Queen Chrysalis by Key-Feathers Queen Chrysalis by Key-Feathers
DONE, omg so done, finally!

Chrysalis picks herself up at the edge of her homelands, after her boot from Canterlot.

I really enjoyed working on this one, I was mainly experimenting and pushing myself to do a full background, and I feel it’s my best work to date!

I plan more of these in the future. While I do have Rarity in my list for “soon”, I am a sucker for villains, so who would you prefer to see next, Discord or Nightmare moon?!

Does she can fly? her wings look torn apart real bad, I love the scarab thing over the wings. It makes me wonder i that was the effect mlp animators were looking for.

Okay, as tired as I am of seeing Chrysalis fan art, this is pretty awesome. While a lot of other deviants try to make her look more like a pony, you've done an excellent job bringing out her insect-like qualities. Excellent work. :thumbsup::)

Wow, this is a cool design. Nice touch with the outer wing...guard...things (whatever they're called) and how her "mane" looks as if it's the same material as her wings. The landscape is very nicely done too. However something seems just a little off about the river in the mid-background...maybe that the angle it's at would mean it would not be so "calm", although I can't say I really know enough about water effects to say how to show flowing movement though it...

As for villains, Discord's nice and all, but I love Nightmare Moon's design a lot, so I'd be quite interested in seeing what you'd do for her.
