On one hand the design is quite nice and creepy in it's own right, however on the other I am not buying this thing is the same thing that is documented on the 'log' in the wiki. If it wasn't actually physically cumbersome, maybe it be different, I get it's seven feet but I'm not seeing this as a convicning design as something that can absorb bullets in the face and still be wiping out a squad. Anyone with solid boots would smash those ankles for one. The arms have no muscle and too long for their own good.

I am being a little too critical here but for what the creature was intended I'd say he works better as lone freak that is dangerous to one person but is something that is living in constant pain because of how poorly starved and frail it actually looks.

Lol he's an SCP. An anomalous object. Part of his anomaly is that he has incredible regenerative health, and that he's virtually indestructable. "Breaking its ankle" would only piss it off. 

Don't overanalyze the anatomy of an SCP. The whole point of them is that they're weird, and they work when they shouldn't. How can a concrete-and-rebar sculpture move without aid, and snap people's necks as long as they aren't looking? How can a seemingly empty cardboard box release hundreds of sentient origami dragons? And finally; how can a frail, malnourished and disfigured humanoid be able to run at extreme speeds and take a whole squad's worth of bullets? The answer is don't think about it, let what it is be what it is.


Edit: I just finished reading all of what you said, something I should've done in the first place. It looks like someone else has already said pretty much what I just did, too.

It's not one of my favorite SCPs, it's overpowered, and the author might've been trying a little too hard trying to make it scary. In reality, it's more boring than scary and the description clashes with the appearance, which can be confusing.

I guess it can also be viewed as scary though, when you think that "Aaah, it doesn't look like it's supposed to do that. How does it do that? That's weird and I'm scared."

Why are you quoting something I clearly read before? The whole point of the comment was that the creature was unfeasible as something that would wipe out a squad. If your quoting under the assumption i didn't read it, then you are very much mistaken and is just time wasting on your part.

They're just pointing out that the painting is an accurate portrayal of what's written on the site, since you said "I am not buying this thing is the same thing that is documented on the 'log' in the wiki." It seems you have a problem with the feasibility of the SCP itself, but you're criticizing the art.

I wouldn't call a person throwing a quote and nothing else 'pointing out' anything, where I come from that's just being called unhelpful.

I think shy guy is jus too gnarly to be feasible or not that different from other iterations, creepy naked bald things like that been around in popular media since chris Cunningham's input on the music video 'come to daddy' And I think chris made a more intimidating version of a tall creepy guy as a comparison.

Personally if I wanted to deal with something like that I just have a riot water cannon full of nitric acid sprayed on the thing, evaporating and decomposing acids are of course dangerous to breathe with dehydrating effects on organic materials and strongly exothermic reactions with moisture. If it were down to me then yeah I would do that on something that clearly isn't human, why waste lives to deal with a monster? A monster with claws is nothing compared to the monster with the ideas.

It is a bit of both, in regards to the proportion of the creature and for what it's intended. As a stand alone it's a great piece, but comparing to what's written on the log I'm not as convinced.

And I only honestly have an issue with people who throw in a quote and with no input from their own with the assumption on their part that I haven't read anything. I don't really have time for that kind of arrogance.

Sorry if i'm a bit late on this but i think that's the point of the creature, it doesn't look like it can take out an entire squad because it physically shouldn't, most of the things it does shouldn't be physically possible either, like running at three-digit speed, breaking through any material and still be alive even with half his body destroyed. All of that happened, so theorically you COULD snap its ankles like you said, but it's not going to stop it if you've seen its face.

Also, on the other hand, it seems like its resistance/strength is completely irrelevant to its musculature, considering that it can destroy any walls standing in its path with ease. I think the idea of something that looks so fragile being practically an unstoppable force kind of gives an uncanny valley vibe and that's what makes it scary in the first place.

EDIT: grammar corrections

Your not late for your own opinion, any argument providing it's relevance to a subject is always welcome.

I pretty much made my own case on the issue, to clarify the art isn't at fault but looking at the design I don't see this as an entity that tears walls and needs an anti tank round to keep it at bay?

To be fair the writing behind that got out of hand, there was a unnecessary sense of "power-scaling" to this thing as if the author felt the backstory had to compete against other creatures that people wrote for the site. It would be enough to say disturbed creature that is violent and just unnatural to the eye would be suffice and just work around that. However to me this is not the design of a creature I envision that could do that. I don't see this as a reflection as the backstory but in all fairness the backstory got out of hand in it's own mythos setup.

Ah, yeah, totally, I can see what you mean there.

It's like, the appearance they set up for the creature and the writing work on their own but that's all they have, after that, they clash with each other because the character is basically like a Skinny, Over-Powered Hulk. It doesn't blend well properly, and that's an issue with the SCP in the first place like you said.

Have in mind this is one of the first ones too (below 100) so it may've been affected by the "it's good as long as it's creepy" mentality that a lot of early SCP's usually had.

Same effects if you see him in person they showed a photo of shy guy to the artist in a pod in the marina trench for him to draw it. Shy guy broke out of the facility which was halfway across the world and got to the guy in the pod.
