Sombra the enslaver by MohawkRex Sombra the enslaver by MohawkRex
Well all things coincidered that was a pretty damn good start to season three. The animation was better then ever (seriously, thats done on flash!) the characterization was some of the best in the whole show, every pony did what they do best, the songs were cute with 'Ballad of the crystal ponies' being so damn catchy and the background music was epic level.

Only problem with most bronies, including myself, being that the new villian King Sombra had NO screen time what so ever, let alone characterization. Thats a shame as MLP has a decent set of villians, Nightmare Moon was fairly simple overall but got better as Luna got more development, Discord owned every scene he was in and Chrysalis kept you guessing right up to the end. Still, given the amount of forshadowing in this ep via Celestia (whats in the book?) hopefully we'll see a return from Sombra with abit more back story to help flesh him out. It shouldn't be to hard, he's basically Sauron/Arthas!

Anyways, the pic was fun. I wanted to go for a old school tyrant look so changed him up abit, hope you all get a kick out of it. Now back to requests.

Sombra works excellent as a villain when he's off screen:
Being remembered by the Crystal ponies (or NOT being remembered)
His sole return causing unspoken fear and horror.
A door that makes you see your worse fear.
Traps, doom devices, dark crystals capturing you.
A gigantic black fog of doom destroying the barrier of an Alicorn Princess and starting to consume the empire.
Yes, being an ominous presence Sombra works perfect as a villain, when he's on screen: That's his weak point.

Uh.

Sombra's armor remind me of Arthas Menethil, and his banners look like Stannis Baratheon's. Such a combination is implausible and amazing in equal amounts.

I did base his armour on Arthas.
