So, in the climax of Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost, Velma and Thorn of the Hex Girls kinda get paired up. I think it’s just incidental due to the plot, as Thorn needed to be the one reading from a spell book and Velma was the best fit from the Scooby Gang to be with her for that (’cause you need someone from the gang involved in each part of the scene). However, the result is Velma clinging to Thorn’s arm dramatically and I just thought the two of them looked cute together. A vampy goth and a meek nerd make a good pair, I think, and I decided then I wanted to draw them together eventually. So… here they are!
Ever since I first started drawing Scooby-Doo pics again, people have been asking me about the Hex Girls (Thorn, Dusk and Luna). These three are very fondly remembered from their first appearance in Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost, though they also appear in shows like What’s New Scooby-Doo? and Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated. It’s not hard to see why people like them, a trio of goth rock stars is gonna naturally appeal to a lot of people, plus their songs in the first movie they show up in had much smoother and entrancing animation than most Scooby-Doo media. I decided to pair them up with Daphne and Velma, even though I tend to avoid pics with this many characters (I have trouble staging them, and they take much longer and slow down other projects). I will probably revisit the Hex Girls eventually, though it may be a while from now. I’d kinda like to do something with their Mystery Incorporated designs, plus I’m sorta interested in a Thorn/Velma pic. There’s a scene towards the end of Witch’s Ghost where Thorn is using a spell book while the ghost is going nuts, and Velma’s clinging to her in a very cute/shippable way. For now, though, enjoy this pic.
