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.

Do you have a full version of just wedding dress C? I want to get a replica Cadance's wedding dress made at some point and could use a good human reference.

Sorry friend this is only size/polish I have so I suppose a rough base is all you can go by...I'm sure it can work out tho!

After I saw this, I tried sketching out a design of the dress. #1 for the bottom dress, 4 for the collar and sleeves, 5 for the transparent bottom dress part, 5 and 6 for both the sleeve and shoulder collar idea and half 7 and half 8 for the top/belt design. Practice sketch is done, and it turned out pretty good! Like a combination of Maleficent and the Evil Queen's dresses, but in Changling form!

Yuhu, thanks for humoring me! If you still have the sketch laying around I'd love to see it.

I'm loving all those outfits you drew for Chrysalis :D

Wedding dress: B
Chrysalis: 4 but with the skirt of 5
Bulbaderp Featured By Owner May 26, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I think that Chysalis would look nice in a corset.
Hetalia-G8 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
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

4, 7, 8, 9 and 10

YoshidaNezumi Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013
I think five is the best one.
twilightsparkle511 Featured By Owner May 18, 2013
10 is my favourite I think. I love the wedding ones!!
Nbbren Featured By Owner May 16, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
The love the designs
Slendergurl Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I like the first one of Chrysalis.
Demonbane775 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013
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.

My favorites are 5 and 10. Awesome job!
MelodyForte Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I would have to say 4 and 10 are my favorites. I think she is seen as an outcast and can only dress in tattered clothes such as these. The rest just seem very strict and just not Chrysalis in my opinion. But all of thses designs are just stunning! Congrats!
stuka1991 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
4 and 9 are my favorites
LolumadMasha Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012

*Adds to favs*
Lord-Luca-the-Third Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012
Just my two cents worth, i think Chrysalis 10 looks better, just for the regal-yet-tattered look to it. Everything else seems primitive or else violently direct, which really isn't Chrysalis at all. As for Cadence, they called all be used, thought not that last one in my opinion, makes her look much too young. Having said that, all of these designs look lovely.
emlan Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012
My mental image of her HQ is a swamp so I designed after that hehe
Raydhen Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooooh... I love Queen Chrysie and this is a Great Design and Cool for Cosplay too XD

emlan Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012

I love 9's hair and a combo of 2 & 5 for outfits.
Cheezyem Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
4,5 or 6 for chrysalis, although they are all really wel designed (:
AwsomeEmKay Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
Seriously, each of these dresses are so beautiful drawn and perfectly in character, it almost hurts me that the ponies aren't human so that Cadence and Chrysalis could've worn these!! I'm seriously jealous of both your amazing concepts AND Chrysalis' wardrobe... VERY well done!! :D
Honey23530 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
5 For Chrysalis in my opinion:aww:
showiki Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Student General Artist
Luv it!
Chips13 Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012
As for the Chrysalis design, I like 2, 4 and 8's mid-length skirt look, with 5 and 6's bare shoulders look and 7's crown. I can't decide on one design. @_@ No. 3 and 11 look good as a humanised male Chrysalis designs imho.

For wedding gown Chrysalis, I like B better.

Creative design btw, I wouldn't be able to come up with so many designs by myself. =D
MisterStolas Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
Wow I love all the different dress designs for Chrysalis, it sortof reminds me of Death's armors from Darksiders 2 :)

I like the 5, 6, 8 (with the longer skirt from 7) and 10 best. These all look really awesome too.
jaeha2714 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012
no.11 looks like power armor suit
samurottgirl10 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012
I like 9 or 10. :)
dr-lesh Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Student Digital Artist
#5, C and the last one are perfect :)
CatsTuxedo Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I know #3 isn't exactly fitting for a sultry temptress like Chrysalis, but I can't help but be drawn to it; I'm a sucker for girls/ladies in robust, manly attire :P

And I'm liking the Cadance outfit to the immediate right of #C. Quite professional-looking :)
Twilightangel004 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
Love the outfits. Personally when I think of what Chrysalis looks like as a human I can't help but think of Voldemort.
Dragonswolf97 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012
in my opinion i think #9 would be best, or a combined concept of #9 and 10
uncontrolled-fire Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
i love 5,6,7, and 10. great thoughts
