The newest villain to grace the MLP world.
From the season premiere today! AND since I hadn't seen him before the premiere (no spoilers for me, ha ha) I think I was less disappointed than a lot of people. Since he didn't get much screentime. XD Personally, I agree it would have been nicer to see more of him - but they only had so much time to tell the story they wanted to. So I think they did a good job regardless.
Besides. I think that Sombra is evil enough that he doesn't need monologues, he doesn't need songs, he doesn't need us to even see him. He's the boogeyman, the nightmare, the shadow on the wall. HE IS YOUR FEAR.
For those who don't watch MLP, he's a tyrant king who enslaved an empire - but he was defeated, transformed into a shadowy fog monster, and sealed in ice for a thousand years. Then he returns, obviously.
SO I saw this picture in my head and just had to paint it. XD I wanted it to feel like ink, since his soul was so black...plus it's like he's crawling out of the shadows he was transformed into, and starting to regain his old power.
It was so much fun to paint!
