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).

The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.

  • Remarkably beautiful that after this study, you, too, shifted to an abstract style of expression in your art. Cezanne kind of did that to art, too! After him, things shifted quite radically, didn’t they. ‘Father of Modern Art,’ is it. :)
