Sketch Card of the day- The Faceless One!

Facelees One sketch card by Taylor Lymbery
Today's deviation is The Faceless One! If there is one character that stands out the most as an original creation of the 200X modern Masters of the Universe cartoon series, it's got to be The Faceless one! This guy is really cool. In the cartoon he's the father of Evil Lyn and the keeper of one of the most powerful artifacts in all of Eternia, the Ram's Stone! Back at the end of last year, Mattel made a MOTU Classics version of this character in action figure form. His bio on the package was well thought out stating that this man was once on the Eternian Council of Elders and broke a treaty that gave him a daughter and stripped him of his humanity. He got a really awesome back story! If you want to read his back story on Mattycollector, go here.All in all, he's pretty cool, but not my favorite translation of a 200X character. I think my biggest complaint was the way the shoulder armor/ cape/cowl just sits on him and makes him seem swallowed by his clothes. Don't get me wrong, I like the figurine and wrote a positive review about him, but I feel that one piece could have been done better. 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).
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:

Now, I'm opening commissions for 2.5" X 3.5" sketch cards. They are $10 + shipping and handling which will be $6 in the continental United States of America. I'll have to get a quote for any territories outside of that. I will also open up my 7" X 10.5" colored page line drawings for commissions. Same price as the sketch cards, but I'll have to check on the shipping (due to the difference in size). If you want to see what I mean by colored sheet drawing, go here. If you want a sketch card, send me an e-mail to taylorlymbery@gmail.com. Name your character and we will go from there. I take paypal.

  1. Actually for the true story about Faceless One, people should check out the awesome "Masters of the Universe" comic by MVCreations that was done at the same time the cartoon aired.

    Comic Issue 5 (Volume 3)

    The Classics is doing their own bio-spin on the story.

    1. I need to get a hold of all the issues in what would have been volume three. I have only the first issue. What is the difference in story?

    2. You can read the story yourself in the link I gave. ;)

    3. I completely missed that link! :D That's a great issue! I see the difference now. I kind of like the idea of Keldor being the one to take Evil Lyn through time and not He-ro. Hum... I'm going to have to get all of the volume three MVC issues now.
