Hi gang! Today, get a clue from Scooby-Doo! What? Let me illuminate...

  We all know and love the classic mystery cartoon Scooby-Doo. The cartoon's backgrounds are very simple and sometimes continuously repeated throughout the show. Now, the backgrounds can very detailed, but... the point is that most people miss these pieces of artistry. Have you every just sat back and thought about the amount of art there is in a cartoon. I doubt it. Though, it is not the typical art we do ladies and gentlemen it is a type of art, hand-drawn animation. So relax and discover the art.

Like Wow!  These backgrounds created eerie settings, but depicted proper shading and emphasis on shadow. Hope you enjoyed!
