We still hear his laughter of triumph in our ears...


While I was dissapointed in the design of the character (first thing I thought was some ponification TBH) and how little we got to know of him, AND the fact he barely spoke anything apart from single words, he still had enough of somethingsomething to inspirate me.
But yah, considering the real target audience and the time Sombra had to be introduced in, he sure served his purpose as a constant menacing threat in the distance with his personality alone. He didn't entirely need that oh so deep story, but at least something would've been nice when compared to earlier villains.

Played a little bit more with lighting and colors here than I usually do.

For now I can't come up with a better title, whatevs. =p

King Sombra doesn't seem to get much appreciation, always being compared to Discord or Chrysalis. He's a different kind of villain that I felt served his purpose, and didn't really need to on screen more than he was.

Man, this guy's colours and design are so bad at times. I decided to slightly fix things in a couple of places to make him look at least a little better.

Since the original screencap included him without the trademark purple smoke + green sclera, I decided to make a few separate versions so you can choose which eye fits your needs best.

Thanks to ~Yanoda for preparing the Adobe Illustrator version of the green sclera one. :)

I'm not really sure if this is done but I don't have any time to add to it. Oh well.
Sombra kind of seems like a continuation of that last pic that still continues to get faves for some reason.

Personally, I think Sombra gets a bad rap, I suspect mostly due to what people imagined him to be in the long wait between when he was first hinted at and when Season 3 finally premiered.  He was never meant to be chatty or catty like Discord or Chrysalis.  From his backstory to his smoky present-day showing, it seems pretty clear to me that they were going for a ghost-king kind of character such as the Ringwraiths from "the Lord of the Rings" or Lord Soth from the old "Dragonlance" books.  Hell Sauron himself served as the big bad through something like 12 hours of LotR extended films and was nothing but a hissing eyeball that said stuff like "I seeeeee youuuuuuuu" and then crumbled when the ring he wanted was thrown into a volcano miles away.  I feel like Sombra did alright for a not-fully-ressurected-until-the-last-second smoke monster ghost in only 44 minutes of pony episode.

Still, I get that not everything is going to connect universally, and for a lot of fans he just wasn't their cup of tea.  Still, I do have to wonder if he (or his horn) is ever going to make an appearance again.  As it stands right now, he seems to be the only show villain who was actually killed off in his defeat.

FOR ANYONE WONDERING, THIS PICTURE WAS DRAWN BEFORE THE EPISODE. SOMBRA'S DESIGN IS JUST A GUESS HERE.

That awkward moment when this was supposed to be just a sketch.
And the serious works are rotting in the back of my folder.

In think this is the first time I've completely drawn and colored NMM. I think I need to learn how to use texture brushes, like sparkle and leaves and such.

"One thousand years ago, King Sombra, a unicorn whose heart was black as night, took over the Crystal Empire."

Before he was defeated by the Princesses, King Sombra reigned over the Crystal Empire with cruelty and tyranny. His rule was terrible and absolute. And even in the present day - one thousand years later - the crystal ponies still fear to speak his name.

Here's the colored image of King Sombra: [link]

Wow! Definitely my biggest project to date! This crown is for Fiesta Equestria's king of the fiesta. Guys, to learn more about how to aquire this crown, and become King of Fiesta, just check the registration page of their website: [link]

The Queen of Fiesta Equestria will be wearing the Element of Magic Tiara:

This life sized replica of King Sombra's Crown can be worn on the head comfortably. All hand crafted! The center band, spikes, and bottom pieces are all made from steel. The crest on the top, center of the crown is made of sterling silver and copper sheet. The gemstone in the center of the crest is hematite, set in a bezel setting. Those two slanted pieces of metal on the steel band were crafted from sterling silver sheet. All the pieces of the crown were put together through a combination of tack welding, and low temp soldering. The crest was painted red, and the steel pieces on the bottom of the crown were painted flat black. Afterwards, I applied two coats of matte finish lacquer to prevent the paint from scraping off or chipping away. As you can see from the back side picture, the crown has a strip of soft leather across the front so it can be worn comfortably, and it is also adjustable to fit almost any sized head.

