This artwork is wonderful and full of life. The colors are warm in the back and dark on the character, providing eye drawing constrast to the main subject. The character's joy is clear, though doesn't seem to reach the eyes, and rubs off on the viewer, making them want to jump with joy on the sandy beach as well and rejoice in the subject's happiness. The back ground was well done and captures a warm sunny day on a calm cove fitted with lazy clouds and mossy rocks all of which were done in hues that do not clash or stand out. Though very simple, with only a character, setting, and emotion, this picture captures the imagination of the view and makes us wonder about her circumstance and who she is sharing her sunny day with.
Chrysalis: (singing)"I... am still at the beach and still keeping playing.... while the others are away and are already working...." "I... am still at the beach and still keeping playing.... while the others are away and are already working....", "I... am still at the beach and still keeping playing.... while the others are away and are already working....", "I.... am still at the beach...." Changeling: Y-your highness! I finally found you... Chrysalis: *stop jumping* Oh, great.... Changeling: The... the hive! It's... it's under attack!!!! Chrysalis: What?!?!? How and when this happened?!?!?! Changeling: W-welll... when they found out you ran away.... Chrysalis: I LEFT! After noticing you. Changeling: Uh.... Chrysalis: You queen needed vacations. I needed vacations. Changeling: Y-yes your highness.... *cough* Like I was saying, the hive got attacked by... Changeling2: Your highness! We won! We beated the enemy!! Changeling: Huh? I was gone that long? Changeling2: Uh... yeah.... My queen, we drove out the enemy and saved the colony! Chrysalis: What? This is wonderful! Your queen is so proud of you! Changeling2: And we did it without your assistance my queen. Chrysalis: Uh..... Changeling2: We wanted to show you we could defend ourselves with.... w-where are you going your highness? Chrysalis: Home! If this keep up, soon I'll be the next one to be kicked out of the hive!
Wonderful work. She seems so adorable when she's happy like this. Beware!!!
Of course, the Canterlot based travel agency failed to mention to the Changeling Queen that the coastline Chrysalis intended to spend her vacation time at was formerly a battlefield of a particularly nasty war decades ago, and thus is still filled to the brim with landmines.
Unfortunately, Chrysalis already knew about the beach's dangers, and subsequently hired bomb-disposal teams to get rid of the errant explosives. She then publicly announced the company's deception, backing her claims up with a recording of the phonograph conversation wherein one of the employees assured her the place was safe.
