got some good name suggestions from my tumblr followers, but the “winning entry” comes from one ryuredwingsreturn:


namely because it gave me the “headcanon” that she, along with her entire brood, stinks quite rotten, to the point where it might even be faintly noticeable when they transform themselves into somepony else. so for that reason alone, and because Miasma is a vain bitch, she’s obsessed with perfume.

ponies that have been completely sucked dry of their love for the queen become low class workers that are mainly used for cleaning the hive and other menial tasks. having to walk on jagged rocks most of the time leaves them unable to run away and mimics their superiors' appearance in a grotesque way. they cannot exist outside the hive because they have forgotten what it means to be a free willed individual and will only live to serve the queen.

Husk ponies will often assist normal workers in transporting the queen's eggs into breeding chambers, where those are placed into cocoons to grow into full-size changelings.

perhaps we will find out some day.

Sometimes husk ponies will forget what their assignment was or become more aware of their actual surroundings, at which point a normal worker will transform itself into somepony they know and love and coax them back into doing their tasks.

In this case, Velvet's "mom" would tell her to continue looking after her "little ones".

i don't think he'd like the smell...

Most changelings are unable to transform into something beneath their own body mass. The only exception to this (beside queens) are changeling commanders, who thanks to higher willpower even manage to transform themselves into little fillies. They are usually the first ones to infiltrate a town when the changelings plan to "stock up" on love, because no-one suspects children when it comes to reconnaissance.

Ehhh...thinking Mirage won't be part of the hive, one way or another. I'll think of a way of writing her out for sure later. Working 11 hour days so I haven't had much time to draw, but I've been thinking about it...

She needs to sort of be with the heroes.(although she is quite mean) I was thinking that for one reason or another she ran away from the hive.

She lived on her own for a while until she fucked up royally (literally) and found herself at the mercy of some Princess who offered her a job or a place in her garden as a statue.

It's easy to guess which she chose, and she signed a contract that restricts her actions against the Princess or her forces. The contract would never be enough on it's own, but I think it'll be linked to some piece of gear that is forced upon her. If she acts against the Princess the device will petrify her on the spot...otherwise it acts as armor. (I was thinking a peytral, resembling the ones guard ponies wear. Pic related in case you aren't familiar with your horse armor.)

I really want to draw but I'm working too much atm...

aw, that's ok. wish you luck with your rp.

Though changelings only need to feed on love to survive, they eat other things too in order to produce body liquids which they excrete through the holes in their legs. Those are used to fortify the hive, form cocoons for the eggs, and various other things, such as decorations and traps. Additionally they allow the changelings to walk on almost any surface. The Miasma hive prefers rotten fruit and the occasional carcass, which is what gives it its particular smell.

The most common trap for gathering love is to lay out some sticky liquid in a remote area and wait for a creature to walk into it, then send in a disguised changeling to rescue the creature. Thus gaining its trust, the changeling will begin to deepen the relationship and feed on its love. Usually multiple changelings take turns playing the role and feeding, thus speeding up the process of transforming the creature into a husk.
>> No. 106094
Oh yeah, another thing. The main order the Princess gives to Mirage is to be an active counter-changling,

To hunt them and keep her kingdom safe from them, because it takes a changeling to reveal a changeling. Maybe we could have a confrontation over this betrayal?

Also, I decided that her full name is "Silhouette Mirage", after a videogame I love. She mainly goes by "Mirage" or "Mira" (sounds like Mirror...Mira Mira on your floor, in the form of whom you adore), but she avoids telling anypony her first name because she hates the thought of being nicknamed "Silly"

Here is the page where the GM is working on the custom changling class. If you have any further ideas I'd love to hear them.

taking a short break from bronycon prints to philosophize about a possible third changeling hive. don't take any of this as final concept.