If you have any other questions about the crafting process of this crown, feel free to ask!

In addition, this is the first time I've uploaded pictures that were taken with my new camera. In my opinion, there is an improvement in the picture quality, but do feel free to tell me what you think.

The King Sombra vector was supplied by :icon90sigma: [link] Thank you!

EDIT People are questioning the design of this crown. They believe that the side pieces on the bottom are part of his hair and not his crown. Here's a screenshot to prove otherwise: [link]

The newest villain to grace the MLP world. :) From the season premiere today! AND since I hadn't seen him before the premiere (no spoilers for me, ha ha) I think I was less disappointed than a lot of people. Since he didn't get much screentime. XD Personally, I agree it would have been nicer to see more of him - but they only had so much time to tell the story they wanted to. So I think they did a good job regardless.

Besides. I think that Sombra is evil enough that he doesn't need monologues, he doesn't need songs, he doesn't need us to even see him. He's the boogeyman, the nightmare, the shadow on the wall. HE IS YOUR FEAR. :)

Anyhoo...

For those who don't watch MLP, he's a tyrant king who enslaved an empire - but he was defeated, transformed into a shadowy fog monster, and sealed in ice for a thousand years. Then he returns, obviously. :)

SO I saw this picture in my head and just had to paint it. XD I wanted it to feel like ink, since his soul was so black...plus it's like he's crawling out of the shadows he was transformed into, and starting to regain his old power. :) It was so much fun to paint!

Well it's the summer holidays over here. Means i'm off work and building up to going to BUCK. the Uk brony Convention. And as it ha been really hot here I've made this comic. I really feel for the Guards at Buckingham palace and horse Guards who have to stand around in full kit under the baking sun.

Princess Luna was drawn freehand by me, but the evil Luna design is heavily based on the comic design. (It is not traced.) As such, credit for the design of Evil Luna goes to the producers of the comic: Katie Cook, Andy Price and Heather Breckel.

I quite like Evil Luna's design. She looks imposing without looking silly. I particularly like the bits behind her ears and the way her mane and tail were designed. I've sometimes experimented with new mane/tail designs for Luna, but I have not yet achieved one that I like.

The Princess Luna character and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic are the property of Lauren Faust and/or Hasbro and/or others.

"Well look who we have here! The great Celestia, fallen to our status." Discord jokes as usual.

The other known villains turn to see the brilliant red mare walk shamefully towards them. She saw her sister, Luna, or more accurately Nightmare moon, and looked down. The group fell silent seeing the two regal sisters silent for a moment. The red mare looked up then back down. "Sister... I... I understand now. The jealousy you had... I understand it now. My Sun, my beautiful shining Sun.. why don't they like my Sun?"

"Well, sunburns, blindness, radiation, Solar flares, fires..." Sombra began until Chrysalis kicked him.

"Silence! You are not helping." Chrysalis said.

Nightmare Moon smiled at her sister. "My dear sister, I am glad you understand. You see, I had only wanted the night to be longer, but you stoically rejected it..."

"I just wanted to feed my children..." Chrysalis said.

"I wanted fun!" Discord replied.

"I wanted slaves and pow- AUGH!" Sombra tried to say until he was kicked again.

"Silence!" Chrysalis replied.

"The point is, dear sister, when you look deeper into things, some of us are not so evil." Nightmare Moon replied.

For this scene, I imagined the real Luna disappearing while Nightmare Moon takes over the control over her and Celestia trying to escape the darkness in fear of what her sister has become.

I wanted to work on my expressions and tried to give it more of a paint-like effect and I think it worked quite okay-ish. It just took me awfully long to make, I was sitting on this the whole day long and my back and head hurt now.

The recent clip that showed a bit of Sombra's powers. Not going to spoil for those who want to go in blind. But I bet this villain may become a new favorite for some of you. Kinda of remind me of The Lich from Adventure Time abit. Hope you enjoy and leave comments and feedback when you can. :)
