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

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.

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...]

= = =

(I'm a really twisted bastard, aren't I?)

DAAAAAAAM! And I thought Mufasa was the top contender for animated Papa Wolf/Mama Bear character!

Well, wasn't expecting to create that kind of impression, but thanks.

Oh yeah, I get what you mean, it's pretty damn horrific, but still, just goes to show what happens when you threaten a changeling's nymph, especially the Queen's...
