Marvin The Robot by Retoucher07030 Marvin The Robot by Retoucher07030
Marvin the robot from Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. All done in PS3.

I loved Marvin, he's pretty much me in robot form!
Well, me in robot form on a bad day. He's fun to do, if I was still in school I'd have him drawn on all my notebooks, lol!

I hope you don't mind... But I was using your image as a reference for a 3D model I'm working on. I would be happy to share the result with you if you like. :)

What I thought was that his head looks kinda unnatural on this natural body... Maybe it's wrong shading or just my imagination. Still love it anyway :D

It may just be that I added a tiny bit more shading to the head to define the shape. Without it, his head just kind of gets lost against the background.

Well, it's not really a painting. It's more like airbrushing I guess. I create everything on separate layers with masks. Then I blur and blend everything together. Same technique I used for the Speed Racer car in my gallery. I started trying to do vector art and realized I could recreate pretty much anything using that technique, given enough time, LOL!

There's a video in my gallery that shows how the Speed Racer car was built. So same thing for Marvin.

Thanks. I was chatting with a fellow DA last night and decided that after I do my series I may turn it into a fun contest. It would be a riot to see what people do to Marvin!

Oh thanks. It was more complicated than I thought it would be when I started it, lol! Lots of layers for the shadow blends and then fixing any gaps in the masks. But it was fun!

pausing only momentarily to reconstruct the entire infrastructue of integral mathematics in his head he went about his humble task, never asking for reward recognition or even a moments ease from the terrible pain in all the diodes down his left side

Yes, very strange movie. I read the book years and years ago. I remember it was strange, can't remember if it was as weird as the movie. But Marvin stole the show!

Hello, can u give me a little tip about the pasties?
I'm not a subscriber, but I've been trying to post a pastie with my own artwork but got nothing...
Can u please teach me?

Hi there,

What do you mean by pastie? A banner or stamp? I know you can add icons and banners in your account preferences. I'm still learning the DA web-site myself, lol!

I mean the banner that shows some deviations on another website, I Saw when u put it on some forum... dont remember the name, Did u Know?

Oh, OK. Well the only thing I know how to do is post a link to my pages. You may have seen that on the Marvin Lovers page.

So all you do is open the page you want to link to in a new window. Then copy the link (Control + C on a PC, Command + C on a Mac) from the address window on your browser. Then go the page you'd like to post the link to. Write a new comment in the Deviant Thoughts window (at the bottom of the profile page), then just paste the link (Control + V - PC, Command + V - Mac) inside the message. When you paste it, you'll see the full link name but after you send the message, it will just show as "[link]"

If you want to post an actual image on another member's page I think you have to ask to member to post it for you. I'll have to read up on stamps and how they work, as I said I'm also learning the DA site. Hope this helps!
