Well, after the concept art and three big Livestream sessions, it is done, Chaos and Evil, a high effort piece featuring humanized Chrysalis and Discord.

I went all out on the shading in a similar way to Can Can Pinkie. The background is kind of abstract-ish, but fun to do nonetheless. For the character, I had a lot of fun rendering the Victorian inspired outfits, especially for Chrysalis. In all, just a big excuse to draw these two for no particular reason, and definitely my two favorite villains from the show (notice the distinct lack of Sombra).

Expect there to be a time lapse later on.

Well, that's all I have to say about it, enjoy.

Congratulations, sir, you have done the impossible: making Chrysalis and Discord look even more freakier than ever.

The way Discord looks like, it reminds me of King Candy from Wreck-It Ralph

Discord reminds of Azazello from Master and Margaret. If you read it, of course

I love this depiction. I can see such a story behind it, as if it's its own little universe...

Chrysalis is the despotic owner of a sweatshop, her changelings as the orphaned workers who endlessly toil for her.

Discord is a small-time crime-lord who runs a small gang of petty thieves.

And Sombra, though not depicted, is a corrupt coal baron who holds the city in the palm of his hand.

Digging the back story of Chrysalis. I like to toy with the idea of Chrysalis and her changelings as being this very destructive and and exploitative bunch, and her kingdom being essentially a Victorian-esque shit hole that constantly needs resources to keep going while not improving the standard of living at all. While her kingdom stubbornly clings to old ways, Equestria continues to prosper as it embraces new ideas.

As for Sombra, that idea sounds cool. But the character, Sombra himself, is just so inherently underdeveloped and boring. Really, he still feels like nothing but a place holder.
