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.

Um, hi, I was wondering if maybe I could perhaps use this picture as a cover image for a short story?

I'm, uh, not too terribly good at writing fics, but I'm told I write some decent scenes, and this image is pretty much exactly how I portrayed him. If you aren't cool with it, I understand.

As based on the Hobbit movie, yes, Sombra can be cold like Arthas. But when he can transform into a dark mist, that will be the best job as The Necromancer, or more commonly referred as Sauron.
