The villains version of "Self-Expression"! leekfish.deviantart.com/art/Se...

Of course, they don't all have cutie marks, so I had to improvise. I wasn't quite sure how to represent "chaos" for Discord, and with google image searches (used in an attempt to gather inspiration) only turned up explosions, I sort of gave up and went with the goofy swirl thing, haha. I find this piece kind of amusing, honestly... =P

Fun thing to note- this was the last print I completed before Equestria LA, so attendees who stopped by my booth got to see it first! Though, mostly just cause I didn't have time to upload it before packing up and flying to LA... whoops.

I think it would have been better is Sombra's cutie mark was a stair case.

You chose swirl? And there is rally no other reason for it? mmm?
Loving the picture. Thought wouldn't Sombra have a darker corrupted version of the heart? Or the green eye mark of darkness?

I'll explain. He wants the crystal heart so he can reclaim his kingdom, but failed.

So in short they want a chaotic and eternal night with lot of love and heart-shaped crystals?

Hummmm....

Wonderful work. And which one is your favorite?

If you mean my favorite villain, then probably Chrysalis! Discord is a close second, but I was disappointed that they "reformed" him in Season 3.

I take this from the MLP:FIM Official Guide Book (www.amazon.com/My-Little-Pony-... at page 54 about what Meghan McCarthy said about him and I quote: "I don't think I'd want to reform all of our villains.[...] But for a character like Discord, 'reforming' him allows us to tell new stories with the characters. He gets to be the not-always-reliable ally instead of the know enemy."

In short, he's not longer villain but won't stop himself to do silly and chaotic things.

Why Chrysalis? Her design, her motive.....?

So he's going to be the Not-so-helpful-helper. Interesting, I kind of saw that coming but I'd like to see that. I'd love to see Discord try and solve a problem, even an everyday problem like the main cast does but with his own brand of "help"

Yeah, I read that. I can understand their reasoning, but he was a fantastic villain!

I suppose a bit of both! I was glad she saw more development in the comic series, and I hope she comes back again.

I would've used a golden apple for chaos. Otherwise, maybe just a wicked scribble.

Looks sweet, though!

It was difficult to come up with an icon/logo for "chaos" and I was rushing to finish this before EQLA so I ended up just sort of saying "screw it" haha

I almost wish he did have wings- would've helped me fill his panel space a bit better! (kidding)

I adore Chrysalis in this image, for sure.

Discord is still best villian for me, and Nightmare Moon could have been better. I'm rather neutral on Sombra (Really? You focused on the one kingdom when you could've attacked Equestria itself. After all, it had its main defense gone during that entire period.)

But still, I wish they better developed Chrysalis. She could have been so much more badass than she already is. Hell, she coulda tied with Discord, or even teamed him! After all, Zerg tend to cause panic, fear, and general chaos.
