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.

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.

Think of it as an opportunity, Discord may be reformed and is now a good guy.
However, that doesn't mean his personality has changed. He may be friends with Fluttershy, but he is still the prankster we know and love.

And besides...

Since he is no longer trapped in stone, we get to see him a lot more.

EYE SEE YOU!

Once we got the Crystal Heart, except it's the opposite where we deliver it to the bottom and defeat Sombra. Or maybe like the war at the beginning of the 1st movie.

Or here's another twist, the alicorn amulet which grant Sombra his powers. Yeap, and Trixie became our amulet bearer no matter how it corrupts her.

Ah. I figured that you had already seen this because you gave me a llama just a few minutes after I posted it. But I'm guessing the llama was for faving you Crystal Palace picture in the first place.
And thank you for the compliment!

I bet the Season 3 premiere would be 20 percent cooler if this happened instead.
