Ah here's a treat...
Anyone remember my MLP OCs, Argent Dawn and Angel Heart? Well, this right here is actually the ORIGINAL concept that I had envisioned for Argent. Believe it or not, this came before the Pony Version. No joke. And now that I think about it... Looking at this now, Argent DOES have a look of a pony-fied Darion Mograin (from WoW: The Ashbringer comic series). It seriously made me lol. Seeing that, I simply decided to copy the armor, just for this sketch.
I also haven't mentioned this in the other Deviation, but Argent originally appeared in a scrapped fiction i made a long time ago, involving the Mane6 going to an alternate universe, where the inhabitants are human-like. This world was in a DnD/WoW-like war and crisis, where Princess Celestia and Luna are vanquished, along with the Wielders of the Elements of Harmony, and the inhabitants split into the Celestial and Lunar Factions, and is at war against their version of Nightmare Moon, or how I originally named the character, Demon Thorn. He appeared again as his current pony form at the end with his sister. Argent was part of the Celestial Faction in this story, as a paladin. And that's pretty much it.
Awkward enough, this scrapped fiction actually was born from an idea about Spike running away from home, but more on that another time.
Speaking of which, I was planning on Rebooting that old fic into something better, and Argent's outfit would get an update/upgrade. I'll see if I could cook something up when I can.
