Redesigns of Tirek

Recommended Posts

1st of all, sorry if this is shouldn't be in Show Discussion, which I suspect it shouldn't.

 

As we all know, in the S4 finale an evil villain from the very first MLP generation returned, Tirek, the Master of Midnight Castle.

 

In this topic I'm going to post a big amount of amazing fanart I've found that was before and after the S4 finale, about this villain. Most of them are impressive and very unique.

 

Which will be your favourite?

The original, Lord of Darkness himself.

The revamped version, much more muscular and more animal-looking than his ancestor.

One if not the first redesign of the characters done by the artist peachiekeenie.

Made by Andre_Ma. This one has more goat-like horns.

Freakiest one so far. That face is just creepy, and that muscular body and those deformed horns, this one looks like a true devil. Made by Solomen.

This one is made to be a more humanistic good Tirek. I don't like it. Made by Haretrinity.

This one reminds me of old Genndy Tartakovsky and Craig McCracken cartoons, which were mostly gold. However, he looks very weird and way too much of a good guy. Made by Atomic Kitten.

Even though Tirek here looks pretty bad-ass, the artist decided to make him a bull. What the crap. Made by Cheshiremoon7

Oh my holy jesus, he looks wonderful. Like an aztec mythological creature. He reminds me of Aku, from Samurai Jack a lot, though... That horse body is WAY too small.

Made by: AWildDrawfagAppears <--- Check him out!

Here he looks human, but very devious. I don't really like this design. He is way too normal for someone who represents the Devil.

Made by: Shellnekoconeko

This one looks very menacing, but he looks too much of a brute, at least for me. Made by: gojira007.

Tirek appears in Leon_Z's comic "MLP: Pony Wars", where he fights princess Celestia. His design as a shadow-ish creature is not that original, but he looks very threatening.

A G4 redesign of Tirek and Megan by Ghost-Peacock. Tirek looks very weird. I don't understand why here Megan is a donkey...

Most bad-ass Tirek redesign I've seen so far. He looks like a Balrog, what's not to love about him here? Made By: Cyrilunicorn

 

So, that's all I've got.

 

Which one is your favourite? Do you think Tirek would be more bad-ass in any of this redesigns? Do you know any of the previous artists?

 

Did you like Tirek, G1/G4?

Even if I am more of a G1 fan I agree, I loved G4 redesign. I just wish they didn't put him a monkey face and cow ears. That was my only complain, the rest was perfect, even those yellow-black eyes, which are really overused in all media.

 

G1's was ment to be menacing, G4's was ment to be A BOSS.

I felt like they incorporated the menacing feel better in g4 while he was starting to absorb magic. although tirek is the only g1 villain I can stand so I cant really critisize him, unlike people like catrina which I hate, Grogar which I am meh about, ect.

 

On a sidenote, I just read all of pony wars, FANTASTIC READ.

Balrog Triek and goat horned Tirek are pretty cool.

 

but I like this re-imagining the best:
