Eye of Sombra by Jezendar Eye of Sombra by Jezendar
I wasn't sure what to make of King Sombra when I first saw the season 3 premiere. But he has grown on me quickly, and is probably my favorite of the four major villains now (Discord's not giving up the top slot willingly). Part of that is due to comments I've seen comparing Sombra to Sauron from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Both are sinister, shadowy forces of evil, who work behind the scenes instead of directly confronting the heroes. Which gave me the idea for the above picture; quite simply a King Sombra version of the Eye of Sauron.

For the record, this is my first creation done only with Inkscape, as opposed to being a vector trace of a scanned sketch as I usually do.

Credit goes to :iconhasbroplz: and :iconfyre-flye: for creating MLP:FiM, and to J.R.R. Tolkien for Middle Earth and all of its beloved denizens.

The Crystal Palace in the background is not my own work. It was extracted from Crystal Palace by :icon3luk:.

Evil for the sake of evil is all i can say about that stallion. He so powerful that even in his shadow form, he can overcome The Equestrial Royal member.

I'm surprised that there is only one of these on DA.

I'm not sure offhand exactly how common this connection is in the fandom.

This picture is pure, unmitigated genius.

Although I agree that Discord is a better character than Sombra, he isn't a villain anymore.

So...

Thank you!

And I must admit that I'm still not sure what to make of Discord being reformed.
