teenagers.
I wonder if he thinks about how much

I wonder if he ever took track in high school. Or, maybe he does cross country. xD

He makes me think of the Silence in Doctor Who. (That's what they're called, since the actual specie's name is unknown at the moment.)
