Velma Dinkley by okchickadee Velma Dinkley by okchickadee
Sorry, I've been finishing my undergraduate thesis and taking finals and graduating (three cheers for me!) so have been extremely busy lately. Now, though, now I have all the time in the world... until I'm gainfully employed.

If I've forgotten to do something for someone in the past six months, I apologize heartily and ask that you remind me again.

Anyways, this is the first picture I've finished in a while. I've seen some revampings of the Scooby Gang, but why revamp when you can be cutting-edge retro?

First...Vel is not known to use tobacco, according to Scobbyverse canon. And if she did, they would probably be "light" cigs.

Second...nice change of pace with the glasses.

Third...Vel does have a steel-hard core to her personality, which was never explored in ANY of the Scoobyverse offerings.

Like what you did, my friend.

No, Velma's a non-smoker

Hey,

I'm not sure if you're aware of this yet or not, but there is a blog for Smith College that uses your image for memes ([link]) I am a rising Smith sophomore and I like to screen print shirts, and I wanted to ask you if you were cool with me using the memes with your velma head in them to make shirts for fun. I was just thinking of making a couple for friends, but if they somehow caught on and started to make money I would let you know and give you a cut or something. But Smith is small so I doubt anything really big would come out of it. Anyway, just wanted to get your permission before doing anything!

Thanks and we love your work!

Stephanie

Velma was always my favorite of the Scooby gang. She's just so pretty, smart, and stylish. : ) And you made her look so badass here! Thank you!

Weird because im writing fan comic scripts for scooby doo and it has a "ADULT" tone to it and in the scripts Velma smokes.

Looks like Vel's cheesed off over something. However, I'd lose the Marlboro...traditionalist Scoob fans would cringe at such a portrayal!

All in all--good noir portrayal!

I always liked Velma for her general gawkiness and nerdiness, but she looks pretty cool here. Doesn't look like she would want to talk to me, though.

Noir in color.

Hairstyle, eyes, pose and cigarette suggests a femme fatale inplace of the intrepid nerd girl we all know and love.

Or maybe she's smoking one of Shaggy's 'hokie smokes' .
