Daddy Don't Forget Your Hat by ancalinar Daddy Don't Forget Your Hat by ancalinar
I promised some a while ago that I'd draw the rest of the Mystery Squad. Years later, I deliver. :b

Anyway, tumblr took offense at my Velma. Apparently I believe overweight people don't deserve happiness? That's not true, guys. I don't want anybody to be happy in my little 'what if' scenarios. ;]

How unhappy you ask?

Daph was always desperately in love with Fred. Too bad, since he gets her up the duff and drops her pregnant arse shortly after, abandoning her for his job as a host for some small-time ghost hunter series.

Heartbroken and nowhere to go, she ends up living with Shaggy and later marries him. I guess they start out as friends and then hormones take over…? Despite being an airhead, her mother's instinct is strong and she wants her son to grow up in sort of a family. Maybe she sees Fred in him, too, and can't let of those feelings go. Shaggy doesn't mind and loves the kid as his own flesh and blood. Now, with a second kid on the way (Shaggy's, this time), the couple ran into financial trouble and is arguing over Daph's spending - she's is a little princess who's never lifted a finger in her life, and Shaggy is sporting a GED, so they're not exactly rolling in cash… I imagine Shaggy is some small time night-guard or a mall cop, nothing real profound. They do love each other, but Daph is a dim bulb when it comes to the concept of 'budgeting'.

This painting fought me, too. I think I need more practice rendering light.

This whole thing makes me sad, but the one things that makes me most sad, is to think Scooby is probably dead :c

So you can't be happy if you are fat, broke or once had feelings for someone else? Oh geez i didn't realize being fat has to be the  same unhappiness as being an alcoholic or financially struggling! Oh and forget that Daph is actually pretty intelligent and shaggy has always been the dim bulb? But i guess having a kid does that to a person right?! This artist is a total mysogynist.

I don't mean to intrude, but having looked at this gallery before I don't think there's much evidence to support your mysogynist claim. Not to mention the fact that Velma's weight in the other picture has nothing to do with her being unhappy (not that the description said she was unhappy anyway...). They also never implied Shaggy was some kind of genius either.

I am surprisingly really into the idea of them together and I had never even thought about it. I'd seen your Velma piece circulating a while ago and thought it was beautifully done- you're so skilled at digital painting. Your lighting is gorgeous.

Thank you! I'm still learning how to paint light, though. 

As for Daphne and Shaggy - I actually wanted the most unexpected pairing, and see if I can work it into the storyline I started. I'm glad you like it!

these are breaking my heart man.

amazing job. you have a knack for putting emotion into these. not enough to fully understand the situation, but a subtle kind. where you look at it and think "oh, thats sad" but when you read the stories, it brings you back to fully realize whats happening. its beautiful, and a rare technique. fantastic work.

Wow this one is PACKED with inner story.
Plus you took the time to explain it anyway.
I can honestly say that everything you said can be picked up out of the peace without being told.

All the best art make you build a head movie.

Thank you! I enjoy coming up with reasons why things are one way or another. I've done it since childhood and it always made a piece that little bit richer for me - and it's very awesome that other people viewing it can get the extra bits out of it as well. :]

That little boy's face makes my heart bleed. Their family isn't perfect, but they seem to be happy. They're working at it. A work in progress, and that's the beauty of it. Daphne's face tickles me. "I semi-understand what you're saying, but this ice-cream/yogurt is really good." Poor Shaggy, he looks so stressed out.

This is the most adorable thing. I absolutely love your Shaggy - he looks so earnest and sweet! Like, you can tell they're having an argument but he really doesn't want to hurt her...

(I want to write fanfic for this and your Velma piece now. I'm nuts.)

And you're welcome! I was pleasantly surprised that you're doing more in the series. Don't let anyone get you down you're a wonderful artist :)
