Chrysalis by 90Sigma Chrysalis by 90Sigma
"First we take Canterlot. Then, all of Equestria!"
Every now and again, something happens in the fandom that makes no sense to me. For example, I don't know how Chrysalis managed to become so popular. [Shrugs] She's got an interesting design and all, but in the end, she still wanted to basically harvest ponies for food...

This was a request from someone to the VectorClub. I don't know who it was (let me know if it was you), but I hope you like it! The most difficult part of vectoring Chrysalis is remembering how to spell her name correctly.

And the only thing more annoying than Inkscape crashing is when it exports artifacts into the PNG.

Vector all the ponies: gallery | journal | SVG files (see the journal post for request + help information).
Reuse: Do whatever you like with this, because I don't like Chrysalis. (As always, no commercial usage allowed.)

Vectored from episode 2x26: A Canterlot Wedding, part 2. The Chrysalis character and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic are the property of Lauren Faust and/or Hasbro and/or others.

"... Contrary to popular belief, Queen Chrysalis is not the ruler of all of Changelingkind; although she herself makes this pretentious claim as part of her long list of titles, she is merely one of the countless pretenders to that title.

Politically, the Changeling race is currently experiencing a period that could be best described as a "Warring States" era, similar to those of in the history of the Neighponese and Qilinese Empires in the East: A unified Changeling nation, a polydomous hive known as the Grand Empire of the Changelings, once existed in the past for over a thousand years, founded by Rhyniognatha the Conqueror, the first Changeling King, who ruled the Changelings from the Throne of Horns in his hive palace, along with his descendants.

However, centuries of court corruption and crown negligence, dynastic power-struggles, crises in the form of famines, natural disasters and increasing monster attacks led to the gradual weakening of the once powerful ruling king/queen and central government and increase autonomy of the Changeling nobility ruling domains in the monarch's name. When the last supreme changeling queen and her royal family were assassinated three centuries ago, the Grand Empire disintegrated and fragmented into hundreds of smaller hives and colonies.

Controlling these splintered territories are rival Drone Lords and Brood Matrons who claimed the title of Kings and Queens, and fought for control of the Changeling lands, each claiming to be the legitimate inheritor of the throne and ruler of all of Changelingkind. The Changeling lands, once fertile, had been reduced to ruined badlands by three centuries of constant warfare and dark magic, filled with demolished hives, infested with wild beasts and bandits, and strewn the rotting carapace remains of dead Changelings, whether fallen warrior or massacred innocents. 

The suffering of the Changeling people, however, are generally ignored by the Changeling warlords; being born to war and rule with absolute power over their subjects, each Drone Lord or Brood Matron are in general vain, ambitious, ruthless and deprave beyond common sanity. All are driven by intense literal and metaphoric hunger for power over their own subjects and other rivals, a goal they continue to pursuit with monomaniacal determination at the expense of everyone and everything else. 

The greater Changeling warlords continue to fight and scheme among themselves for supremacy, while lesser warlords, such as the relatively young and ambitious Queen Chrysalis, unable to wrest control of greater warlords' and risk conquest by them, often expand outwards to seek and conquer new territories and races to expand their power and bring new harvest of cattle love to the Changeling lands. Many smaller hives, breeds and colonies, desperately trying to escape fighting, oppression and extermination by stronger hives, fled to all corners of the world in what would become known as the Changeling diaspora, establishing Changeling communities, both peaceful or malicious, among many kingdoms of the world in secret.

As of today, no self-proclaimed Changeling King and Queen have yet prevail over all other rivals, and that is not likely to change in the foreseeable future with the current state of affairs in the Changeling badlands. Until a Changeling warlord whose power and cunning could rival Rhyniognatha himself emerges to wipe out all other rivals, the Throne of Horns shall remain empty..."

sometimes a character just has it. 
I really love her because she's an equal to Celestia. She's the same size as her and has a kingdom of her own, as well as extremely powerful magic.

I mentioned in my other Chrysalis vector that the two shared a VA, and that Chrysalis often adopted poses I'd expect Trixie to use.
And thank you!

Well, i admit. I first watched the episodes on Monday, and i thought she was fine as a villian. I think she was very well developed. Like i said, i wasn't a fan of her plans, but i do like her design. =)

I like her design too; I just don't like what her goals were. I don't like Discord for the same reason.

EEEEEE! It looks great! I love how you colored her... (question: Is Chrysalis a Queen or something?

Thanks!

Chrysalis refers to herself as "queen of the Changelings", but to the best of my knowledge, she's never called "Queen Chrysalis" in-show.

The name was only found out by looking at the script. She was only referred to in-show as several forms of "queen", or Cadence pre-reveal

Really? I could swear the name Chrysalis comes up at least once. Then I looked at a transcript and it looks like her name is never said verbally. Interesting.

Give it a try anyway! I knew nothing about art at all before I tried my first vector.

You can try Inkscape for vector image editing. That's the program I use to create vectors.
You could also try the GIMP for raster image editing.

Both programs are free to download and use.