The Honeycomb Hive is known to prefer hot and humid rain forests. In contrast to other hives they don't necessarily build their lair underground, but may simply hollow out trees. They are less actively aggressive than other hives (of which the Chrysalis Hive is the most aggressive) and more seldom venture outside their designated area. Their favourite method of trapping creatures is to disguise themselves as dancing females and to lure males into their traps. Those are especially sticky since the hive has an affinity for sweet nectar - and blood. They usually wait for their target to weaken inside the trap, so they can more easily apply hypnosis spells. If they are not outside dancing and creature walks into a trap all by its own, it may take a worker weeks to notice it, which usually leaves a lot of creatures to die in the humid heat.

Nopony has seen their queen yet, but she is said to be rather beautiful - for a changeling.

Was trying to see if it's possible to make a dragon-pony hybrid that doesn't look like a bag of flank and/or mary-sue-ish.

I'm rather satisfied actually, though I'm totally undecided on how to handle the scales/hair, if it's like soft scales or part hair, part scales, etc. etc.
>> No. 107503

>> No. 107540
File 133868934205.jpg - (96.83KB , 1016x600 , draconicorn2.jpg )
i was mostly thinking about the scales/hair on top of her head.

reactions are pretty mixed so far...all the more reason for me to experiment.

i decided to give her luna's nightguard's ears this time. for all we know those are the canon hybrids...wouldn't THAT be fun?

since i can't come up with anything else at the moment, i'll go with there being hair only on top of the head which goes into spikes on the neck. as for body hair in general, i imagined it being more coarse and wiry than on normal ponies, more akin to pig bristles.

i like working within the constraints of the show, to see what COULD work in it. furthermore i'm trying to find a true mix between pony and dragon features - not an easy feat. that means it can't be too complicated, but also not too simplistic. it should make sense both in the show and outside of it, at least somewhat. (ignoring the fact that mammals and lizards, if dragons are in fact lizards, can't mate)
>> No. 107546
The forelock and neck spikes work pretty well: the ear makes a convenient transition point. Looks good, too

The body shape is interesting, it's a nice blend of pony and dragon. I like how you used the body length to leg height proportions of a pony, but the torso thickness of a dragon. The combination of dragon claws and pony legs fit together well.

thank you! working within the constrictions of the show is more fun to me because it forces me to think. anypony can just throw together something that looks "cool". :)

i've been asked about wings and horns. through some trial and error i've come to the conclusion that it looks better if they aren't overly prominent. the pony side is stronger so to speak. it also lead me to the headcanon that nature itself kinda disapproves of the union. see, dragons have horns, wings, scales and spikes to defend themselves with, pegasi have wings, unicorns have magic horns. but if you mix the two, all of those survival instruments become toot. draconies (i think i'll call them that from now on) have vestigial wings that they cannot fly with, and horns that aren't really made for intimidation or battle. they have wiry hair instead of scales, and only small spikes that admittedly protect their neck sufficiently though. they are smarter than your average dragon, but their inherently more ferocious nature prevents them from stepping up the social ladder in pony society, though it is the one that accepts it more. their existence is highly frowned upon by everypony.

and here's the fun part, for me personally - i feel like i managed to capture that. i look at these hybrids and go "these shouldn't exist". they feel wrong, for all the right reasons.
>> No. 107611

I rather like the look of the horns on the yellow one. Just the right mix of cute and probably-shouldn't-touch-that.
>> No. 107614
Fun fact about horns: true horns are living bone with a layer of keratin, while deer antlers are dead bone and keratin, rhinoceroses' horns are just keratin... makes me wonder if the composition of a horn may affect a creature's aptitude with magic.

Just thought I'd throw it out there... all the biology notes got me thinking. :3

Neat stuff, by the way. Their social standing as riffraff/ne'er-do-wells/etc. just sorta fits their generalized physiology.

