Change from the Chrysalis

Whelp, not sure where Chrysalis came from, I was making some other characters and suddenly things changed.
Made the main focus a bit different this time around, and playing around with some alternative looks for some parts which was interesting to do.

Her colours are slightly tricky, but maybe that was also because my previous one was Celestia who had quite the opposite colours going on haha. So I tried to not make Chrysalis too dark, but also not too bright...
Then I didn't know what to do with the hair either lol. It was quite an adventure.

It's fun being able to do the same, but still have plenty of differences, whether it's texture, colour, details, design, etc.

PS: All progress was made on a single layer

Approx Time: 7 hours
Photoshop CC

To put it simply, this piece is absolutely beautiful. The pose is regal, and perfect. I interpret it as a royal portrait. The hair and overall design of the face and neck are amazing. I love the way you drew the exoskeleton, and ear with the detail that you did. Not to mention the beautiful eyes! The simplistic but dark backround allows the piece to draw full attention to her, and suits her perfectly. With The Changeling Queen usually being drawn in a negative, or dark fashion, it's great to see an actual portrait of her displaying what she truly is. A queen.

First of all i really LOVE this artwork,
you did such a good job at shading and such, and i love how the background is,
i love the way you made her hair, and how it shines!
and i like how you made her so realistic looking, and horn and face look var 3 dimensional but heres something i would fix up a little,
the left wing, (right in our view) because i don't know where its coming from,
the right wing (left in our view) is fine where it is
but anyway, i love this artwork, i love how you made her look sort of like a dragon, (her neck/chest skins)
and the eyes, are stunning and so realistic.

Hello AssassinMonkey! I'm Ravenhoof and this is my first critique. I really am impressed with this piece, and how it took only six hours to make. I like everything in this picture, but I will only talk about what stands out the most to me. What I think was really well done was the gradation of the colours in the mane. The greens and blues blend harmoniously together. I also like the attention you gave to the details in the skin, making it appear like armour, and the hooks and holes blend very well. The way the horn was made to look like it had layering was a very nice touch. The last thing that stands out to me the most is the detailing of the eyes. The way the greens blend together and the reflection of the light is marvellous. The slightly sinister look in Chrysalis' eyes definitely will put someone on edge. I like that alot.

It is not true! She is the most beautiful and wonderful!
Zenie250's avatar
Well no I do think its pretty art I was just saying she' creepy as in he captured the character really well, cause personally I think Chrysalis is one of the more creepy characters of MLP
HunterGiantesses's avatar
And I believe that She is the most beautiful and lovely. The rest of the characters are ugly.
Zenie250's avatar
LOL if you say so XD I dont even watch the show really I just like it for the comedic humor.

What the fuck? If you have no idea what you write, then shut your mouth.
Zenie250's avatar
Did I say something offensive for you to swear at me? and what do you mean by I dont know what I write? all I said was my opinion about the character and how well this artist captured her, someones obviously a bit too touchy.
