King Sombra by Huussii King Sombra by Huussii
Continuing with the humanized villains stuff.

I generally suck with poses and character perspectives so I wanted to do something involving a bit more motion... And a human... And metal.

No concious influences for the design of this one really. I mostly based the design on my earlier picture of Sombra.

I swear he looks like something from Dark Souls.

If you think king sombra was a bad villain, your as stupid and close minded as the bronies who made a petition to bring twilights treehouse back

Here's a tip... While I do think Sombra was a good villain, don't call someone stupid if you can't see the difference between words "your" and "you're".

This looks like several depictions of Sauron from the pre-movie pictures I've seen.

He was my favorite villain, even with his short appearance. Probably the most evil villain the show has introduced thus far. He had so much potential, it's a shame the show killed him off.

Ah yes, he is probably now the most evil being in the world where Equestria is, now that Discord is being reformed.

I bet he fights like a horrific mix of Smash Melee Ganondorf and KH:BBS No Heart.

This is nostalgic for me.  It reminds me of a mix between Sauron from the LOTR series, mixed with the Dark King boss from Mystic Quest and A little bit of Ganondorf.  Very regal but vicious at the same time.  His clothing is ironic, seeing as his self proclaimed kingly title--he then wears a traditional robe with the fur and red cape, but at the same time, he's a very bad cookie... a dark chocolate with anchovies. It would be really awesome as a spin off if the makers of MLP made an episode dedicated to Sombra fighting Shining Armor.  Kinda like your classic hero vs dark lord thing. But keep up the great work! :D

I don't know if it was intentional or not, but you made your humanized villains seem so much like Daedric Princes, and your humanized Celestia makes me think of an image of an Aedra.

"One by one, their nightmares came
Some feared loss, and others shame

One by one, the Elements fell
Then nothing but fear, the survivors tell

Over their bodies, cold winds still blow
In a foreign land of frigid snow

United they might have stood, divided they were doomed to fall
Now Sombra, King of Shadows, shall forever rule us all"


Love this humanization, and I still think that King Sombra was the best and most dangerous villain in the whole show, but that's just me.

King Sombra:

 Hatred is a funny thing really.  It is just like love.  You cant create love nor can you create hatred, 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.
