Good work!
But if you want a correct french title it should be "la rue des changelins"

And to think that I was so confident that my French wasn't terrible. .-.

Thank you so much; I'll go edit it to make it plural. Though I'll probably keep the English spelling of "changelings" because <<changelins>> isn't that easy of a cognate to me. :)

I've never read the comic, so thanks for notifying me.

Well, how canon the comic is is up to debate. And even so, the conquered the mansion and the land surrounding it, indicating it is now just a conquest, an imperial colony of theirs. Their homelandi still remains to be seen.

Is this an emulation of something? Anyways, pretty nice work, I love the muted colors.

I honestly have no idea. I just thought of the words "changeling" and "society" and decided to work with that, which is funny since I normally never seek out changeling fanart paintings. If you mean the style, then I am a fan of the works of *purplekecleon and *AquaSixio, if any influence came from them. :)

Thanks, I'm glad to know someone likes the hardest part of trying to finish this. Guess I'll have to check EqD now. :)

THANK YOU. This is the kind of Changeling artwork I like, instead of the constant reharsh of the baseless hive concept. I like to Changelings as individuals.

Well, it's hard to really define the hive concept as "baseless" since they pretty much acted like such during the S2 finale. However, I appreciate your comment very much and I am glad you noticed the concept of my drawing. You're welcome. :D

Actually, I must disagree. If they were a true hive mind, they would have been able to detective that Fluttershy was not one of them when she pretended to be. And their differing facial expressions and appreciation for mischeive (the scene with one and Pinkie) does show they can think for themselves and have individual personalities.

Personally, I envision their homeland as something oriental like Japan or Eastern European like Russia or Ukraine. But still, the grainy french scene does work well here, as well as the differing male and female designs.

That's not really their homeland. If that is the place those cats lived, then it is just another conquest. I imagine their homeland being overseas.

But if you see the third issue preview, they took it over from the Wuvy cats, meaning it was not theirs originally. It must be just an imperial colony for them. Yes, Chrysalis calls the kingdom hers, but so may she call all the others she's taken over.

I forgot all about the scene with Pinkie; now I truly see your point. Again, thank you for the insight. :)

Whoa. Now that is a concept I did not expect to see, and I like it! Changelings, of all things, apparently living a normal, very much ponylike life in a city. And you manage to pull it off very well. This alone is already noteworthy.
That colouration is most certainly changeling-y, and together with the peaceful atmosphere of the scene it creates a very unusual and interesting impression. That tree is sure interesting, too, particularly the leaves. The omnipresent flowers help create the feeling of calm and a lack of overt threat, even though the colours of the scene are fit for a horror picture. The one in the foreground changeling's hair is the best touch.
Once again, you manage to take aspects that could appear contradictory and make them work together in a great way. Really impressive.
