Umbra by Xaphriel Umbra by Xaphriel
The full body shot of my OC Changeling, Umbra. He needed legs.

[EDIT] - Fixed his head shine and fiddled the eyes some more.

Still have no backstory for him, beyond that he is an intelligence operative of some kind. He will also be appearing as a supporting character in my upcoming NLR fanfic, 'Hunter's Fall', the prologue of which can be found here [link]

I'm still not convinced that his carapace should stick out like that, but I was working from screenshots, and this is what I saw.

His name comes from the darkest part of a shadow. As a changeling, he is sort of a shadow of ponies. Hence, Umbra.

Including the time it took to do his head, this took about 3 hours in Illustrator.

Hasbro own the Changelings and MLP. I suppose I own Umbra

That's why I love Latin, every word in the language sounds like the name of a godess or a war hero.

Well, technically it's the darkest of the three parts of a shadow, but no one here is a physicist or a linguist, so we'll let it slide :P

And they said partially learning a dead language would never pay off :P

I thought it was a perfect name for a changeling. An umbra is the darkest part of a shadow, and the changelings are kind of like shadows for the ponies.

I love Latin. It's such a cool and badass language, contrary to popular belief. Hell, without a basic knowledge of Latin, technical English is hopeless.

And Changelings are an awesome subequestrian speices.
