Gijinka - Chrysalis/Cadance Concepts by emlan Gijinka - Chrysalis/Cadance Concepts by emlan
I looooove Queen Chrysalis' adorable design however I can't quite pin what she'd be wearing when translating to a human figure yet...I figure I might as well dump the brainstorm lineup here even though it's "effort" quality.

Will most likely pick one to do a proper pic on a later occasion...
Let me hear what combos you like! It's fun to read.

Included the wedding dresses for good measure too...A+B is Chrysalis and C is what true Cadance wears in the end.

I like the socks and sleeves on 2, the skirt of 4, the neckline of 5 and 6, the sleeves of 9, and the crown on 3.

Please-please, continue work on this!
Wow! I absolutely love these concepts, and I don't even watch MLP that much! I agree with HedgehodgeMonster and think a combo of 4's top and 5's skirt would look best for Chrysalis, as it would really evoke images of the evil fairies that the Changlings are named after and partially based on. I like Cadance's looks, but she seems like an easy pony to turn into a human. Again, great ideas. Even though I'm not a mega-huge fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I can appreciate the amount of time and dedication that bronies and pegasisters put into their artwork, and I salute them for it.
10 seems the best in terms of silhouette while 6 and 7 have it best in highlights. Definitely better without shoes though 2 gives her the queen in rags feeling.

i see chrysalis as gliding like a vampire when she moves 10 would seem to give that illusion at least on smaller movements or sway more towards succubi when she would move in it

3 and 13 is interesting like a corrupted knight in shining armor or fariytale prince

I like the first one of Chrysalis.

I always go with the idea of "Simple is better." For a character like Chrysalis, where I focus mostly on her charisma and personality, I'd use something like the bottom left one. For Cadence, there's not a lot of personality to begin with, so she has to look good to make up for that- I'd personally use the third from the left for the wedding and the second from the right for informal.