>thank you! working within the constrictions of the show is more fun to me because it forces me to think.
I go through that with character designs. I don't like using secondary coat colours (for the muzzle or lower leg) because you never see that in the show.

i've gotten some great name suggestions. while i REALLY like tourmaline, and amethyst is so FITTING, both of those don't sound like names that anypony would use on the show. i mean can you really imagine rarity hissing "AMETHYST, what are you DOING?". i can't. but THAT i can imagine. it sounds kinda prissy too, which is perfect for rarity. i can even hear spike saying it, affectionately. so i think i'll go with lavender.

while i still think about that, here's the offspring of a different couple. whether she exists in the same continuity as lavender i do not know yet.

meet sunflower.

edit: hmm, direct linking doesn't seem to work.
oh well. these are her parents.

Amethyst actually sounds like a name Rarity would choose for a cat.

So, yes, I can imagine her saying that.

Draconies are mostly herbivores, but they won't reject the occasional fish or fowl. From their dragon parent they seem to have inherited a certain affinity for food rich in minerals and stuff that makes a nice crunching noise. (Like gemstones for dragons)

If you want to go grimdark, that can be bones too.

I love this kind of impressionistic rendering style, by the way. The rendering gives it a waxy surface.

The value isn't constant over the whole figure (eg. the light areas on the forelegs aren't as bright as the light areas on the top of the head), that's awesome. It improves the readability of the image, gives it focus, and really adds to the sense of volume.

I've mentioned that I like your rendering, haven't I? Because I do. :3

Hmm. I've never tried drawing crystals before, but that looks really close. Maybe if the crystals were more opaque and the lines were less opaque it might look more crystal-like?

Once or twice a year, the queen will really gorge herself on love to prepare for birthing more changelings. During this time, she is very vulnerable.

No-one knows how long changelings live, but at some point in her life the queen will give birth to a new queen. A few workers will quickly move her to a new hive location, as queens are very territorial.

In contrast to normal changelings, the new queen is only half-grown when she emerges from her cocoon. This enables her to gather experience while she grows. Other changelings emerge fully grown because they only need to do as their queen tells them and posses basic instincts that were passed on to them from her.

To see if a new queen is fit to rule, she must travel into a village and suck a pony or other creature dry of its love to the point of turning it into a husk. Upon return to the hive, she will have gathered experience and knowledge of tactics that will help the hive to survive. The changelings from the original mother hive are now hers and will often undergo physical changes to reflect that. (usually signaled by a change of colour)

If she fails her task, the changelings from the mother hive will abandon the young queen, and she must either perish or fight the odds alone until she can start a hive herself.

So is Velvet semi-drunk, or were you semi-drunk when you drew her?
>> No. 108959

>> No. 108960
that reminds me, gonna copypaste some things that i answered without pictures on tumblr.

no mating occurs. the queen is completely autonomous and could in theory start a new hive from scratch, though she’d need to suck at least one pony dry of its love (thereby also providing a first husk/worker for herself).
“sucked dry” means that at some point they have turned into husks that live in a constantly hypnotized state and will only serve the queen. their kind of love doesn’t provide nourishment to the changelings.
purely physical love doesn't sustain them. the mental aspect is more important. hormones and stuff. no hatesex for sustenance.
The queen is the only real female, the others asexual.
If you ask me, the Chrysalis Hive has established itself as the most ruthless and aggressive, thus making Chrysalis herself queen of all queens. The others begrudgingly pay her respect, though sometimes a queen will try to infiltrate her hive and usurp her. It usually fails because while changelings can imitate the look of other changelings, their pheromones (or smell) will betray them eventually.
Incidentally, each hive has their own distinctive way of “building”. Compare the cocoon Celestia was in to the more droopy and sloppy cocoon the Miasma hive uses. Speaks of military discipline, imo.

Somehow, I can't help but think the shape of the skirt matches the shape of her bangs. Similar contours.

The only thing that doesn't seem "Twilight" about the outfit is how short the skirt is. That's probably my head-fanon-canon talking. :3

Very nicely done pose, by the way. The shoulder and arm give a nice impression of the weight being put on it.

