Sketch Card of the Day- Catra!

Catra Sketch Card by Taylor Lymbery

Today's deviation is Catra!  As I do more of these sketch cards I do learn a little more about the characters in this wonderful universe. And by universe, I do mean both He-Man's world and She-Ra's. Now, Catra is from the She-Ra world and has to be my favorite She-Ra character. She's a little ridiculous in the cartoon always meowing, but I always thought of her being really vicious. I mean, come on, she turns into a panther! As far as the action figures, I have never really gone out of my way to seek out this character. The vintage Catra "action figure" in the She-Ra: Princess of Power toy line is suited up in pink and black with brushable hair. She would definitely stand out from the manly He-man toys. Does the brushable hair make it a doll, or is it still an action figure? I'm not sure I would want a figure with brushable hair yet in my Masters of the Universe collections, but... "IF" I did, I would choose Catra. This last year, Mattel did put out a Masters of the Universe Classics Catra. I would be more inclined to get that version of her. The Classic's version of Catra is suited up in the skimpy red costume from the filmation cartoon and doesn't have brushable hair! I happen to like that collectable action figure a lot. So, while I might not be fighting over getting a vintage "doll" with brushable hair, I can still feel He-Man manly with getting a toy based off of the She-Ra toy line. For some reason, I feel the great need to go brush my hair...You can also see this sketch card here.

Just a quick update: I did go ahead and purchase a table for the Fan Days Convention in October. So I will be there (given that I don't have another mishap).

I'm opening commissions. If you are interested, go to the commissions tab for more info!
Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. 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 Husband and wife, Brynna and Jeff, compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to Marvindogmedia.com  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
