MLP - King Sombra by Huussii MLP - 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

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.
