Learn how to draw this horrible monster, SCP-096, in this step-by-step guide from sketching, and inking, all the way to coloring.


SCP-096: The Shy Guy is a humanoid creature from the SCP Foundation.

SCP-096 is a creature that is similar to a human. It is a very tall and thin male. SCP-096 is described as having a very long, thin, and bony body. SCP-096 has no hair, but it has a long, thin, and straight nose like a human. Its jaw can open up to four times the length of an average human's.

SCP-096 doesn't have much of a personality. It mostly stays in a fetal position and cries to itself and when its face is looked at it cries more heavily before furiously going after its prey.

Drawing is a very personal and creative process, and there are many different ways to approach it. Whether you are trying to learn how to draw better or just trying to get better at what you already know, there are a few helpful tips that can make your life easier.

I used several techniques in this artwork, one of them is hatching. Hatching is a drawing technique where you draw lines in one direction and then cross them over to create a different effect. The result looks like a crosshatch pattern that can be used for shading and creating depth in your drawing.

The best way to learn this technique is to practice on a blank sheet of paper or find an image with a repeating pattern that you can copy.
