Shaggy as Presto

It's Lawndale High background student Shaggy from Daria as Presto from the Dungeons & Dragons animated series!
This image is done in the spirit of the Daria end credit sequence.

Shaggy is an ever-preset yet ever-silent background student. He is in many of Daria and Jane's classes, and has been seen to be a part of the yearbook staff. He has no official name, but is often referred by fans as "Shaggy" due to a resemblance to the Scooby-Doo character.

Presto is part of the six person (and one unicorn) ensemble main cast from the "Dungeons & Dragons" animated series from the 1980s. They had one character for each main class, and Presto was the magician. However, being a regular kid suddenly transported to a world of sword and sorcery, he did not know how to properly wield his magic. He honestly tries to help out with his magic, but is worried of what the results might be.

I thought of a Shaggy/Presto crossover mostly because the both wear glasses and green.

This one was a bit of a problem with the posing. I had no reference for what I wanted to do, so things are more than a little wonky in places. I was going for a knock-kneed coward pose, so I hope that came across. Went extra dramatic with the magic effects and lighting to distract from how weird the body is. He looks like himself, though.

The D&D cartoon from 1983 was my Saturday morning jam, my dudes.

I know the cartoon but I've never seen an episode. Nice work as always.
