That's Grogar. Bad ass villain in the My Little Pony world. However, in the real world he lives in fear of all vets everywhere as they have a magic word to make him reverse Tambelon into the Realms of Darkness forever. "Neuter!" Much better than having to ring a bell.
Great pic for this character ! I like of this version but, you have more ideas for pics with Grogar ? becouse I see in many comments of this pic, many people are asking about an illustration of princess Celestia vs Grogar
I see well, I do this question becouse I saw your works, especially these pics and say that your illustration(especially version "bad ass"..it) inspired me a lot and I am working on a fanfic,a remake of Tambelon story arc, basead in the new cartoon show... so, I like of your pics and ideas for this character and I hope, in the future, saw more things with him in your style ^^
thanks a lot well, for this idea, I'm doing some new things, for example the new look for Tambelon city and the Grogar's army, in the case, of course are goats becouse if the royal guard of Celestia are greek like armored pegasus, I imagine the Gragar's soldiers as viking like armored goats
For a moment, I though it might be Chirin from Chirin no Suzu aka "The Ringing Bell", but Chirin's bell was much smaller and his horns faced forward. I see from ~Vraptor140's comment below who this old goat was. Love the unhappy face cutey mark on the pony.
Yes two things Grogar most certainly was were scary and powerful.
I'm not sure whether to be relieved or disappointed that I only discovered the original MLP show and its awesome villains later in life (I was born at the very end of the 80's so a lot that era of cartoons I only caught occasional reruns of growing up. Mostly Transformers) It's likely Grogar would have scared me as a kid as well.
And yes Grogar dueling with Celestia would be epic.
Well they've had some "Villains" but they tend to be more along the lines of obstacles (Manticores and Hydras and Griffons, oh my) than anything truly evil. However the show hasn't had many multi-part episodes and is fairly episodic for the most part of the epic style villains of G1 don't come up much save for the pilot.
Regardless unless someone majorly screws up or there is a big time corporate mandate requiring something stupid then MLP:FiM will never be remotely close to as bad as G3.
Indeed to this day we fans aren't sure how the G1 writers and animators managed to get away with guys like Tirac and Grogar although I think a lot of what was scary about grogar was his presence, attitude and well competence as much as his appearance. So I can buy that he could be used, I think he might have a better shot than Tirac (Centaur-Satan is to this day pretty hard core for small children)
And the great things about FiM's use of fantastic animals is that Hasbro owns Wizards of the Coast, the guys who do Dungeons and Dragons so they have several Monster Manuals worth of mythical beasties that they can use, all ready to go.
