Changelings Character Sheet by Starbat Changelings Character Sheet by Starbat
Well, in case anyone was interested in what I was up to behind the scenes, during this relative hiatus in the last several weeks, it was working on a prospective MLP fan-film, called Regal, headed by one Ian Ballinger :iconmarshan3q:.

Regal was intended to be the story of Equestria being completely taken over by Changelings, the princesses being kidnapped, and the Mane 6, our heroines, had to rescue them and all of Equestria against seemingly insurmountable odds.

But as it turns out, the Regal film was not to be. It has now come to my attention that it has been canceled. Just as well that it happened sooner, rather than later, when more time and effort had been invested.

The Bright side? I get to share with you what I created as a concept artist for this film project. I mostly did “bad guy” character designs. Any and all constructive criticism is welcome.

Above are depicted the Changelings. I hope you like them. :)

I will probably move to my scraps later.

UPDATE: Wow, I honestly didn't think this would be considered good enough to actually be accepted by EqD! Thanks so much. :)

This is what I was looking for, and surprisingly, the description is 'as same as' what I am thinking all along : There was a sub-Archetype such as Beetle Changeling, Arachnida Changeling, etc. Also, the concept of the Queen's horn and the Hatchling... ^^ Great I say! Hmmm, I can't say anymore, so maybe It will help : (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y)

Well, what can I say? This is just spectacular.
The "young chrysalis" is quiet funny, and the 4th is quiet scary.
And... that one with the antennae give me an inspiration.
It's not a problem if I use his antennae for one of my oc's?
If it's not a problem.

Also, I love your style.

Now, don't think I'm mad, but i need to qrite some numbers becouse the critique want it.

Well I'm glad you like my Changeling ideas.  Although they are kind of obsolete now that the changelings have been "reformed'.

Very interesting ideas for different kinds of Changelings. I really like how you were inspired by other insects and wish we could have seen them in the show.

Have there ever been a Half Pony (Any Kind) Half Changeling? You know, a Stallion changeling that have fallen in love to a mare pony, that a changeling was trying to capture but became difficult to approached because she felt alone someway and he fell bad but she's still kind, he stays with her later revile himself and she  accepted him and then secretly mate with each other, of curse she''l have to leave him if the other Changeling especially the Queen ever finds out and of curse she take the child for it to avoid its fate at the Queen hooves!

I'm sure there's a premise for an existing fanfiction in there, though I can't name it.  I suggest you search around fimfiction.net.  There are a lot of stories that play around with the Changeling concept.
