Shining Armor vs King Sombra by Psyxofthoros Shining Armor vs King Sombra by Psyxofthoros
What will you do, when you find yourself overwhelmed by the forces of evil, that seek to destroy the ones you hold most dear?

Will you cower in fear like so many weaklings that lay broken, beaten, dead along the road?

Or will you hold your ground and stand and fight? Even if the odds are against you and there is no hope for victory, your spirit shall never falter and your resolve will stand strong. For you are the last one that stands between your loved ones and the darkness.

So. Season 3 premiere belongs in the past now. And it left us with mixed feelings. And tons of GAK :icongakplz: GAK!

This image gave me a big "Whoa, that's awesome man!" moment. Even if there were Dark Magic Princessess and Twilights, Chosen One Spikes, Pinkie Pies on stilts, Cadences flying around as WMDs, and general explosions and stuff.

Let's see what fate has in store for us (a.k.a. New Episodes).

Enjoy. Comments highly encouraged.

Well I guess you are right. He did survive getting his plot kicked by Sombra.

You know... I think that Twilight's use of dark magic earned Sombra's attention, and that these events that I'm about to show you were too dark to show on screen... www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrioE_…

I'd love to see what would happen if Twilight went down the path of darkness like Sombra did...

Absolutely lovely work - was gonna isolate the background for a wallpaper, but when I try and open this in Illustrator, it throws an error and then loads up blank like this: [link] - any idea why? I know there's some compat issues with Inkscape for example, but uhh... yeah. :icontwilightawkwardplz:

:iconpsyxofthoros:
Psyxofthoros Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012
Thank you!

Ouch, that looks strange indeed. I'm afraid I have no idea how Illustrator works, and one time, I opened an AI file with Inkscape, and it took forever to open. I can clearly see there is a problem with everything that has been Blurred and Clipped (Sombra, snow, wind, shading for blurs, Shining Armor's eyes/cutie mark and background for clips). I honestly have no idea on how to help you.
And to make matters worse, in a few hours I have to go on a 2 day trip abroad, and I won't be able to help you in the next couple of days. :iconcrylightsparkleplz:

Even if I were to remove the 2 characters, I think it still would look the same in Illustrator.
But if you were to open it in Inkscape, it would work just fine. Assuming you know how to use it, that is.:icontwilightblushplz:

I'll try to think of someway this could work in the meantime, and after Wednesday, I'll inform you with what progress I may have made.
