...along with a buncha nasty nothern changelings. I made the changelings white like their Queen as they'll stick out like a sore thumb in the snow if they were normal coloured. At least, that's what I think. I'm pretty sure this is the most ambitious project I've ever done and I made it just in time gaaahhhhhh...

This is for the competition held by :iconmlpfriendshipismagic: in conjunction with BronyCAN where the idea is a changeling attack on a landmark of Canada. I picked the Rideau Canal for my piece. I took some liberties drawing the place and I apologize for that but I mean no offense. The changelings are from a wintery place and that is Queen Volucris that were introduced for this contest.

I have a part of my process recorded for those interested youtu.be/TUlnOp-TlRU

Still like this pic, I would love if they ad introduced a ice/snow changeling race. Has my own frost chang,ring I created myself, though the drones look a lot like their queen but shorter. I like idea mor avirety of changelings and some hives have drones have air and others finds. Depending on the queens hive preference

And that's why we have a lot of fan-made changelings x3

A lot changelings created by the fans here on deviantart is what got me into mlp. I fed them the most unique of all the races and disappointed how they ended up doing them?

Mmmm yeah, I can't help but feel the same way, honestly. They're now too colourful for me xD

They lost that cool predatory look that drew them to me. I did like their bodies did become awhile again but not fan of overall design. Especailly thorax design which is strangest of them all, I tolerate the other ones bus his design is the strangest. To me if chrysalis lost her hive it should been to her own daughter who then become the new queen. The other changelings trasnformed but more hole version of there classic form with bit more variation to me would been better. Even have some different coloring as well, not their main black chitin but like eyes, tail, fin, Andy along the ack and belly like fans shown. ^^ but that's what the fandom is for. Now what I give if they introduced a sentian wolf species,

Ohhh I've checked out your gallery to see your changeling and I like the mane colour :D This changeling I drew here however, is for a previous contest so it's actually not my changeling OC but whoever hosted that contest.

Well i often lor fans draw there own changelings since show never did anythign with them and mind ruined them. Thank you, artist did very well and im hoping get seppen in exotic fallout out attire with winter theme. I like how foe has a bit of scifish feel to it compaired to original fallout,even if it did have scifi in it as well.
