Friends, it’s Spooktober! The month of scary and lit pumpkins is here. Traditionally, for me, that means mostly characters from horror movies and scary stories are in line. In fact, I paint other miniatures the rest of the year and push anything thematically appropriate to October or November. Once again, some nightmarish fellows have come together for this year. However, we make the start quite relaxed:
In my childhood, Scooby Doo was an integral part of the Saturday morning program. Get up early, some cereal, blanket, sofa, off you go. I used to watch a lot of Scooby Doo. However, when I look at the intros of the various seasons, it can only have been the first two seasons, the rest I do not know:
Scooby Doo was always good entertainment, but nothing more. I was certainly not a fan. As a solid building block of my childhood and also a general part of pop culture, the troupe had to be in my collection. Luckily, Kev White tasted all five characters and released them via Hasslefree.
Now Scooby and Shaggy make the prelude. I love the characterful poses! The two are immediately recognizable. I’m not used to any problems from Hasslefree, so these minis were also easy to work with. I mean, there was almost nothing to clean on all the fifths. The painting is again very much based on the original. The design is not very complex anyway, the original is from 1969. In any case, it was a lot of fun to breathe life into the two.
