I have been MASSIVELY uninspired to make any new custom ponies due to a lack of new designs to tackle OR having my custom bait being tied up in the mail (Flim and Flam are on the way). And honestly, I love spoilers because for me, it's about actually experiencing what is happening versus rather than just hearing about it. So I decided to give the 8 minute leak a look because I was literally bored waiting for the new season to come out and such.
And so when I finally saw a full body shot of the villain and heard a bit of his backstory I was sincerely inspired to customize a pony into him. Seeing blurry mobile phone footage of him finally got me out of my rut and I was sculpting like mad studying the design and filling in the gaps. Usually I would wait and see how he measures up to an average pony, but I assumed since he was a buff unicorn, I just made him the size of a Shining Armor toy.
The base was a G3 McDonalds Pinkie Pie with the face and body cut up, extended and heavily modified with milliput. I gave him the evil grin since it's the expression I most associate with him so far due to fan art and such.
I believe this is the first King Sombra custom, unless someone else got ahead of me.
I shoved this behind a mature content filter to minimise spoilers. If you can't access it, a direct link is here: [link]
