I am the plague

I need you pure I need you clean
Don't try to enlighten me
Power to misconstrue
What have they done to you

Infants in infantry
Rewrite their history
Uproot their colony
You're ripe for harvesting

Virgin cells to penetrate
Too premature to permeate
They can't elucidate
Never thought i was the enemy

I am the plague

I added lyrics in the description, am I cool yet? The song in question always makes me think of King Sombra, so I drew him. Bam. Song in question in question is "Plague" by Crystal Castles. [link]

Tried speedpainting. Took me an hour and a half? I didn't actually time it, which defeats the purpose, but whatevs. Also my first submission that isnt A4 sized in.... have I ever submitted anything other than A4s? xD

I don't know why, but I just love King Sombra. And Braeburn. This, is just amazing.

Not about your wonderful drawing, but has anyone realized.
Sombra looks like a fucking demented Santa Claus.

wow just wow
He came from nowhere alone wearing vestments of royalty and bore the eyes of a demon, said nary a word and yet where he tread he brings corruption and darkness.

Our queen fell before him and soon we were bound and enslaved. He Ruled alone turning our once Bright and Shining Empire to a Bleak and Blighted land of Fear and Sorrow.

Hope what little of it exist in us, that the other kingdoms has had news of our predicament and would send help but each passing seasons that hope slowly withers and perhaps die like all life in this Vestigial Empire.

Frankly, that's exactly what I envisioned. My headcanon is that only Sombra knows where he came from. One day, the unicorn with a black void for a heart simply appeared and with his magic tore apart the kingdom before they even knew what happened.

Always nice to see someone take their time for a comment! Cheers!
Just wait 'till he meets "The Thing", then we can go bananas XD

Ooh, I like what you did here.

Really nice! I love seeing more monstrous, frightening depictions of him. Something that feels more in line with the sense of dread and despair that his reputation had earned. He seems particularly fearsome here.

Indeed! I really feel like they could have done more with Sombra, but at the same time I realise they simply couldnt in the timespan they had.

But Sombra really is one of the few true "evil" entities in the show. His depiction here is supposed to be as he's taking over the Crystal Kingdom. In a far away tomorrow where I might do the things I want to do, I envision there to be a music video to the song in the description, depicting the process of Sombra taking over the crystal empire and his battle with Luna and Celestia.

Amazing.:) The sharp teeth really make him look horrifying.

Haha, thanks! You'd be amazed just how much more scary horses look with sharp teeth, just because it looks so out of place.
