Scooby-Doo, the Great Dane mascot of Mystery Inc., is a beloved character that’s been warming hearts and solving mysteries for decades. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you on how to draw Scooby-Doo, showcasing his unique features and playful demeanor.

Understanding Scooby’s Unique Appearance

  • Color and Markings: Scooby is a brown dog with several distinctive black spots on his upper body. His collar is blue-green.
  • Posture: While Scooby often walks on all fours, he occasionally stands bipedally, showcasing ‘human’ characteristics.
  • Facial Features: Scooby has a black nose and displays a range of expressions, from scared to brave, making his face an essential focus while sketching.
  • Other Characteristics: Unique to Scooby are his opposable thumbs, single pad on each foot.

Drawing Scooby-Doo also opens doors to sketching his friends like Shaggy, Daphne, and Fred, creating a complete Mystery Inc. ensemble.
