(25.07.2012) The image went through a few smaller or bigger changes and improvements (thanks to Trotsworth's critique and suggestions). The old version can be found here (for comparison): sta.sh/01c4a2r5hpa7

Also, featured in EqD's Drawfriend #514! www.equestriadaily.com/2012/07…

---------------

On 1st July, MLPFriendshipIsMagic group came up with a contest to draw anything featuring at least two MLP villains. I was originally considering various silly ideas, like Chrysalis and NMM chilling on a sponge swimming in a kitchen sink, but didn't settle on anything up until recently, when they posted a reminder about the deadline (25th July). Then I randomly got the idea to draw the 3 main villains (Nightmare Moon, Discord and Queen Chrysalis) as babies, in roughly this setting you see here.

The idea evolved a bit in the process; for example, the initial idea was to completely exaggerate the size of Chrysalis' horn and to turn it into a tree on which Discord would be lying, but it was quickly changed into Discord lying on his own tail and simply supporting himself on Chrys' horn. Not that he needs to do so, considering that he's not supposed to make sense.

Another idea that got evolved is that originally, I wanted to put a firefly on Chrys' nose and make her being surrounded by a bunch of them. Then at some point, a light-bulb turned on in my head and I decided to use parasprites instead. Funny little critters; drawing them all with different expressions was a blast.

Originally, the parasprite on Chrys' nose was supposed to face her, but since it would be hard to indicate it, I decided to go with him being all trollish, complete with a trollface. I still made him shiny, as a reminiscent of the initial fireflies idea. I like to think that he's that last Yellow Lum from Rayman 2 (the one that gets eaten by Captain Razorbeard).

Since the initial idea for the image was roughly fitting the size of an iPhone wallpaper, I decided to go for it. People with iPhones should be able to get some cool wallpapers once in a while, don't you think?

What else can I say aside of that? I don't know. Enjoy the image.

PS: I wonder if there's anybody recognizing the reference behind those swirls that surround Discord.

The concept and coloring is nice. The art style is also high standard but the fault that throws me off is the crowded feel of the scene :(

The parasprite on Chrysalis's face probably bothers me the most as it really obscures her face. The wings also complicate the look. I think four or five of the critters would have been enough in this pic. (Btw, the ones eating things are great :D)

A little headroom for Nightmare Moon would also create a bit more breathing space.

I like the subtle differences is the background for the three characters. At first I though those square shapes behind Discord were a mistake, but it soon clicked when I noticed the positioning with the swirls.

Well executed and very cute XD

I love you idea. It's very creative and original. I love how Discord is eating the moon. It adds a cute effect to the picture.

Although it's a bit crowded, so it's hard to focus on the main idea of the picture without your eyes wanting to look else where. I do like how you used up the whole page though.

I like the subtle difference in the background for each character. The backgrounds describe each character so perfectly.

The colors compliment each other so well and your coloring is perfect.

Overall, this is a great picture. I can' wait to see more. :)