In the part of her hair that comes down around her shoulders, the streak is up high. In the show, the notch in Twilight's mane is about jaw level, and the streak is down below. This only matters if you care about show accuracy, but I thought I'd mention it.

so the pose is pretty stupid, but this is basically a concept of what "my" anthroshy looks like, so i needed something that was rather neutral to show off her figure. basically i wanted to go for a sort of pixie-like figure, very thing and fragile, "grasheful", y'know. no big boobs because she was a model. models are like coathangers. the clothing is her standard day-to-day outfit, sorta hippie style.

The fabric of the jeans is great. The lines for the folds and creases are fluid and casual, but give a really nice impression of the material.

The sweater mostly clings to her, like it's painted on. It's open in front so there's no reason it shouldn't hang loose a bit.

Her head is really round, almost spherical. This is kind of a stylistic thing, I suppose, but it does make the character seem a little... erf, I dunno how to put it. Less organic? It has less visual interest than an irregular shape would have, at least.

Anyway, hope some of this makes any kind of sense. Awesome as ever, it's neat seeing an artist playing/experimenting/developing something. :3

thank you! hm, i actually thought the cardigan hangs pretty loose already. otherwise i'm just gonna go and say the material is a little tighter knit ;D
i usually try to make the heads pretty round, but sometimes they appear less so. but i agree that it appears a bit weird in this one. i think it's because the ears are higher up/smaller than usual.
>implying horses have pubic hair ;D

so…trixie. normally i really dislike trixie. probably even more because of her raging fanbase. but today i had an epiphany. i noticed that i dislike her a lot less if i see her as a pure villain. if i leave out any thoughts of her as a person, her motivations, any deeper notions that could elevate her to something resembling a protagonist and any equal of the main 6. in one word, if i leave out all the maudlin crap and just see her as the thing she is: a fun, hammy villain who’s highest goal is being in the spotlight just because.

with all the fanon material floating around that’s more difficult than you would think. i’m still reserved about her and probably won’t draw her too often, simply because i don’t think she’s that interesting. but for now, let’s go with this.

as usual i’m not 100% sure about her outfit, but what i know is that i wanted her to wear a corset, and have huge fake boobs. because let’s face it, she’s all about appearing better than she is. she probably tries extra hard to appear sexy because that gets her more attention.

oh, and now i’ve found one thing that’s worse to draw than trixie herself.

her damn hat.

You know, the outfit has kind of a Gypsy look to it that suits her perfectly. Sultry, shameless, a hint of the exotic... perfect for bamboozling the locals, but durable enough for travel. Sporty, yet practical.

Applejack has more outfits than Rarity... Something ain't right there.

ANYWAY, seems like different clothing for different situations, top mid and right for colder weather, bottom three for warmer. AJ seems to like to show off her abs, thought I don't mean to make that sound like a bad thing.

To be honest, I don't really like the lower left design at all. the bandanna also seems a bit bulky compared to the top and suspenders

I'll agree with you on the top middle one, it seems to fit AJ's sensibilities.

rainbow dash is rather petite overall. her strength is more focused on the upper body, especially her wings, in contrast to applejack's leg strength. her overall appearance and outfit in the upper row are heavily inspired by this woman: . despite everything, i usually see her as girlier than applejack. note that her arms are usually a bit thinner because she's flexing them in these pictures.

You, sir, are an artist to be reckoned with. That pratfall is priceless, and the hand in frame 3 really sells Trixie's reaction.

I think the only thing that detracts from the comic is that Trixie's arms seem completely inflexible. The copy-paste'ing isn't to obtrusive for the most part, but that one thing did stick out to me.

Fat Trixie looks great... the rounded cheeks and double chin are a nice touch. I can't believe she didn't pop a button or two around the waist though.

I don't suppose you'd do Big Mac as Guts Man. >:3

The curve of her thighs and belly, plus with the knees-together pose, give the impression that she has wide, curvy hips... not exactly childlike.

The head-to-body proportions and the shape of her upper torso do have a distinctly childlike look, tho. I like the left-most outfit, the knit sweater is cute.

(...And for some reason, now I'm picturing Scootaloo in a sailors rig ( )... no idea why. Weird.)

