Single Mother by Mickeymonster Single Mother by Mickeymonster
See that face? That's the face of a mother taking care of a couple of hundreds, at the same time.

I have no idea how she keeps up with all of them. :XD:

I feel that you should make her seem more tired and depressed with the eyes by making them slightly glossy with sadness and with deep bags under them and havig he hair messy and holding a baby reaching for her nose or pulling on her hair and the shading could be more graduall and the background could use a little more work and all the more "mature" changlings should look less feral and should instead look rowdy instead of murderous with her trying to get them to behave instead of making her look scared at the fact that there about to rip each other's throats out. But otherwise it is great work

Being a single mother isn't that easy. =w=;

Well, if she have her husband, it'll ease the burden a bit. I wonder will she ever regret if she kills the husband.

HAHA, 20% more Mother! :D (Big Grin)

Oh her face... XD

I love the Changeling horde, too. It's amazing how expressive they all are by themselves! It kind of reminds me of Jack Davis's stuff when he worked for Mad Magazine, like those big crowd scenes he'd do where each character was doing their own funny thing.

I swear the four in the lower left remind me of the ninja turtles for some unknown reason. O.o?

Her face is saying "Celestia, help me..."

They say a single picture is worth a thousand words. I think most of the words this picture is worth would be variations of "Please. Take. Some."

"I will pay you to take them. Please ..."

Truly, we can see in Chrysalis that timeless horrid agony that the blissfully ignorant call "Motherhood".

Love the look of their teeth!

Intriguing job with Chrysalis's expression.

Probably just some drone.

noelani4 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i think there like ants, they have no father... sucks to be queen.
ionoid Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2015
Actually, ants do have fathers. The queen mates with the all male "drones", and births a large amount of all female "workers" as well as a few more drones.
noelani4 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Actually, what you described are bees.while all worker bees are female, all worker ants are males, and there is a small group of males ants that the queen will mate with and any eggs she lays that are fertilized by the males will be females, but any eggs she lays that she doesn't fertilizes will always be male, and because the're so many of said eggs the males make up most of the colony.

what I should have said is, assuming all those changeling are male, there like ants.
ionoid Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2015
I'm sorry, but both worker bees and worker ants are sterile females. Here's proof:…

It's a common mistake.

*sigh* I may not be a brony, nor do I know the show, but.....

Whats with all the razor blade teeth of kids?! USE PROTECTION AND QUIT SHITTING OUT KIDS XD

But can someone explain this to me? The whole joke on this picture? Cuz im a lost puppy here.... o-o
Mickeymonster Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2014
The joke is that she has a whole army of those "changelings" as she calls them but it's never stated how they work for her, probably like a bee-hive of some sort, but the funny alternative would be if she was the "single mother" of every one of those changelings, which is never fully stated in the show itself, which leaves the fans possible answers to fill it out with.

If all of her children were completely capable of independent thought, then it would be a bit troublesome.

But if they function as a hive mind with her as their source of direction, then that's not as bad. Just like social insects in real life, or the Zerg Swarm of StarCraft.

Except the Zerg Swarm is a bit more flexible than real life social insects; the Overmind was the original "hive leader", then it was killed at the end of StarCraft I, and replaced by Infested Kerrigan as the Queen of Blades at the end of the Brood War.

And she makes some "structural adjustments" by replacing the former Cerebrates with the current Broodmothers, which were capable of independence if Kerrigan was ever killed. This of course, would ensure that the Swarm would never be without a leader for long; the weak would be assimilated or destroyed, while the strongest would become the new leader.
