Tyranny by Whitestar1802 Tyranny by Whitestar1802
A portrait of the mystery character seen here: [link] Everyone says he looks weird, but I know Hub's just making it look like that. It's a conspiracy. But never fear, I took the liberty of drawing him in all his true, evil villain, ovary exploding badassery.

For now, I'm going to call him Tyranny. :>

So...I gave up on that Lightning painting. ^^; But, I made up for it with pony! :la: I tried to incoorperate Chinese Watercolor patterns with my usual Baroque slash Rococo painting style. It's still experimental, so I'm open to critique on the new style. ^^

Anyway, enjoy. ^^

EDIT:

<spoilers>

[link]

So apparently this guy's name is "King Sombra" according to Meghan McCarthy....

And we have more Discord....

And confirmed more Luna/Celestia backstory....

No words.

:love:

if you think about it, the other villians werent really serious
but king sombra, was menacing, and totally pure evil, i think in any video game he wouldve made an excellent villian, even better than bowser possibly

Well played, hasbro, well played. I never expected you to abuse such a great idea of a villain =( thats just uncool. no its sad, just sad No, I disagree! he does have a great backgroundstory (well i hope he has) and you should feel ashamed to let him get banished again without let him saying something important. Great jobWhitestar youre a genius, this is by far the best Sombra portrait i've ever seen on dA though its also the only one so far Roll Eyes So what i was going to say is: THIS PICTURE IS AWSOME i even turned my monitor 90 around to use it Crazy

Even though I agree that King Sombra didn't get enough screen time, he's a cool villain!

I'm sure he'll make another appearance later in season 3.

I must admit, the more I look at this guy....I don't know the more I'm starting to like him. I know he wasnt fleshed out with lines and charisma, but is that really what they were going for. I depict Sombra as your fear. He's a looming evil shadow watching over you spreading fear to your heart. And plus note this is actually the first villain that wasn't cocky. Do you think if Discord did something like this he would probably be sitting on a couch waiting for the shield to weaken. Sombra even when he was sliced he used that to infect the city inside the shield while he used his spells and magic to keep Twilight away from the Crystal Heart. This villain wasn't cocky and I feel people are judging way too hard on him. Yes I do know premiere villains are supposed to be better than the last one, but I don't think they wanted to do the same thing with the villain. Discord and Chrysalis were over the top and charisma villains while Sombra was intimidation and actually Pure Evil. I feel people need to watch the episode one more time and look at Sombra again and this time think of him as another villain line, not in the same line Discord and Chrysalis fall under.

Hmm.......yeah...I think you're right. :) Though...some dialogue would have been nice...Great, now I'm torn between Sephiroth-esque Sombra and your version. :lol:

...okay, kinda cheated on that quote, but yeah. Give it time, I'm sure Sombra will get better with fanfics and art. And I believe he'll return in future episodes, so...*fingers crossed*

This guy is arguably THE most poorly used character ever, and in a show like MLP:FIM that may not mean much but for me it does. Here I was thinking up all sorts of possible awesome roles for him , leader of an army of crystal golems set to raise Equestria to the ground, a possible relationship with one of the princesses most likely Luna , father of Skyla or corrupter of the elements. I watched this episode only for him, I ignored the songs and childish things and waited for my piece of Sombra, and I get 2 minutes screen time and 15 spoken words. You people say he is like Sauron, I remember Sauron as a towering mountain of death dealing awesomeness not as an eye that floats above a tower and whispers stuff in your ear, he was good at that but never trully awesome ( I have never read the books, just watched the movies). Discord is still the character with the most developed personality, and that's saying much. Sombra was a painful dissapointment, but maybe I had too high expectations, maybe that's why A Canterlot Wedding surprised me, I wasn't expecting and epic clash but an entire episode filled with gut wrenching songs and dances. The only thing good about this guy was his voice and his return. Yes, return. When he is so disgustingly and anti-climatically blown to bits we can see his horn, the only thing left of him, flying away. And only the tip was needed to break down the shield, imagine what the whole thing would do. You can say as many thing as you want about my views, you may call me an egotistical, malevolant, cheeky, up-stuck SOB. You may call me the Killer of Santa and the Ravager of the Easter Bunny, I don't care. I need my spicy badassness to balance the sugar coated girly stuff or I'm gonna die of mental breakdown diabetes.

I think so. ^^ I mean, it's the same writers who gave us NMM, Chrysalis, and Discord. I have no doubt Sombra will be the next epic villain of the ponyverse. :D

Powerful one too. Unlike Chrysalis who needed an army to take over, this guy took over an empire apparently all by himself. I'd say he's probably up there with Discord as one of the most powerful villains thus far.

I can't help wonder "what the hell" is he supposed to be: a pony, or a confirmed/unconfirmed mythical creature. Look at his horn, unicorns and alicorns don't have curved horns, and obviously there's something 'demonic' his face looks.
