All Canadians! Be on the Look out for Queen Volucris and her arctic changelings! They're planing on Invading Canada! Princess Apricity has put out a full warning, don't let the Aquila Defend Canada alone!

This is my entry into the BronyCan Art contest. Won 5th Place. :3

The Aquila is my OC Captain Colts' Airship, and since Captain Colts is from Vanhoover he took the his vessel back to home for the Defense... but the Airship is not meant for battle, it's an exploration vessel.
I did not make the Character Queen Volucris, she's a construct for BronyCan. However, I didn't think it looked right for her Changelings to be Black, so I recoloured them to fit her colour theme. I also tried for once a more loose and less detailed approach for backgrounds, wanted to mess around with the idea.

Wish I could afford to go to BronyCan this year, but I put all my money towards a Trip to Germany in the summer and I'm ok with that.

Always loved idea of a cold changeling race, I still need to do one thing with mine. ^^ ''tis a shame hasbro decided not to have other changeling hives and transform from predatory creatures to something cute and child friendly

WOW. This was my initial reaction when I saw this art piece I honestly did NOT think something like this would be submitted from the previous ones submitted. Not that I am saying the others are bad just that this is a completely different style from what I have seen. At this point in time there are 10 submissions for the contest so now that someone won't be chosen in the top 9, the contest has officially begun/became interesting!
