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.
What do you think?

good for you, chrysalis :) go enjoy the beach
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!

She looks very beautiful and happy.  I wonder... she has no crown, she's not the changeling queen anymore (I am not a brony, so I ask)

She is on vacation, so she does not have to wear the crown all day :D

LOL That's pretty understandable ;)
Argueably, this is quite nicely done. Also, is it just me or is her horn supposed to be thinner and her pupils slits instead of round.
