How interesting it would be if the entity of Slenderman is actually a caretaking spirit that takes abandoned children under his wing, and takes care of them since society wouldn't do that themselves. Slenderman would then be seen as one of the most tragic anti heroes in the creepypasta universe.

Its not likely, but the same time the creature was made as meant to be an internet urban legend. And as these sorts of stories goes, one can interpret them however they want. 
I know in creating this image I was going for something that could be taken many ways, in part is that if you look closely he is absorbing the girl, who is bleeding and very likely dead. But I've had people take it a different direction of how they decide to interpret this image and I'm cool with it. 
creepy caretaker and guardian or major monster. I have my own ways I take the story, playing with concepts and one day hope to finish setting up my 'game' for people to play with me over.  Sort of like one of those murder mystery dinners, only cross country.

Nice! I'm glad you have such an open mind with your artwork. Many people can learn from you.

Art is and always will be very subjective. People who think its only one way are fooling themselves. Just like everyone sees the same moment in time at the same place a little differently than the person next to them, artists only draw a moment of time and our meaning only comes through as well as we can hope and everyone will still see it just a little differently.

Have you ever thought of adding some writing to your channel? You are rather eloquent on addressing certain subjects. I can already see you are a man with great talent. I would love to read your expressive thoughts about different subjects of the world.

I do tend to have writing, just most of that is over either on my fic pages (like ao3 or ffnet) or my tumblr.

The reason I like this is because I read somewhere that children are drawn to Slender. And even if, by some twist of insane luck, he doesn't kill that person, they'll probably die from radiation poisoning.

death or insanity, its what is likely to lead to for all the little children who come to Slender

Indeed. Slender actually caring about someone in a parental way gives me warm fuzziness, but it's not canonically possible. ._.

Very neat pic...simple but well drawn. It looks to me like she (or he??) is asking him for help or comfort, and his posture doesn't seem threatening, almost like he's awkwardly trying to hold him/her back. I like the shading on the face.

thanks! Well overall I was kinda going for a sort of mixed thing, trying to keep one unsure of what is going on in the picture. At the same time seems that close proximity to a slenderman causes things like bleeding from nose ears and mouth. disorientation and other not so fun things.
And as for the character, I tried to go for a slightly gender neutral look, so that people can imprint whatever sex they want on the person/victim.

thanks. I can't really decide what's going on in the picture, other than that human is toast (can't even decide if its a boy or a girl so I drew gender neutral and let the viewer decide)
