Tenebrous Rapture by SurgicalArts Tenebrous Rapture by SurgicalArts
Because the Queen of Changelings is best as a filly (or nymph?)
I always thought she looked like she belonged to some kind of enchanted forest of some sort, so I tried to match it a bit.

Vector Tiem!
Took about 6-7 days. Just kept adding on detail and couldn't stop. I was just going to do simple colors, but I guess not.

Completed in Illustrator CS6. I must say I love the 64-bit version, I was able to actually export it directly.

EDIT: Decided to re-upload at 2× resolution from 3300 × 2550 to 6600 × 5100px

Feed her your love

if you look closely at the holes that are connecting on her front hooves you can see that it is in the shape of a heart.

I am absolutely fascinated what Chrysalis' life story would be. My own head canon is that she really is caring ruler. Power-hungry? Yes, but not at the expense of her Changelings, she attacked Canterlot and send away her Changelings to feed from the love. She seized power from an abusive ruler, (mother? or father?) who couldn't care less about the misery that ordinary Changeling suffered, by promising to make her kingdom prosperous, and once she had the masses with her, she orchestrated a mostly bloodless coup.

"Well, well, well, what have we here? Little... err... bug pony, are you lost?"

"All alone in the big, scary forest. It'll be a shame if something were to happen to you; around here, no one will hear you scream..."

"Wait, hold on a sec, sisters, are we sure we can actually eat that?"


--- The three heads of a Chimera, upon finding young Chrysalis lost in the depths of a forest.

Queen Amaryllis: "GEY. AWAY. FROM MY DAUGHTER!"

Chimera (1): "Oh no! It's the mother of the bug pony!"

Chrysalis: "Not just any mother, she's MY mother - the Changeling Queen!"

Chimera (All): [Thinking] "Oh, bugger..."

= = = 

[Five minutes later and a beating later]

Queen Amaryllis: "And that, my daughter, is why you should not had wandered off when you go out to play! Had you yet realize how important you are to the future of the Changeling Empire?!"

Chrysalis: "I'm sorry, mommy..."

Queen Amaryllis: "You'll be more sorry when your father hears about this! Now, return home!" [Turns to Changeling praetorian guards] "Guards! Escort the Princess back to the palace. I have unfinished business with the chimera..."

[As they flutter away, she turns back to the battered and bound Chimera]

Chimera (1): "Have... have mercy... your highness..."

Chimera (2): "When we find prey, we just eat it! It's in our nature..."

Chimera (3): "It wasn't personal!"

Queen Amaryllis: "Silence, you wretched cretin! I was planning to take you back to my dungeon and torture you to an inch of your life, and die a slow and agonizing death. But... " [Nonchalantly releases the beast] "... I have an even better idea in mind..."

Chimera (3): "You'll... let us go?" [The other two heads face-clawed]

Queen Amaryllis: "No." [Horn starts to glow] "You three thought you could make an easy meal out of my nymph..." [Pings the Chimera with a spell, and when the glow faded, she towers over the Chimera, which is shrunken to beetle size] "Like a frog makes a insect." [Lifts the struggling, terrified critter to her sadistically smirking face] "It'll be more appropriate, then, that you all deserve..." [Licks lips] "to be made one yourself..." [She lifts them up above her head and opens her hungry maws...]

Well, as history shows, Chrysalis survived the encounter to become Queen of the Changelings and then try to conquer Canterlot.

Okay, maybe not fixation, but you definitely seem to like writing about her a lot.

She is a very interesting character.

If it had been fixation/obsession I would be writing nothing but her, and not other stuff like the drabble for this:

I know, I know, but still man. For a character you don't like you almost seem to have a fixation with her.

Yes, emotional vampires raping the brother of the main character and trying to starve her to death by trapping her underground are just adorable.

And yet she still doesn't have shit on the woman who seals her sister on the moon for centuries of torture by isolation.  At least with Chrysalis Twilight and Cadence would have died had they not escaped, Luna never go that mercy, did she?

mammal, dragon, changeling...

there isn't anything to fully support that they can all have the same capacity for friendship, but I'd want to believe that... regardless if they need grass, gems, or love for nourishment...

poor little nymph (that actually makes more sense... if she's more insect than... pony, I think...)

it's not gloomy, it's a swamp! (and it looks a lot better then the common image of the changeling home turf, or as I like to call it the "Changeling Territories")

OK, this is too cute not to fav. I'd love to see them bring back Chrysalis and explore her backstory. Probably not born completely evil, but went through childhood drama that made her into the ruthless dictator she is now.