By the way: I love how you handle costumes and garments. Your style has a bit of a fashion illustration feel to it... or so it seems to me, at least.

>i was trying to go for pudgy belly with a bit of hip fat.
I kinda figured it was something that. Interesting fact about belly fat: it's stored internally in with all the organs. This means that it sits within the "bowl" of the hips, so even obese people will have a visible crease that follows the illiac crest (as per Trixie in the last panel of >>114105).

For a moderately pudgy look, the fat is almost all abdominal. So, the belly protrudes somewhat, but the obliques and upper thighs remain relatively lean.

One of the reasons SB doesn't look quite right, I think, is that the arc where the inner thighs meet the body looks like the underside of a roll of fat, which would normally form somewhat above the groin. This also lengthens her torso, because the belly seems to come down much further than it ought to (pudge sits mainly around the belly button, higher up).

Anyway! I talk too much. Variety in body shapes is quite an elaborate subject so there's no end of stuff to dither over, and subtle distinctions can completely change the impression a figure makes... hope this helps some.

mm, i see what you mean. i'd probably have to add an additional crease above the crotch, though personally i was thinking a very tight belly that seamlessly goes into the abdomen...kinda like a pregnant woman's belly. might be because i'm thinking of a child putting its hands behind its head, thus stretching the belly...quite a typical pose for them.

i felt like inventing a character with a haircut similar to velvet, a figure similar to rarity, a disposition similar to pinkie pie, and the ability to look good in pretty much any outfit and colour. was quite tricky to figure out an appropriate coloursheme, i suppose it’s kinda “human”. her cutie mark is a smiling sun because…she has a sunny disposition and is warm and welcoming? i dunno, it’s the best i could come up with. i’m a bit unsure about her profession yet, but i’m thinking she’s probably a model. gives me an excuse to draw her in various outfits and the most random situations, because i can always say it’s a photoshoot. yes…i like that.

I used to go to a weekly nude model drawing session, and one of the models got pregnant. We got to draw her at a variety of stages, it was epic. Very different looking than simple fat. Still have the drawings somewhere.

>she has a sunny disposition and is warm and welcoming?
>i’m a bit unsure about her profession yet, but i’m thinking she’s probably a model.
How about concierge for a resort hotel? Requires a sunny, warm, welcoming disposition as well as business savvy and professionalism, not to mention a wardrobe for everything from business meetings to upscale social functions to semi-casual interaction with the patrons.

Ooh, I bet you'll like this part: "In upscale establishments, a concierge is often expected to "achieve the impossible", dealing with any request a guest may have, no matter how strange, relying on an extensive list of contacts with local merchants and service providers." Random situations galore!

That is looking better. The line for the belly could be lighter, but it looks great in terms of shape. The hip has a nice impression of anatomy, though the assortment of lines is a little cluttered looking. The bumps and corners could be smoothed out a little, maybe.

The sundress is adorable, but the overalls definitely seem more appropriate for Apple Bloom. On the other hoof, the sundress looks exactly like the sort of thing Granny Smith would force AB wear, so that works too. :3

You know, every now and then I'll make a comment that seems really lame, or like I'm stating something painfully obvious, and then the artist goes "that's exactly what I was going for!" You never know what's going to hit right on the mark. :3

I just noticed... her bangs look remarkably similar to Velvet's: straight across the forehead, like a shorter and rounded version of Twilight's. They obviously have different hair colour, but shape is more significant than colour when it comes to character recognition. The similarity in shape may end up trumping the difference in colour, obvious as it is, and make it easy to confuse the two of them.

I like the wavy-curly look to her mane, tho. Kinda reminds me of Diamond Tiara's, very classy.

Yeah, I stumbled on the definition as I was doing research for my fantasy comic-project-thing, which draws mainly from ancient greek and roman mythology and culture. Then I was all like, "hey, waittaminnit..." :3

Also: Velvet's expression in that last frame of today's update... priceless. No doubt related to the last panel of the update from three weeks ago..? :3

Also also: I like your use of silent frames. Far too many comic artists out there lack the resolve to draw a panel without words, but it can add so much impact (dramatic or comedic). Mad props.

