How is this for something different!! So I've been playing around with changeling armor designs, but could never settle on something. I wanted to make something that was similar to the armor you see in the show, but it still give it that changeling feel to it. Either way, I like how it turned out.

I recently discovered an artist, :icondormin-kanna:, who's art I've completely fell in love with! Their poses are all so fluid and their magic special effects are spot on! I just love everything they do and I wanted to try my hand at cool glowy special effects too!

Now to the Character! This isn't Imago believe it or not. Imago never wears armor like that, the blue armor is reserved for higher ranking officers in Chrysalis's army, usually captains or something along of the line. This is Vespa, my battle-mage changeling. She is a much older changeling, having been apart of many of her queen's battles and conquers. She is powerful and ruthless, taking love forcefully from her victims and using it to power her enormous spells, usually obliterating her enemies in a single hit. If she misses some how, Vespa is pretty handy with an ax as well. She's a deady changeling to face with.

Vespa's ax was made by the talented :iconjustthebrony:!!

I actually really like this design. To me I always envisioned Changelings wearing armor that was a mix of practical design, and exposure to show the bodies beauty. And this is an armor set that's very good at accomplishing both.
I also REALLY love the magic and lighting you did. I like how it courses through her like she's a conduit, and then unleashes it in a powerful wave. A very pretty glow fits it too, making it almost look like Petrusite.

All in all, I like it a lot!

... though my HEMA senses are crying at that closer to a halberd axe...

I don't normally draw badass stuff, but when I do, it usually doesn't turn out half bad XD

XD Well this looks great...also what you said sounds a bit like a commercial.

'I don't normally draw badass stuff but when I do...'  Insert product here XD
