Shaggy and the Reluctant GF

Author Comments

Mystery Incorporated is famous for its art style, character developments, and creating relationships within the group. Some of the relationships like Fred and Daphne felt natural... But the love triangle of Scooby, Shaggy, and Velma was just kind of... forced? Creppy? Plus... it kind of made Velma into a stalker psycho girlfriend...

So what if we add Googie, Shaggy's one time 80's girlfriend into the mix? Hilarious hi-jinks I hope!


lol cute

that's sweet :)

i always knew he did not like her i knew it

I agree with Octoraffe. but for me I kind of like how the composition is. But I would love to see the tv in there to however. And the only other thing is Velma, I can't really see her face in this scene. so I don't know what her expression is like. But I think it's dope though. Wish I can draw cartoons like you homie.

She's supposed to look a little stalkerish and pissed.

I love this for the idea, and that you remembered Googie, who is not a very well remembered Scooby Doo character. I also love the attention to detail and the lighting hue that make it obvious its movie night at Shaggy's house despite the fact that the television is not shown. You stayed very true to the look of the characters, and Scooby seems especially accurate. His design is simple, but the line placement is key for him to look like himself. You did a great job with that.

However, I find that the composition lacks a bit. The characters are very small in the frame, and get swallowed up by the horizontal lines of the background, couch, and foreground. Cropping the picture closer to the characters will pull the focus in to them, and make it easier to see Velma's jealous, sneering expression. With so much empty space, the feeling of "Look out, she's behind you!" disappears because the eye can look so many other places. The empty space seems unnecessary for the work.

Nice job overall, and keep it up!

StevRayBro responds:

Great Advice, will keep that in mind on the next piece.
