Queen of Deceit - Inks by Longinius-II Queen of Deceit - Inks by Longinius-II
Some more portraits for you guys, because I enjoy doing more detailed ones like this. to be truthful though, I kind of just wanted to draw snakes, and Chrusalis seemed to work the best with snakes. I was thinking of adding some jewellery to the mix, but Chrysalis always felt like the kind of character who would eschew that sort of thing, it's just hard to find something that would fit her. So I wanted to add some more details to the snakes themelves, and colouring them will be the biggest challenge in this pic. :P

Hope you guys like the inks.

That's some pretty good work however I find myself connecting some strange dots.  First I realised one appears to have a sun on it's head and the other a crescent moon.  Then I noticed they seem to be crying.  I came up with the odd conclusion the Chrysalis has turned the royal sisters into her pet snakes in victory. 

I know this probably wasn't what you intended but it was a train of thought I wanted to shear. 

And you're right, snakes do suit her quite well.

The tears are not real tears but rather markings on the scales that have been painted on to them. As for the emblems, I was thinking maybe the snakes each are an anathema to each given princess, meaning their venom is harmless to anyone else, but is deadly to Celestia and Luna specifically. (Also it just looks really, really cool)

:D Always nice to hear what people think about such things.

I've never seen Chrysalis compared with a snake, but the concept of deceit does fit very nicely with the Changeling theme. Very clever!

She and the changelings are usually just stuck with their insectoid-style. But snakes seem to have worked well. :D

I like your inks so much, they're so clean and nice. I also learnt stuff from them the most. It's nice to see where the lines go before the colors are added.

Happy to hear they have helped! I do agree that my inks are probably my best skill so far. :D
