King Sombra by Huussii King Sombra by Huussii
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

Someone mirrored this image on that site. You don't have to be tech savvy to know that. The only problem there is that your site doesn't give a source, which would be here.

This one dates back to November 12 of 2012. It has been mirrored to numerous other sites too by now because it apparently got pretty popular.

I know you're a troll but meh, just in case.

This picture looks good!

I, personally, think that King Sombra as a villain works best when he's not on screen: Being an ominous presence, being feared by just being remembered by the crystal ponies, the traps in his castle like that door that shows your biggest fear. That Black could just threatening to cover the Crystal Empire as soon as the magic shield is down... yes, Sombra truly shines when he's not there. He's like Sauron in that regards.

Sombra: Nothing else?....... Well, I guess I cant blame a dog for doing their master's bidding.  You should be grateful, it's not often i find one who I can compare to a dog.  And you should be very grateful that I would grace my hooves across  your dead body .  Most of who I meet I only see them as maggots....lower then dirt....nothing. 

Just know this dog, if you claim to "walk in the light of the princesses", your path will only lead you to nowhere.  You will die alone, all will see your death as just another casualty. No one will remember you as a real person, they will see you as a used up tool. And when you walk the path if the afterlife, that light of the princesses that you oh so ogle over with blind faith....It will be gone....forever

Then again, I don't expect a DOG to comprehend this.  So don't feel to bad that you can't understand what you don't have the intelligence for....

King Sombra:

 Hatred is a funny thing really.  It is just like love.  You cant create love nor can you create hate, you can only influence what is already there.  Just everyone has love, everyone also has hatred... seething, wretched, beautiful hatred.  And as long as everyone has that hatred, no matter how little it is, I need no crown to rule you.

I don't really mind one like that, as it's just one single reproduction. There's no significant or continuous profit made, like prints would do.
