A little bit of background :D

I tried to make this character resemble a boar. There're reasons for this, although he was humanoid, obviously, before the transformation.

Ooh! Is this the first time the titular villain is actually referred to directly and shown? I was always curious about the Dark Horse but I think the answer I got was "Later." :D

Double headed horse it seems. I am sure whoever sealed him had the best intentions but why do they always choose a pretty scary looking animal? A dark horse might as well run away and trample over anything even if it is a sealed dark god :/

Yes, this the form he had taken :3 Although, you can't see it in this image, he's the seven headed horse from Act 3 that Odysseus talks about. The next page has the full body, but for this one, he's kinda blending together with the other form, so you can't see them all :D

As for the form, his inner evil bleeds out (he is a demi-god, so pretty powerful in his own right.)

As a side note, I feel the scariest enemies, are the ones who don't look evil. The ones who hide their true selves. I mean, if I saw this thing coming at me, I'd know to run. But a beautiful glittering unicorn would grace up to me and probably impale me before I realized it was a wild animal o_O

Maybe >:D Or we'd ride off into the sunset in search of dragons (cause...if unicorns were real, dragons surely would have to be, too, amma right?)

I guess that is why I like when someone smart seals the creature inside a planet or a sun or a start or a completely WHO THE EFF KNOWS WHERE dimension. Statistically less risk of it coming back ever!
But... For the love of god, do not always make a single person its guardian even in those cases like: "Yo, we will pretend you will not get corrupted 500 years later, haha."
Get a freaking battalion of Space Marines there instead!

I know, right? It's a problem when something has to be locked away and can't be destroyed.

How boring would it be to have to guard something for all eternity? That's a concept that needs to be explored *wink wink*

Ah, the true form of the dreaded Dark Horse! He almost looks chinese in origin.

Cool, we finally get to see the Dark Horse. Really cool design he had before his transformation as well. I like the weird unicorn boar man that he is.

Thank you! I tried to come up with a design that mixed the influences with the some original stuff :D
