Herald of Shadows by Sorelstrasz Herald of Shadows by Sorelstrasz
This is a followup from

King Sombra, after witnessing the fall of Twilight Sparkle, manipulated her emotions to make her his apprentice. Over the years, Twilight's knowledge of dark magic excelled at an astounding rate. But with such power has a toll on the body. Her hair and tone colors lost their hue, her eyes began to glow of dark magic, her horn glowed red when using magic. The power of shadows was so great within her, she could match her power with the Elements of Harmony. No longer was she Twilight Sparkle. Instead, she was the Herald of Shadows...

Now go, make a fanfic of this :p

(Note: Her wings are actually shadows. It's a spell only a powerful unicorn can use to make her appear as if she was an alicorn.)

I spent the last couple days working on this one. It's a special one to me since I did a lot more than just slapping a pre-made vector onto a picture. I was also working on trying something new with angling.

P.S. Big download file, figured some of you would like that :)

That. Is. Awesome! I would totally read a fanfic of this! Heck, I might WRITE a fanfic of this! First time I saw that episode I actually expected Twilight to go dark, if only for a little bit, since she was so good at using the dark magic already and she'd only seen it done once the day before. It would have been so cool . . .

Yes, that's true. But as WildKnight215 below me also said, Makuta is also the name of an evil race of monsters ( from which also Teridax is also part of ) that can create and control shadows and shadow energy, which sounds almost like what Twilight is capable of know, and in extension, Sombra.

It was an evil race entirely? I only saw the movies that had the Mask of Light up to the Web of Shadows, but didn't know Makuta was a race.

It would be an honor if you would allow me to write a story based on this picture, and using the picture itself as cover-art. Once I am finished with the first chapter, I will immediately send you a link.

I would love to see something like this happen (or like with Nightmare Rarity) in the show, but I don' think they would do it. Thank goodness for the fanbase! :D

PS, love your OC so freaking much.

Well, I started with that base I mentioned and retraced it to a higher resolution. I started redesigning Nightmare Moon's helm and armor with an emphasis on black. With the helm on, I decided I wanted her hair to show, so it comes out from the back and since she's much older, I made her mane and tail longer.

In regards to the background, I started from scratch. I wanted some FOV elements going on, so I drew a curved line like ( and rotated it to match the direction of those clouds. Then you select some colors of a gradient with the lighter ones lower on the horizon and the darker ones by the sun. You don't have to be perfect, but draw those nice and big and follow that ( mark. When it's all done, use the blur tool and blur it by 500x500 pixels. It'll smoothen the colors out to what you see here.

Takes practice, but after a bit it becomes really straight forward :)
