See that bandwagon over there? ... Yeah... I jumped on it.
I really wish that they had done more with Sombra in the premiere... or at least given him a single moment of total, evil "badass-ery"... but no... he didn't get one... he barely did anything... which makes me sad. He had so much potential and so little screen time.
As far as GAK goes... I got really annoyed by those commercials, frankly... There was at least one during each commercial break... two on some... I'm not surprised that Bronies turned it into a meme... but I never expected the extent of which it would go... Yeesh... and now I suppose MLB is gonna be flooding with it for at least the next week...
I have no idea why I gave him a monocle... just felt like he needed one. Monocles are cool.
The painting is a screenshot of Sombra in his castle from the episode.
Good Moring everyone, last week I showed you NMR, as one of the GalaConticket Artwork. So lets complete the story with the last one. It‘s the only one, it’s the Dust of your all Nighmares. With less text as Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator one. It‘s SOMBRA ^_^
So hope you enjoy this artwork and have a nice Week, your RarieDash
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.

"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.
The King Sombra vector was supplied by [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.
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!
Uh oh, here comes trouble... Here we have the 3 pony girls corrupted by dark magic. First we have Trixie with the Alicorn Amulet from the Magic Duel, then theirs Twilight under King Sombra's spell and then theres dark magic Rarity from Inspiration Manifestation. Imagine they destruction they could do if they teamed up.
This has taken me four days... Each day about 4-6 hours... So... 24 hours. Jesus. This took a long time. Take this, and enjoy it. IF you don't I will come to your home, and tie you to the chair and until you tell me this is amazing. I won't let you blink or look away. It will be your own Weeping Angel. Got that?
On a lighter note, this is maybe one of the most complex and detailed works I've done and finished. I just wanted to do this so badly, because of how amazing it looks. I really really hope you enjoy this. Because I know I do. Story:
So what is the best place to hide a crystal? With others! Sombra found a chamber deep under his castle, filled to the breaking point with crystals that glowed from within.
All the villains I could include! Don't point out all the antagonists I missed, I am aware of them keke Gilda, Sombra, Chrysalis, Discord, Diamond Tiara, Sunset Shimmer, Trixie, and Princess Luna with plushies of all the princesses. These include in their present form, not in the form of their villain. For example Princess Luna is not Nightmare Moon, reformed Sunset Shimmer. et cetera.
The moment that solidified the destiny of one, and the empire of thousands. For within a single solitary second, he bore witness to perfection. But in its rapture, the sight of ultimate splendor stopped shining, and in its rippling wake the world only seemed to descend into featureless irrelevance.
Thus his world coalesced into a tightening frame, his synapses expelling all trivial elements outside it, and lo his whole existence fell into it.
Okay, let's address some reasons why certain villains are not present.
Sunset Shimmer: This poster is for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Friendship is Magic is a toy line, a TV show, and a comic series. All these characters are from one of those three. Sunset Shimmer is not from Friendship is Magic, she is from Equestria Girls. Completely different series.
Iron Will/Flim and Flam: Putting them together because they share the same reason. They are not villainous individuals with malicious intent, they are just super-aggressive businessmen. In fact, to Iron Will's credit, his lectures worked, and did exactly as he advertised. The effect of his Assertiveness Workshops was initially a benefit on Fluttershy. It was Fluttershy who took the lessons too far, and didn't restrain herself. Iron Will, while loud and obnoxious, was never in the wrong and actually proved his worth as one who can build others' self esteem. As for Flim and Flam, they were not so much villains as they were metaphors for the core lesson of the episode; quality stuff takes quality time, and shouldn't be rushed or shortcut.
Diamond Tiarra: She's just a bully, but is not a villain as much as she's just ignorant in her youth. As we see in Family Appreciation Day, her own family is aware of her behavior issues, and is taking steps to improve it.
Prince Blueblood: If brash arrogance and dismal women-skills was villainous, Guantanamo Bay would be fence-to-fence with Redditors.
Anyone Else: Because my line artist didn't draw them. Stop whining; it's really annoying. Jesus Christ, Bronies, calm your khakis.
So, we got...Discord, King Sombra, Queen Chrysalis and her Changelings, The Great and Powerful Trixie, Nightmare Moon, Nightmare Rarity and Angel Bunny.
Have to give *TheRealJoshLyman some credit here, he concocted a most impressive listing of fantastic villains from the My Little Pony universe; perhaps a collection of nice reminder that this isn't the froo-froo tea parties and fashion shows and sing-a-longs of preceding generations of MLP. This stuff's legit. Probably my favorite addition is Nightmare Rarity, as this roster goes beyond the television series and delves into the incredible "has no business being this good" IDW comic series. Gotta give some lovin' to our comic brethren.
Also, as if you guys really need the clarification, Angel Bunny clearly deserves the front and center spot as he truly is the most dastardly of malevolence presented. Oh sure, Discord overturned Celestia and reigned in an age of chaos. Sombra enslaved his own people to satisfy his crystal obsession. Trixie put Ponyville under a dome, Chrysalis broke through a dome, and the Nightmares blocked out the sun.
Over a salad.
Enjoy your supreme position upon the origin of malcontent you horrible, horrible demonspawn.

A friend and myself were discussing how cute the male folk of our human species look in workout clothes and then we looked at male cartoon characters and putting them in track suits, and she said that Sombra might look cute in one. And you know what No regrets. We were right.
He probably gets up at 6 AM every morning and runs a few miles and goes to buy breakfast at the gas station on his way back home at like 7:30 and he gets like a coffee and an apple and goes home and takes a nap *rambles for hours*
“Just as there are physical monsters, can there not be mental or psychic monsters born? The face and body may be perfect, but if a twisted gene or malformed egg can produce physical monsters, may not the same process produce a malformed soul?
Monsters are variations from the accepted normal to a greater or a less degree. As a child may be born without an arm, so one may be born without kindness or the potential of conscience. A man who loses his arms in an accident has a great struggle to adjust himself to the lack, but one born without arms suffers only from people who find him strange. Having never had arms, he cannot miss them. To a monster the norm must seem monstrous, since everyone is normal to himself. To the inner monster it must be even more obscure, since he has no visible thing to compare with others. To a criminal, honesty is foolish. You must not forget that a monster is only a variation, and that to a monster the norm is monstrous.”
- John Steinbeck
Nothing too special.. but this passage was in one of my exams and it reminded me too much of Angel/Reala to just leave alone.
