Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be framed and stored in a standard contiment vault.
Update: Digital instances are to be digitally archived.

SCP-XXXX has been granted access to drawing equipment and supplies. Permission has been granted for SCP-XXXX to keep any additional SCP-XXXX-1 instances not required for testing.


Digital instance of SCP-XXXX-1, produced 12/11/2018.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a male human, formerly [REDACTED]. SCP-XXXX is capable of producing artwork of an anomalous nature.

SCP-XXXX-1 are stylized pencil drawings produced by SCP-XXXX. All instances include anthropomorphised characters based on various media franchises favoured by SCP-XXXX, depicting characters residing in outdoor or rural locations such as forests, rivers, grassy terrain, etc.

When viewed, subjects will perceive SCP-XXXX-1 instances to animate for several seconds. Characters will often interact with one another and scenery while natural terrain will move as expected. Instances will return to their original state after several seconds, until another additional viewing wherein they will animate identically as before. Despite any criticisms viewers may feel towards SCP-XXXX-1, instances are always perceived as being well drawn and pleasant to view.

SCP-XXXX is completely incapable of perceiving the anomalous properties of its own artwork1. SCP-XXXX primarily expresses negativety towards produced pieces; often claiming they could be much better and to be below their own personal standards. In general SCP-XXXX often lacks motivation to draw, yet expresses a deep desire to pursue art as a career, despite such shortcomings they project on themselves.

Addendum 1 - Partial Testing Log XXXX-032

Addendum 2: Since containment, SCP-XXXX has expressed decreasing motivation to produce SCP-XXXX-1. Increased positive reassurance and constructive feedback is recommend in-order to keep SCP-XXXX in an optimal mental state.

Addendum 3: It has been discovered that SCP-XXXX-1 instances may be created using a drawing tablet. Instances retain anomalous properties only when presented in a digital format.

Additionally, the exploration of SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties through the use of a drawing tablet has improved their demeanour and motivation to draw significantly. While only on occasion, SCP-XXXX shows the capability to perceive the anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX-1 using a tablet.

Update: Since 18/02/2019, any new artwork produced by SCP-XXXX no longer present any anomalous properties. When questioned, SCP-XXXX stated that they had been feeling rather satisfied with their artwork as of recent, feeling that they could start drawing for themselves, rather than others.

Following testing, SCP-XXXX’s anomalous properties were confirmed to have ceased and was re-classified as Neutralised. SCP-XXXX was reintegrated back into its previous home and remains under Foundation observation for any future signs of anomalous re-manifestation.

Addendum 4: As of 26/03/2019, SCP-XXXX has begun producing artwork manifesting similar emotional effects to SCP-XXXX-1 when viewed by subjects. Investigation and possible re-classification are underway.

Update: Upon further investigation, no actual visual anomalous phenomena were found. Effects felt when viewing the pieces were confirmed to be non-anomalous; SCP-XXXX had simply improved their artwork.
