Painting of the Day- Dragon Camp!


Dragons, wizards and fantasy, oh my! What's not to love about a little sword and sorcery? When I started this piece, I wasn't entirely sure that all I wanted to have in the painting would work and fit. Overall I think my mission was accomplished. If you see some similarities to a specific character from pop culture then you are correct. I used a little reference from Orko of the Masters of the Universe for some of the look of my magician. Its mainly the hat that has that Orko vide. Everything else is truly from my head. I'm very happy with the design of the sorcerer. I have always wanted to see a wizard with armor on and this is my first attempt. I have a feeling that I will have to revisit the armored up sorcerer again on day. To give him a bit of magical reference, I used the star of protection on his back and wagon. The crescent moon handles the rest of the magical look tying the staff of the wizard, to his cloak, to his hut wagon in design. I chose the Orko orange hat color to relate him to the dragons and the red as a close relation to his hut and camp. I think the colors really stand out on this piece and I love the wide variety of hues. I will offer this piece, not only for sale but also for print at the upcoming Dallas Comic Con in May 2014. This piece is an acrylic painting on a 11" X 17" piece of poster cardstock. You can see this piece in my deviantart gallery as well here

I have the table purchased for the Dallas Comic Con in May. If you want pre-show pieces for that show, let me know.

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! The shows are great!

Painting of the Day- Robo Force Discovery!


Back when I was a kid, I had this robot that had a suction cup bottom and a "hugging/crushing" feature on it. That Robot was Maxx Steele. For this site, I've talked about three of the Robo Force Robot toys. I reviewed, Maxx Steele, Coptor, and Blazer. In this painting, I've got Maxx Steele and Coptor featured along with the Fortress of Steele based on the Maxx Steele Robo Force toyline by Ideal Toys. As I go and research material on the toys for the Podcast I'm on, Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff, I find all sorts of package and book art from back in the day. I felt inspired to make my own Robo Force painting. Now, I don't think there was ever any Jungle scene in any of the books, but I really wanted to put one in. I thought of it as the world before it went barren in the Maxx Steele book universe. This piece is an acrylic painting on a 13" X 24" piece of polar matte paper. It took a long time painting this piece, and I had a blast working on it. I wouldn't mind making another one day. Maybe I should make an action scene between Blazer and Hun-Dread. We'll see. You can see this piece in my deviantart gallery as well here

Reese, Taylor and Jeff
I apologize for having not done any review from the Sci-Fi Expo yet. I haven't had a lot of time to post here lately. The show was good and I had a good time! I got to visit with a lot of great people, including my favorite cosplayers, fans, and peeps! Thank you all for stopping by and visiting. Thank you Taffetta and Anna for your support! Thank you Reese, and Family for the purchases and thank you Candace and Darth Mall toys for yours as well! While I was there, I was interviewed by Eugene, a puppet reporter from Puppets Rule the World. Below is my interview. 


If you have to ask, Eugene smelt like dryer sheets. :D

Painting of the day- Daryl Fett!

Daryl Fett painting by Taylor Lymbery
The Sci-Fi Expo is this coming weekend and I will be there February 8-9th. I'm offering the "Two Super Cops Walk into a Bar" print as an 11" X 14" exclusive for the Sci-Fi Expo on February 8-9th. Now, this piece here, called, Daryl Fett, is a commission piece for Joel at the Darth Mall vintage toy store. He wanted a mash up of two of his favorite characters; Boba Fett from Star Wars and Daryl from the Walking Dead. Normally I go for pen and ink Illustration with watercolor and marker coloring, but I really wanted something special this time. I decided to set out the acrylics and paint this commission piece. I like the way it turned out. The size of the picture is 11"x 14" and it is acrylic on 60lb polar matte paper. I've had a few people ask me about it as a print, so I'm thinking of making a small run of this piece as a print. If you are wanting a print, let me know, and I'll see if I can get some printed. When You can see this piece in my deviantart gallery as well here

Pin-up of the Day- "Two Super Cops Walk Into a Bar..."!


I will be at the Dallas Comic Con: Sci-Fi Expo, February 8-9th. One very big surprise for me, and I'm sure, many others, is two special guest in their guest lineup. The two guests I'm referring to are Peter Weller(Robocop/Buckaroo Banzai) and Karl Urban(Judge Dredd/Dr. McCoy). These two men are responsible for two of my favorite super cops! In the background, I added several of my favorite characters from their filmography. Can you figure out who they are? If you can, let me know in the comments. There were a few characters that I couldn't add due to running out of room. One in particular was Karl Urban as the warrior from Pathfinder. This piece is made using water color, pen and ink, and art marker. It measures 18" X 24". I'm offering this print as an 11" X 14" exclusive for the Sci-Fi Expo on February 8-9th. The print run will be very small, so If you are wanting a print, let me know, and I'll see if I can get more printed. If you are wanting a pre-Sci-Fi Expo commission, let me know and I'll get it ready for pick up at that show. You can see this piece in my deviantart gallery as well here

Custom Toy of the Day- Tony Breaks Free!


This marks the first Marvel Comics based custom toy to date.  To be honest, I'm really glad that it was Iron Man. This is a commission piece for a good California friend of mine. He wanted a cool custom toy for his son who is a big Iron Man fan. When I first started talking about what design to do, I really wanted to make an Iron Man 2020 toy, but there was a want for a more armory look. I used aspects of the Iron Man 3 suit and the Iron Man 2020 costume and combined them together. I used a Creatology Egg head vinyl blank toy to make this custom. When I painted the toy, used a painting technique where I used my fingertip to rub the paint onto specific areas to make the metallic sheen really pop. After the body was painted, I painted Glow in the Dark application into the eyes and arc reactor on the chest. I decided to make a box for Iron Man to break out of to give the toy a dynamic base than just the basic round base. I think the effect of the box works better than the basic base. If I make another Comic Book custom toy, I might have to explore this type of base again. Now, if anyone wants to commission me for a comic book custom toy, send me a message! I'll have more pictures after the wordage below... as always!  

I will have a table for the Dallas Comic Con: Sci-Fi Expo, February 8-9th. If you are wanting a pre-Sci-Fi Expo commission, let me know and I'll get it ready for pick up at that show.
