Last month for me has been nothing but bad drama... Didn't devote enough time to this group.
This day, the roundup is devoted to .Tenenbris and scorchedwing
Warning: I'm being particularly investigative/stalky here, so expect rather gratuitous amount of information.
Read this as more of a silhouette, a vignette, of the creators of the sad art, rather than the sad art itself.

This tumblr is the mod tumblr, contents including personal posts, sketches, and random popular Tumblr reposts. Some of the posts offer a sketch of this artist.This
post:"...i figured my particular style is more appealing for sub-groups in this community and the people who appreciate it are not as connected as people who just want to see pretty pictures."
"sub-groups in this community", well said.This
post is a rather illuminating look into their approach to art:"While i don’t draw anything for attention anymore, that was a promise to myself when i changed my name, i don’t draw to explore my own creative abilities. Sure, in some regard i do; but most of the time it’s to get something out of my system.
I use my emotions as a drive to draw, i find anger, pain and sadness to be the ones that give me the “best results”. I take all my bad feelings and turn them into something good."Pinkies Limbo "Welcome to the void. . ."
The protagonist is Pinkamena, or "Limbo Pinkie Pie"
, wondering in a black and white limbo world.Apocalyptic Pinkamena"Harmony has fallen.
Equestria is clinging to a sinking stone."
The protagonist is Pinkamena, living in a post-apocalyptic world.
Also, there was another plotline
that ran for 39 issues before it got abandoned.A study of the etymology of "tenenbris""et lux in tenebris lucet et tenebrae eam non conprehenderunt"
, meaning "The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it". (John 1:5
"Tenebris" is Latin for "darkness" (more precisely
, it is first declension, female gender, plural form, dative/ablative case. In Latin dictionaries, you should look for "tenebrae
", which is its nominative case.), from PIE root
*teme- "dark" (cognates: Sanskrit tamas- "darkness," tamsrah "dark;" Avestan temah "darkness;" Lithuanian tamsa "darkness," tamsus "dark;" Old Church Slavonic tima "darkness;" Old High German dinstar "dark;" Old Irish temel "darkness").
There are many descendents of this word, including tenebrous
(Czech for "darkness") is probably also related, though I can't state for sure (I can't find a Czech etymology dictionary).

As described, this is the mod tumblr of Scorchedwing, and the posts are mostly popular gifs, popular picture sets, music, his art,and his life ("whining, depression"). I listened to a few depressive black metal he suggested, and I like this album with Hordah Blaästhiir
Also, I think I found his photo somewhere in this tumblr.The Tartarus Project"It is a website dedicated to the support, encouragement, and preservation of the dark aspects of the MLP:FiM fandom, such as art, music, fiction, animation, and games; think of it as a grimdark version of EqD."

A tumblr comic about Pinkamena, the twisted mare, with a bad ending (if the spoiler can be trusted).for the love of ponies"the (much better) works of other pony artists, as well as a ton of beautiful images of Pinkamena, Pinkie Pie, and grimdark""This is about ponies.

This is an art collection tumblr, concentrating on sad ponies and Pinkamena, much like this group does.BandCamp profile[Icon image: A lanky, dark grey pegasus with black hair. The cutie mark is a lenticular eye with a pupil of red and yellow star.]

"The tracks here should be considered more as "emotional soundscapes" intended to describe a feeling or mood, rather than as songs in the popular sense.
I feel each album fits a specific pony, with the album as a whole describing the characteristic aspect of its respective pony. "
There are three albums in this BandCamp page.
quiescence: "This is an aural description of a complete mental breakdown, written after I had one myself. It took me two years to go out in public or even smile again.
This album is dedicated to miss Pinkamena Diane Pie, that most beautiful yet horribly misjudged pony. You are not alone.
Further thanks to Lauren Faust; your childhood visions grew up to save lives."
a little break from time: "This album is dedicated to Twilight Sparkle, that most magical of ponies, whom also has some issues dealing with time-related stresses. "
You are so random...: "A light and fun aural approximation of what it might feel like to be in Pinkie Pie's head for a day or two.
This album is (obviously) dedicated to that most random of pink party ponies: Pinkie Pie. Please keep up your assault on the barrier, we need you!"Soundcloud profileScorched Wing

"...random one-off song, WIPs, and other tracks of mine that I discover on old disks and drives."
Scorchedwing is one embodiment of sadness, a very aggressive one. His aggression is evident in this post
Some tumblr posts also refer to his psychosis.
He refers to Pikamena as "miss Pinkamena Diane Pie, that most beautiful yet horribly misjudged pony. You are not alone." He also has a shrine for her, or as he puts it, the Wall of Devotion.
His ponysona (probably his ponysona) is a lanky, dark grey pegasus with black hair. The cutie mark is a lenticular eye with a pupil of red and yellow star.
He is also the founder of
, the best dA groups for devotees of Pinkamena!NOTE
: This post about scorchedwing is uncomfortably long, because he never replies to my requests for inclusion of his art in the group gallery, so I resort to a textual inclusion, and since 1 img = 1000 char, this article ran this long! Treat this post as an ASCII-textual extension of the group gallery.
Also, I uploaded quite a lot of their art to Derpibooru. If it's impossible to add their art to this group's gallery, Getting these artists' art in one big pile in Derpibooru is the next best thing, I presume.
