Here's two firsts for me! First time drawing Shining Armour and King Sombra.

I really wanted to see more of Sombra in the premiere :( And he didn't really seem as threatening to me. So anyways, this one's for you Sombry.

I'm surprised, this was made in less than a day. I would say this was made more or less than 5 hours.

This might be the first time I've felt mixed opinions on a piece I made. I feel proud, but I also feel it's...incomplete. I dunno.

Anyways, hope you enjoy!

MLP:FiM belongs to Hasbro and was created by Lauren Faust :iconfyre-flye:

Awesome job here. All the detail put int Shining Armor and Sombra catch the idea.

Vision- Will someone explain to me exactly WHAT THE F**K Vision means precisely so I can give a good idea on reviews?
Still I'll give ya a five.

Originality- I'm sure someone somewhere has done something like this where these two prepare for battle but until I see it I'll say this is original.

Technique- I love all the detail in this. Especially with Sombra really giving him that demonic monstrous look.

Impact- I couldn't say that this didn't deserve to enter my faves. So yeah enough said it's awesome.

Keep it up!!!

The picture reminds me of the last part of the video game "Gears of War" when Marcus Fenix faced RAAM ​​.

Shining Armor: Perish, monster! You don't belong in this world!

King Sombra: It was not by my hooves that I am once again among mortals! I was called here by shadows who wish to make ponies give ME tribute!

Shining Armor: Tribute?! You steal innocent ponies and make them your slaves!

King Sombra: Perhaps the same can be said of all royalties!

Shining Armor: Your words are as empty as your soul! Our kind does NOT need a ruler such as you!

King Sombra: WHAT IS A MARE?! A miserable little pile of empty friendships! But enough talk! HAVE AT YOU!

Yeah, Shining Armor clearly wasn't thinking there.

More of a battle of wills than might. And to go off topic am I the only one who thinks King Sombra resembles Makuta? Doesn't help that Shining armor is voiced by the same guy as Jaller.
