King Of Shadows by Killryde King Of Shadows by Killryde
King Sombra doesn't seem to get much appreciation, always being compared to Discord or Chrysalis. He's a different kind of villain that I felt served his purpose, and didn't really need to on screen more than he was.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that thinks Sombra gets too little appreciation. As much as I want to know more about Sombra, I'd be fine if they left his story alone. Who knows, maybe we'll get some more from him in the season 4 premiere.
Anyway, great drawing!

I really like what you did in this pic, King Sombra's posture looks very aggressive showing how of a menacing character he is. And I really love the textures you put on his armor, it show a great deal of elegance showing his position as king. Fantastic Job! :clap:

Hmmm.... CRRYYYSTAAALZZz.....

Fave villian, (Besides old Discord) due to the fact that his mystery made him menacing. Not to mention he looked pure evil.

...Then Spike and Cadence pwnzed him. XD

Sombra: "Fillies, gentlecolts, foals..."
"You ponies call me a heartless tyrant, I consider myself a teacher..."
"Lesson No. 1..."
"Heroes... there is NO. SUCH. THING."

Twilight was in dire straits. King Sombra had returned, conquering the Crystal Empire. She had no idea where her BBBFF or sister-in-law were, or her friends. And now, the King of Shadows had cornered her. Desperately, she drew forth that dark power from the back of her mind, and felt the burning purple smoke leak from her tear glands. In an instant, Sombra was blocked off by a ring of black crystals.
Twilight breathed a sigh of relief. A brief respite.
All too brief, the universe seemed to think, as black smoke oozed around the ring of black crystals, coalescing before Twilight Sparkle into the Crystal King Sombra. The crystals grew up towards the ceiling, shadowy smoke spreading under Twilight's hooves, rooting her to the spot.
"Oh, you think darkness is your ally, but you merely adopted the dark," the dark king snarled. "I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a stallion. By then, it was nothing to me but blinding! The shadows betray you, because they belong to me!"
