Fall of Elendil by shadowdark3 Fall of Elendil by shadowdark3
Next Scene:

Previous Scene:


So let's talk about the elephant in the room--Sauron. He's a dragon, and he has no armor. I can defend my choice of character for each role fairly well, but with Sauron, my only explanation is that my pony version looked atrocious. And the lack of armor? I couldn't get it to look good. Trust me when I say that this armorless version looks better than the armored version. :(

You'll also notice I tried something a little different with this one with the panels, and I think from now on, when I need to use panels, I'll stick with traditional, straight-lined boxes.

One (maybe two) more pictures planned for the prologue stuff, and then, what I've been looking forward to for months now (wow, really, has it been months since I started?), the Shire! I'm so excited to draw all those little filly-hobbits! :D

Fun times ahead!

It was in this moment... when all hope had faded... that Isildur, son of the King, took up his father's sword.

Sauron, the Enemy of the free peoples of Middle Earth... was defeated.

wouldn't it have been better with nightmare moon as sauron? cause then you get to use an actual villain as well as a character who's known for wearing armor.

I actually had this idea a little while ago, I had no idea someone else had already started work on it, and done so well, too!
Although, I'm really not too keen on Garble as Sauron. Surely Discord would have been a better choice? And I would have thought with Rarity as Legolas (which I wholely endorse), you'd use Applejack as Gimli, with RD as Boromir (tempted by Sauron/Discord, right?).
Of course, that leaves Aragorn's slot empty... Shining Armor? Might work.
Anyway, I guess I'm a bit late with these suggestions, but there's my 2 cents anyway.
Your work is excellent regardless.

You know, Garble looks a lot like Smaug from the Hobbit.
