Description: Jinkies, guess who it is? Why it’s Velma Dinkley from the well known cartoon series Scooby Doo. I’m sure everyone is familiar with Velma’s character right? Well, if your not, she is the nerdy looking girl out of the Mystery Inc. gang that solves most of the puzzles from clues that are found scattered around the mystery vicinity. She is some what of a tom boy because she wears a big over sized orange turtle neck sweater, she wears a red skirt that is pleaded which is worn just above the knee, knee high socks that look like she can use them in a survival situation, the most ugliest pair of shoes that you could imagine, big square bold looking glasses, scattered freckles all over her face, and she has a typical 1970s hair do that most guys where wearing back in that time frame, I mean if you look close enough, Velma and Shaggy have almost the same hair style, other then that she is a funny character that is usually the brain of the clan. Two of her trademark lines are “Jinkies” and “My glasses, I can’t see without my glasses”. She is also very fluent in reading Chinese and Japanese books which aids her to solve different types of scientific formulas. Another thing Velma is good at, working with communications equipment. All in all you can safely say that Velma is just one big geek, and no matter what, she will always be labeled as the most intelligent of the group. When watching the Scooby Doo cartoon as a kid I thought the best shows was when she would go searching for clues with Shaggy and Scooby, boy they are a bunch. This tutorial is a load of fun; you will learn an easy way to draw Velma Dinkley from Scooby Doo step by step. The instructions are simple to understand and you will finish your sketch in a matter of minutes. After this the only thing I have to sketch out is the Mystery Machine, then wala the complete collection of the Mystery Inc. gang.
Description: Okay lets start this step by first drawing out the guidelines and circles for Velma's body. Starting at the head, Draw an egg shaped circle, from the that draw a straight line that goes down for the neck. Draw two more larger round circles for the torso and the bottom area where her skirt will go. From the bottom circle draw two straight lines going down for the legs and two tiny circles for the knees. Move back up and lightly sketch out the outer lining for her big sweater, it kinda looks like angel wings. I tell you to lightly sketch because if you make a mistake you can erase the lines easier.
Description: In this step what you will be working on is sketching out Velma's outside body frame to fill in the lines that you drew in step one. This will start to shape the Scooby Doo star in a matter of minutes. Starting at the face, sketch in her crooked smirk and a small line for the nose, and the bottom of the jaw line. Then sketch in the neck part of the sweater and sketch in some wrinkles and creases on the shirt as well. Draw out her two arms, legs, and bottom of the skirt. Now you can sketch in the knee high sock lining and the shape of her shoes.
Description: This part is simple and short because it is basiclly the last step you have to draw anything. What you want to do first is sketch in Velma's tom boy looking hair doo, next comes the glasses and eyeballs, then the drawing of her hand that is arched outward. Draw a curved line to seperate the shirt from the skirt, and draw the pleaded lines that surround the skirt. Finally detail the socks and shoes. After you finish all the steps, you can go ahead and erase all the guidelines and circles to clean up your sketch.
Description: And here is what your Velma should look like when you are done. Isn't she just stunning? That was fun huh, all that you have to do is color her in with pencil, crayon, marker, colored pencils, or just use Photoshop CS and you will be on your way. I had a lot of fun with you today on how to draw Velma from Scooby Doo.
