Most Likely to Become a Raging She-Demon by harwicks-art Most Likely to Become a Raging She-Demon by harwicks-art
Yes, it's another "Equestria Girls" inspired piece.  Those will low tolerance for non-ponies may wish to avert your eyes...  My apologies.

I actually enjoyed Sunset Shimmer's She-Demon form, myself, and had been wanting to tackle it for a while now but had never gotten around to it.  The impending arrival of yet another movie based on this rather odd spin-off, however, finally gave me the nudge I needed to go ahead.  I remain mildly curious of the whole thing...  The clips seem to be positioning Sunset Shimmer as the focal character of the new film, and perhaps of the I.P. going forward, and I'm all for that.  For one, it would remove the need to yank poor pony Twilight back to that odd world encompassed within a High School, and that's a good thing.  But it also makes for a decent twist to separate the human show from the pony version.  The redeemed villain as the main character would give any further Equestria Girls content its own unique feel, and that can only help it.

Of course, it'd be even better if Sunset would turn into a demon when agitated...  but I guess that flaming hair is hard to style on a doll.

A close-up portrait of this drawing of Sunset is in my scraps gallery for anyone who wants an image focused on her without the whole scene. 

Updated to tweak Sunset's proportions (gave her a bigger head to go with the cartoon look) and some minor clean up.

You know that "She-Demon" form that Sunset Shimmer took on actually bears a strong resemblance to the Mythological Female Demonic Creature known as the *Succubus*, where as it's Male Equivalent is known as the *Incubus*, so I wonder if there were any other Succubi & Incubi in Equestrian Legends of Demons.

Sunset: A demon. I turned into a raging she-demon.
Pinkie: And tried to turn everyone here into teenage zombies for your own personal army. *squee*

Beautiful. ^.^ In its own powerful demonic way. :D Love the colors and her facial expression. :)

At least its better than flash animation, it just looks at a place you, when you transformer My little pony to humans.

Nice work. I wish the flames shed light on parts of the statue to make her seem more integrating with the environment though.
ijustloveit619 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Wow she looks like she is brimming of power and evil intention all consuming 0_0
MisterJones4899 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2014
Holy shit !!

For the first time ever, she looks like something threatening instead of the joke that was in the movie.

I think you did a great job on this, the composition and the dress and the face all settle in nicely.

Let's tally the score here (based around what I do not know about EQG) traveling/exiled to a world not her/his own? Check. Being related towards a main character in some fashion? Check. Gets physically mutated by an ancient arcane artifact to sprout wings and horns? DEFINITELY check!

The results are in: Illidan Stormrage, you are Parodied.

Supposedly Twilight is back for "Rainbow Rocks," but I'd actually be more interested to see the M6 with Sunset Shimmer instead of Twi. It would make an interesting group.
Tyraka628 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Then you should read the Fanfic 'Long Road to Friendship', if that's the case.

This form will technically be returning: a beautiful doll of a form of Sunset Shimmer that may be in the movie has been revealed:…

I have hope that Sunset would return in the sequel because I have high hopes for her playing a important part in it, and shows that he can be a great reform character.

Woah! i'm speechless on how cool this is!!
cynac Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2014
I really like Sunset Shimmers character, but I really hated that movie. I won't say anything more other than this being a fine piece of work. It's better than the spin off version.
GUILLE832 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2014
Alright, let´s see! *Cough* We have Sombra, who was turning into a demon before being... ejem, "reformed" by this adorable and not homicidal at all ponies who I hope are not watching me. Then, Sunset Shimmer who literally was transformed into a freaking demon. And final but not least, Tirek, who was a clear demon. I wonder what kind of evil our favorite ponies will be standing up against...

An excellent idea, having Sunset be in charge of this world between the 30 moons.

That was quite the surprise when I first saw it at the theater.  I guess some people got their bloomers in a bunch because it was "too scary."

I suppose the little boy in the theater with us crying "I don't wanna see this any more!" was a testament to that.  Kids these days...

Woah...!!! This looks so... epic!!! I have no words... :wow: :omg: :omfg: :O
Equestria Girls is a great series of films and I LOVE DEMON SUNSET SHIMMER! Did you know I am having a plushie of her made for me and that I am cosplaying as her when I see Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks? (You can see my cosplay on my page, but it is a work in proccess. You had a great idea on how Sunset can turn into a demon again, but I have several ideas on how the demon may appear in the second film (the first one is from another user, but I added some new info due what happened in a preview clip that appeared after the comment was posted):
*Sunset turns into a demon to scare the Dazzlings. Not only can the Humane 5 get pony ears and tails without magic, but Sunset can turn into a demon without magic!
*Demon Sunset helps Sunset Shimmer solve a problem in the movie.
*Demon Sunset and human Sunset sing or rap (which may or may not become memetic) about the Dazzlings' true motive, embarrassing the Dazzlings.
