Continuing my INKtober redesigns of classic Scooby-Doo villains.
All of these sketches are done with blue Col-Erase pencils with quick inks using a Flair pen, and then quick digital colors in Photoshop.
DAY EIGHT: The Rambling Ghost, from the 1976 episode of The Scooby-Doo Show, "The Ghost That Sacked the Quarterback". I don't know why they gave him a pale pink football helmet, but I just made it an old-timey brown leather helmet. If I actually fleshed this out, I probably would've done a little bit of research of vintage football gear, and definitely would've messed up his teeth a little.
DAY NINE: Sea Demon, from the 1984 episode of The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, "Scoo-Be or Not Scoo-Be?". This one was a bit of a challenge. The original design is pretty terrible, so trying to make sense of it while remaining faithful to the original concept was tricky. The ones I've done so far came together pretty easily, but I struggled a little with this guy. But overall, I feel pretty good about how he turned out.
DAY TEN: Cat-Man, from the 1978 episode from Season 3 of The Scooby-Doo Show, "Make A Beeline Away From That Feline". This one was fun because he's more like an old Marvel Comics' Defenders villain than a Scooby monster. Not sure why he's green though. Maybe he's related to He-Man's Battle Cat?
DAY ELEVEN: Cat Man, from the 1980 episode from Season 2 of Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, "The Old Cat and Mouse Game". I don't remember this one, but that's probably because I didn't pay much attention to the Scrappy-Doo episodes. But I came across him when I was looking up Cat-Man for yesterday's sketch, and I kinda liked him. I think I drew him too friendly-looking though. Ah well.
DAY TWELVE: The Miner Forty-Niner, from the 1969 Season 1 episode of Scooby Doo, Where Are You!, "Mine Your Own Business". No the most interesting character to draw, but I can't possibly draw Scooby villains without including this guy!
DAY THIRTEEN: The Phantom, from the 1978 episode from Season 3 of The Scooby-Doo Show, "The Diabolical Disc Demon". One of my all-time favorite Scooby villains. This guy is obviously very inspired by KISS, and the episode had Micky Dolenz of The Monkees as a character who was a musician friend of the gang. Pretty cool stuff!
DAY FOURTEEN: The Snow Ghost, from the 1970 episode from Season 1 of Scooby Doo, Where Are You!, "That's Snow Ghost". I don't know what he's supposed to be. A yeti from outer-space? I gave him a little more shape and made him a little more ape-like and played up his weirdo eyebrows. Actually, now that I'm looking at him, he kinda looks like a white fuzzy Thanos. Ah well, hope you guys like him anyway. Threw in a quick snowy background this time, since he's an entirely white character.
And that wraps up two weeks! On to week three!
