Painting of the Day- Thunder in the Mystic Mountains!

Thunder in the Mystic Mountains by Taylor Lymbery
As I finished up my last painting I took a little time out to get another painting done. I've found that I really enjoy illustrative painting. Painting feels a little more natural than some of the other art mediums that I do. For this piece, I decided to go with Thunder Punch He-Man as the big hero of this scene. The reason why I did this is that I recently picked up a Vintage Thunder Punch He-Man from a local vintage toy store called DFW Vintage Toys. Thunder Punch He-Man pops ring caps when you twist his body and let him swing out a mighty punch. I always wanted one of these He-men when I was a kid. I never got one, but the fascination was always there. Since I got Thunder Punch He-Man, I have had a hard time putting this toy down. I bought a big pack of ring caps to pop in his back pack while I am at stop lights on my way to work. It keeps me entertained while I am on the road. I'm amazed that this toy is still working for being 28 years old now and it's in great shape. I also decided to add one of my favorite toy vehicles, the Roton. I did a review on one not to long ago. If you read that posting, then you know my love for this Masters of the Universe toy. This will probably be the last painting to post for a while. My commissions have stacked up and I need to get them finished. This piece is painted in acrylics on a 13" X 24" 60lb polar matte paper. You can also see this piece in my deviantart gallery here. I hope you enjoy the piece. Now I've got some comics and commissions to finish. 

I purchased a table for the Dallas Comic Con in May. I look forward to seeing all of the familiar faces and hopefully some new people stopping by to chat with us. 

I have posted some new shirt designs in my Cafepress store. Head over to my Cafepress store and get a shirt or a couple! 

I have all Xenex the Bug Man comic books available for print on demand. You can see that listing here on my store's tab for comic books. 

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

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! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
