I love Marvin the Martian.  He’s probably my favorite cartoon character of all time (though Bugs Bunny is a very close contender, and some new 3D characters, such as Rango, are quite fabulous as well).  However, Marvin’s been with me since I was a kid.  I’ve drawn him, made a 3D model of him, made a tiny and very short animated 3D film of him with a spaceship of his (that I also designed and modeled), I’ve dressed as Marvin for Halloween, and now I’ve finally painted him.

I was hoping that if I painted a slightly larger object than the little 1.25″ – 1.5″ characters I painted before our vacation, it would help me loosen up some.  Maybe it did, a little; maybe not as much as I’d like.  I think I need to paint soft things next.  But I am very happy with how Marvin came out.  He does look almost exactly like the little plastic toy I used as a model.

Like all of my “almost-daily paintings,” the painting of Marvin is priced according to the outside dimensions: this piece is 8″ x 8″, so the price is $88.00, shipping included.  Tax is extra if you live in Texas (sorry; it’s the rules).  Marvin is painted on a 1.25″ deep gallery-wrapped canvas, and this time, I’ve painted the sides the same blue as the negative space (or background).

A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.

  • I love the texture, the movement, the colors… love it all. You create a mystery in that eddy, imagining the forces pushing and pulling and twirling. Great job!
