Fullview, please. This is one of those WIPS that I said would probably never be uploaded. I'm still not entirely happy with it, especially the cape, but I don't know how to fix it so I'm hoping someone here will have suggestions. I think the armor turned out fairly well considering that it's my first time doing it, but again, I think it could be improved on. Anyways, this is based off the MLP: FiM villain King Sombra, who ruled over the Crystal Empire until he was overthrown. I thought it might be kinda fun to attempt making him in a semi-realistic style, although I had pictured it a bit differently. Hope you all enjoy!

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.
This picture started out as just an excuse to practice some lighting ideas between commissions and grew wildly out of control! Before I knew it, I was doing two pictures simultaneously. This picture gave me the chance to try out lighting a scene with multiple sources of light, as well as experiment with a new method of depicting magic use. I really quite like the idea of magical sparks cascading down from the horn - I think that's something I'll be using again in the future

Day ten of the EqD ATG - draw a pony with a story to tell. Who better to draw than everyone's favorite homicidal egghead-turned-shell-of-herself bounty hunter Twintel? Schemering Sintel www.fimfiction.net/story/59880… - good story, check it out! I apologize for missing the last two days of the ATG. School and such, you know?
EDIT: Fixed the eye size -after a little sleep I realized those suckers were way too big!
"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.
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.

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.
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!
In honor of the upcoming original animated MLP short, "Children Of The Night", created by *Anima-dos and ~Lionheartcartoon, I decided to make a huge painting of Princess Luna and a few of the foals that she invites to travel with her through Equestria's night sky.
This piece took a bit of time to make, especially with the foals (some of the children's color schemes didn't exactly agree with the colors of the scene). I took the liberty and redesigned Luna's regalia to fit more with the fact the animation takes place AFTER Discord and BEFORE Luna's banishment, and I thought it looked pretty neat.
Can't pick a favourite? Have too many of my .pngs to upload into your blog? Have all ten in this convenient compilation as thanks for you guys appreciating the EQGxPony series. (Nothing worthy of note. Just all the vectors in one place)
I've already finished this pic a couple of days ago but I didn't posted it for some personal reasons. Yay! My dream came truth, I created this battle in my mind since like a year and now at least there's an image of it and it is exactly as I imagined it! For some reason I always imagined that the battle theme for this one should be "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin, I think it is the perfect one.
