No Threat by Mickeymonster No Threat by Mickeymonster
'Cause the night owns darkness itself, YIR. Silly shadows, thinking they had a chance to begin with, ain't that cute~

For any of you who has watched the fan made short "Fall of The Crystal Empire" (which can easily be found on youtube) here's my initial thoughts; (CONTAINS SPOILERS)

First of all, I personally didn't like the style of the armour-combat, it felt out of place to me. ( I'm pretty picky when it comes to designs and fan made works when there's put this much effort into it, the design of the armour and style of combat just didn't really click for me, I wouldn't be able to picture the characters ensue in that style of close combat, admittingly it looks cool, but I would have prefered if it wasn't there. I know little about the process of the production of the short, but if the battle style was referencing something current going on, let me know in the comments. ) I think that made it very distracting to appreciate the storytelling. The animation itself however was very well done, fluent, always moving, no akward long pauses, it was well paced, that along with character expressions and lip syncing. : )
The voices were nice too, but I thought Sombra's tone and dialogue sounded incredibly cliché for some reason. Maybe that's just me. It was the whole "mwuaha, I draw power from your emotions, join the dark side, I understand how you feel unappreciated for what you do for a living, yadda yadda yadda" deal.
I also didn't enjoy how Luna suddenly overpowered Sombra, even having the nerve to lecture him as his superior, degrading his own self worth as nothing but less than an ounce of what her own capabilites were capable of. Luna came off as somewhat arrogant, and the ending was somewhat anticlimatic. ( no big fan of Nightmare Moon ^^; )
But despite all the critique and complains, I didn't hate it, it was still a cool watch. :) Tell me what you thought about it, and if you didn't watch it yet or simply don't find interest, that's cool too.



Anyways, this doodle was actually inspired from a scene in 'Asterix conquers America'. :p

The irony of not being prepared when your mane resembles Scar's mane. :XD:

I absolutely adore their facial expressions, especially Luna's smug face.

Sombra: Wait, Is it the good kind of whooping or the bad kind of whooping?

Luna: 'tis the bad kind!

Sombra: YES!!

Luna: Excuse us?

Sombra:  I uhhh.....I like being hit sometimes, and even though the nightmare morphing thing was a bit scary,  I thought it was pretty hot.

Luna: Oh..........neat....well this as gotten most uncomfortable.

Sombra: Soooo we doin' this or not?

Luna: Meh, why not.

Sombra: WHOOO HOOOO-*POW*<- that's an onomatopoeia

Stare .........An onomatopoeia is the formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named,  like POW, BIFF, BLAM, BOOM etc.
