I absolutely think that this is one of, maybe even, the best drawing/painting I have ever seen! I just love how you pose the pony as if she is in charge of everything and also that she is beautiful at the top but then as you soon scroll down you get a closer look of what she really is. This might not make sense to a lot of other people, but she is a very stunning pony that you have created in your mind, that has value and a specific tranquility that is nothing like being calm or peaceful! I hope that others agree with me and I truly wish you the best, of applause! Thank you for your wonderful art
I think I am going to put the summary at the beginning. This Is Amazing.
Chrysalis: Shadowing is nice on the body itself, showing off features and adding a depth to the body shape that could of never been shown otherwise. The shape itself is good, the tall slender really shows well, and gives a nice impression of size. Colouring of the chitin is fantastic, and blends incredibly well into the body itself giving a nice mix of fantasy and realism to the image. The mane and tail are absolutely stunning, stranded and decayed at the same time yet you somehow made it look as though its how it should be. As usual the eyes are your strong point, so much depth behind them and the colouring adds a whole extra layer behind the look. The horn is not something I would think I would ever find myself commenting, but as Chrysalis' is so unique within the show it deserves some recoginition. The extra detail is nice, the almost ethereal glow actually making the horn almost pop out of the image. The decay on the legs, wings and hair all look really good. The decay on the legs themselves, almost leaking power is a wonderful addition to the whole aesthetic. Background: Not much I can say other than I really like it.
Main Likes: The eyes, the chitin, and the hair all have so much detail and blend nicely.
Dislikes: As usual it is incredibly hard to find fault with your work, my only complaint, and it took a long while to find, would be the back left leg looks too far forward for the position to be stable.
Theres a lot of detail in this image and because of that a question rises in me. You show her tail to be made of hair or make it look to be hair but with the holes how can you explain the way hair keeps that position? either she uses a lot of hairspray or is too dirty its sticky and doesnt fall off, I know its for the sake of the effect shown in the cartoon but I guess thats the same reason why they never gave so much detail to it, to keep the effect (not that the hair in any other character has a lot of detail but I just felt like pointing that out). The detail in the necklace is incredible it seems to be part of her caparace or is it supposed to be part of it? The cavity in her chest and the green stuff growing in the holes in her legs give it a feel of undead, if you ever played Metroid Prime Corruption thats how spacepirates look after being corrupted by phazon if it is a coincidence then it was an amazing one if its not and you intended that I have to say It was nicely captured, however I have to say that horses (if she were to be one) dont have the ribs in that position, once mor I know is for the sake of the effect and to give a more human look to it as it is always easier to correlate to human like characters but like I said before I just wanted to point that out. As for the magical horn, I love the gooey effect on magic.
Love it! The dark/horror aspect is amazing and I think your the first to do it. If I saw her I'd bow/kneel before her and pledge my loyalty to her. And I saw that because she is my favorite character...well she's tied with Rainbow Dash...bit still! She is an awesome character and I love the approach you took to Chrysalis. Well done.
