Wow.
First of all, amazing and great!
The originality is surprisingly above average.
It's not uncommon to use light and shadow with Chrysalis and put her in a cave, but giving her "ice powers" (for lack of a better term) and having the aethereal water like flowing designs is amazing and incredible too!
It looks like she's just risen out of the water pool or dripping wet from something!
The light and shadow here is used very well, something I expect from Chrysalis art work, but this one is cleverly done.
And the emotions, what is she happy about? Why is she smiling?
Where are her children? Why is she alone?
And a small detail, her reflection! The surface she's standing on, it's ice, not water! (sorry!)
Or maybe crystal?
I don't know, but good work on that, the tail is more noticeable for that than the rest!
She looks ragged, but proud of her appearance and not afraid to hide!
And are those glowing blue mushrooms in the background? Nice detail!
This is simply perfect and I'll definitely remember this one!
Please keep up the great work!

I feel really weird giving this a near perfect score simply because I feel like this high of a score should be more rare, but whatever! This is worth it!

I guess the first thing I should talk about is Vision. Everything in this piece seems thought through very well and gives it a very sunken-treasure, ghost ship kinda feel. Like the kind of feeling you get when you get to the sunken ship part of The Goonies You saw something in your head and went for it- and it shows! This piece is super original and creative- everything flows together well, much like water. Combining Bioshock and MLP is super great, as well, and something I've never really seen before (I've also never really played Bioshock- too scary for me- but I feel like a Big Pinkie would be horrifying and great)

The technique on this is superb- The highlights don't overwhelm the piece and naturally draw your eyes to the important bits. That little curl of water on the left there- that's some good shit. Really love how it's painted! Chryssie's hair seems a bit overwhelming with the highlight's though, and really detracts from the detail around the face- particularly her eyes/snout. The water dripping from the holes in her legs is a really nice touch! It's also wonderfully painted, and her wings are really dynamic. I've never seen her wings painted so well!

The background, while minimalist, serves it's function well and really compliments the main focus of the piece. It's a really nice, understated background, quite frankly, and I'm in love with it! If you released it as a desktop wallpaper, consider me signed the HECK up.

Overall this painting is super well done and deserves a lot more attention than it's gotten- and that's saying something! This art piece is something that could honestly stand in an MLP gallery- something to represent the artist's in the fandom's works. Kudos!

Do you think we will go see Chrysalis in her home? Which I can only assume is the swamp lands of the Everfree. Her castle is just a rundown wreck with mud and muck. Rarity and Fluttershy would have to be called by the Cutie Map for this one.
