.Pitch Black. by ssceles .Pitch Black. by ssceles
Formerly General Kozmotis Pitchiner, of course.

I have no idea why I wanted to create a pony form for him. I considered making him an alicorn, but his title of Nightmare King doesn't mean much. Sure, everyone calls him that in the books, but it sounds like a bit of a self-appointed title to me. Self-appointed titles don't count. (For those just tuning in, no, he's not an OC of mine. He's a ponified villain from the Guardians of Childhood book series... or you could refer to the recent movie adaption, Rise of the Guardians.)

His background has to undergo some modifications to allow him to fit into the pony universe. As for his cutie mark? He doesn't have one. He used to, and it may still be there, but it's buried under a thick layer of shadow, just like the rest of his natural coat color. (When he was still normal, what color would his coat be? What would his cutie mark be? I'll leave that up to anyone who wants to design him that way.)

That's right, Pitch used to be a normal unicorn. A great hero, even, from a really really long time ago. He would have been around when Princess Celestial was just a little foal, and another pony had power over the moon. He helped defeat a lot of evil things and lock them away in a prison, but they escaped and possessed him and he hasn't been the same since. Pitch hates all sorts of light... both from the sun and the moon. He gains power from scaring ponies, the younger and more innocent, the better. He controlled a bunch of evil shadow creatures called Fearlings, and it's said he could even corrupt ponies and turn them into more Fearlings! In fact, he wanted nothing more than to kidnap and turn Celestia and Luna when they were defenseless little foals and make them into Fearling Princesses!

He was stopped by another mysterious pony called Night Light and neither he, nor the Fearlings, nor Night Light have been seen since. No one dare talk about him, as if believing he could return would make it so.

[link] is what I've got designed for Night Light so far. But that's sitting on my st.ash and I'm not sure I want to make him his own deviation.


(I think that doesn't warp the book version of Pitch too much. Sounds nice, anyway. <3)

You can reblog this on tumblr from this [link] if you like~

Also, there are two flaws. The back of his eye is transparent which I'm sure is going to look interesting on some pages on tumblr... and I seem to have smudged outside a locked layer around one of his legs. Both are hardly noticeable. And I am too lazy to fix them. =/ Hmmm, his ears also seem a little long and the nightmare sand texture would look 100% cooler if I had done it by hand instead of with a crayon brush.

This is very good. A lot of other Pitch ponies end up looking all adorable instead of evil.

I was just wondering if you would mind if I made a few plushies based on this design? I love how it looks and I'd LOVE to put it in 3d!

I have little ability to draw but I think his normal form would be light-gray with soft fading spots of gold and his mark would be some sort of shield.

I'm sitting here laughing because I got hate for it on tumblr. "You people" can't leave anything unponified! The person was complaining.

"You people".

It's like... this person clearly has no idea this is the third pony I've ever made and posted anywhere ever whatsoever. The first one was a joke, and the second was because of a magic!anon. This is the first time I've ever taken it seriously. (Largely because at least one of friends do, and I wanted to see what they thought.) I mean, I could be a pony artist if I tried but my gosh, look how easily the hate rolls in. Nope, no thanks~

I'm offended without being offended. *laugh* I'm not a "you people". I'm a very ordinary person who draws very ordinary non-pony things 99.9% of the time.
