STASHED To Avoid Spoils

By the time he shows up in the show this will all probably be all kinds of inaccurate or something. Like the whole other side of his face. I don't know if his other peeper is afflicted by stink eye. Or his tongue color. For some reason I'm really nervous I got the tongue shape/color wrong, so I went for just plain normal tongue for now.

I'm STILL totally open for commissions if you'd like to snag you something like this or even something simpler, just shoot me a note with your idea! PONY COMMISSIONS ARE AWESOME TOO.

I absolutely love love love how you drew Sombra. I love how his gaze seems to be challenging the viewer directly and how it shows a hint of sneakiness and some hidden knowledge. I also love how his mane looks wild yet somehow neat and the purple mist from his eyes really takes the cake.

Bahaha I saw the uncensored version not long ago when I dug through your gallery on FA to re-fav that Sheeva pic and my bunsona's icon. I think I dig this one more though, since you can see the structure of his blocky muzzle better. Both look wicked, however!

Really dig all the details to the..clothes? armour? Have no idea since I don't know the char, but cool shit nonetheless haha. That eye aura is very well done too! And I quite dig the shading below his chin, has kinda a 'gutsy' organ look to it ;P

I have to admit that this is probably the 'real' version of the picture.
There was a picture of this characters head leaked like four or five months before his episode reveal. I liked the design enough to want to draw it and then thought 'it'd be funny if I tried to be the first to draw porn of him'.
And since I only knew what his head looked like... well. He's giving head. GUFFAW!

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.

Chill bro. For someone who has a favorites gallery full of this guy, why are you hating so much?

Sombra was a mighty presence, his presence was INTENSE in fact. I adored how they played the "Sauron" card with him, where he was there throughout torturing the ponies with the mere sound of his name. Forced amnesia? He must have been TERRIBLE!

Given that Celestia had limited information on him, it's understandable he didn't get much backstory as-narrated. They were trying to prevent him from returning, not stop him after he HAD returned. Sombra is probably my favorite villain because the things he did were probably... too dark for a little girl's show to display.

Oh no, I'm not hating this guy. He's my favorite character and in my eyes he's 100 floors above everyone else except Discord,who's right underneath him cutting the floorboards from under Sombra's feet with a saw. My hate is not directed at him, even if his design is a bit over-the-top in a bad way, but at the way he was presented. When I saw that first picture of him I was mindblown."How can someone as evil-looking as this guy turn up in a show like this?"I searched for and gathered every bit of info about him no matter how wacky it was. I had very high expectations from him and I ended up being VERY dissapointed. Everyone that defends his presentation always bring into discussion that he was more about presence and not about dialogue. In terms of presence I have to agree, he is the only villain that has it and even in copious amounts.But you see,they miss a very important point. Sombra is a so called "silent-evil",who isn't very chatty and lets his actions do the talking. His actions are very important as they reveal his personality, which is brutal and grim but also cunning and proud. All of this goes to heck when he starts talking. A "silent-evil"rarely speaks but his words must carry enourmous amounts of depth that turn the protagonist's whole world upside down and inside out. For example everyone's favorite ,Darth Vader, isn't particularly talky, but his few words shatter Luke's pillars of inner integrity. This is absent in Sombra. He simply repeats the word "crystals" and adds a few others for variety but nothing important like a motive, a bit of back-story nothing. His name was another dissapointment as it sounds far too feminine. Originally people thought he was called Somber, but I always imagined him as being constantly inebriated from double-distilled crystal whiskey. When his name was revealed to be Sombra, it came to me that he was going to kill the heroes with devilish display of latin dance. They should have called him Umbra,Malus,Angor,Dolor,Moloch or the likes and dropped the King part because it leaves us with the impression that we are only seeing the avatar of some greater power not just a being of flesh and blood that can be killed by mundane means. Sorry if you consider this a tl:dr and don't even read it.

I wanted desperately for him to be named Mephisto, you have no idea.

Anyway, I guess I can look past the show's display of him and smile in my own headcanon for him. I'm not really mad at the show, I just honestly think that they couldn't show a character that intense, and that he might return for a second round.

Mephisto?Dude,that's full hardcore. We can still hope for a epic name like that since bloody Disney had Chernabog, who is like The Friggin' Devil. As for his return I think it's 85% that he will either be mentioned or appear again. There's too much buzz about it.
