This is for the BronyCAN Drawing Contest that can be found here: leaffox.deviantart.com#/journa…

We were instructed to draw a scene of the Changelings invading a landmark in Canada.  I wanted to chose a location that wouldn't be common, so I went with the Bloedel Floral Conservatory in Vancouver!
It was a peaceful day at the conservatory when suddenly Queen Volucris and her Changeling army attacked!  Crashing through the windows, they took every pony by surprise!  But they won't give up without a fight!  I wanted to portray a large scale invasion, and an almost war-like battle, and I think mission accomplished.  The only thing I could say is maybe the background is too bright and distracts...  Oh well, I'm very proud of this and put a lot of work into it!  Next time, I'll make the outlines of the ponies larger though =P

What I like most about this is that I asked some Canadian friends if I could draw their OCs!  With the exception of two of my own OCs (Foxglove and Pinstripe), every pony you see is from Canada!
Foxglove (mint coat and brown/white mane) and Pinstripe (with the hat) belong to me
Skylight Spinner (purple coat and black mane) belongs to :icontinker-jet:
Ink Strip (blue coat and yellow mane) belongs to :iconpatrona:
Exo (white/black coat and orange/green mane) belongs to :iconfireflytwinkletoes:
Hershie (brown coat and red/yellow mane) belongs to :iconspotty-bee:
Thanks so much to those who let me use your characters!  And I'm sorry to those I couldn't get to )=  As you can see, there's not too much space to work with.

MLP: FiM belongs to :iconhasbroplz:, :iconfyre-flye:  Queen Volucris belongs to BronyCAN.

Thank you, and thank you for letting me draw Hershie! ^-^

I'm glad it feels that way.  It was really important that it feel like there were hundreds of Changelings, like in the show =3

Aww thank you, and thank you for letting me draw Exo! ^-^

I'm a little disappointed.  It didn't turn out the way I wanted it to, because some of the characters clashed too badly with the background...  I tried my best to take off the eye hurt.
It still looks epic though xP

Thanks for the fav too! :hug:

Such are the perils of choosing to use characters that multiple people of different tastes designed :P

It does look great, though!

Tell me about it...  Why is the idea to include other people's OCs in one picture so cool but turn out so wrong? D=
I regret nothing!!


Thank you! :hug:
