Scooby-Doo: Charlie the Funland Robot

 Another Scooby-Doo monster sketch. This creepy guy is Charlie the Funland Robot from the episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! titled "Foul Play in Funland" (Season 1, Episode 8). What I particularly love about this guy is that he was one of the creepy faces in the intro to the show.
 This is a screenshot of Charlie from the episode. And here's some Scooby trivia: This was the first time in the series where the villain wasn't someone in diguise. Charlie was a real malfunctioning robot that someone sabotaged.

 He's not the most monster-y of the Scooby villains, I know. But of the handful that I've done so far, he was the most fun to draw.

 Here's my original sketch and the color clean-up, done in Photoshop. I tried to make him look like something that could've been kid-friendly, but would also scare the bejeezus out of you in a dark alley. I thought he might look kinda cool if I opened his mouth a little, but once I colored him, I thought he looked more spooky & mysterious with his mouth closed. Hope you like!

Scooby-Doo: The Spooky Space Kook

It's probably no surprise to anyone that I used to love Scooby-Doo when I was a kid, especially the monsters. As warm-up excercises, I've been doing sketches of the Scooby monsters, and I really like how they've been coming out. So I started fleshing them out a little, adding a little color, and I thought I'd share some of them on my blog. This guy is The Spooky Space Kook, one of my favorites because it's such a offbeat idea for Scooby. So he's supposed to undead alien? If he's from another planet, shouldn't he be roaming graveyards on Mars? I don't know, but I sure had fun drawing him!

Here's a screen cap from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: Season 1, Episode 15 "Spooky Space Kook".

This is the progression from sketch to color:

And a close up of the final. Just a cleaned-up sketch with some quick colore added in Photoshop.