One observation, though... your panels often have a lot of empty space in them. When there's one or two characters, an ask box, and some dialog, everything fits nicely in the frame, but there's usually less than that, and the panel seem kinda empty. Sometimes, the sense open space and distant view can add weight to the scene, but the unvarying camera shots and frame composition can get a little monotonous.

Well... it kind of depends. When the camera is pulled back, it can add a sense of alienation because it firmly establishes how isolated the character feels. It can also make a character appear modest, meek, or ashamed: a lone character in a big empty space looks[/i[ tiny, mirroring how the character [i]feels tiny.

The camera shot can do other things too. Close in shots add intensity to emotions, whether they're happy, sad, or angry. A more subtle use is to pull in close when a character is considering something... contemplation isn't a very dramatic facial expression, but pulling can establish that whatever is being considered is a very weighty matter indeed.

This is one of my favourite concepts to play with: the camera as a character. If you can think about how a person would behave in a situation, . Low and high angle shots are the literal version of metaphorically "looking down on" or "looking up to" someone, and have the same emotional impact.

The camera doesn't have to be an actual character in the scene or anything. it's just that the camera can convey many of the same things that character behaviour does. So, for example, a shot of Strap as he's being embarrassed: the distant camera makes Strap look pathetic, but the camera isn't actually the viewpoint of any other characters in the scene. It's not showing how Glyph or Velvet is looking at Strap, it's showing the humiliation that Strap is feeling.

There's a number of panels where this works to your benefit, especially in shots of Strap as he's being humiliated by Glyph, then later when Strap is feeling guilty for giving Glyph a dressing down. The thing is, isolation or modesty won't always be the appropriate impression for the situation.

Generally, when I need to frame a shot, I'll draw a thumbnail version and sketch in panel borders after. Only takes a minute or so, and lets me visualize things. I also helps if I start with a horizontal or vertical division, and keep all the dialog on one side, and make sure to fill the other side comfortably with visuals (My composition isn't as good as I would like, tho).

I'm rambling tho... back to the sketchbook for me.

woulda been piss boring without the perspective)
i don't give them much active thought, or if i do (like right now), i dare say i chose most shots for their clarity, and keeping it kinda looking like a video diary. i dunno, i guess i just don't feel like adding "fancy" camera shots to the ask blog, keeping it more subtle and quiet most of the time. argh, now i'm rambling too...i don't know how to properly express it.

> things like that probably happen subconsciously to me.
Oh, yeah... lots of stuff like that is subconscious.

Here's one: When you have three people in a room, if a conversation between two of them becomes heated or intense, the third will step in to diffuse the situation. We do this automatically by instinct, it's very deeply ingrained behavior.

When there's only two people present, however, the conversation is free to continue intensifying, and things can reach dramatic proportions.... which is exactly why writers often often put pairs of characters in isolated situations: it lets the drama fire up. If there's a third character in the scene who doesn't intervene, it seems really bizarre to the audience. For some reason that you can't quite put your finger on.

That's basically what happened when Velvet left the room to make coffee. Strap and Glyph's conversation got heated, and as soon as Velvet came back the situation diffused.

>keeping it more subtle and quiet most of the time.
I like that about Ask-Velvet, actually. I think of intensity as spice, to be used sparingly. The day-to-day events? That's where the meat of the story is.

The thing I like about using camera shots is that it can bump up the intensity without becoming gratuitous. A closer camera can add weight to a mild or moderate expression, so the character's face doesn't need to be dialed up to eleven. It helps keep things low key.

Man, this is awesome for all kinds of reasons... I love the hands.

Wait, wait, wait... this is a universe where pegasi, part horse, part bird, can fly despite having 1/3rd the necessary wingspan and a tenth the required muscle mass... where gryphons, manticores, and basalisks exist (all of which fit the definition of a chimera)... where horned horses can traverse distances instantaneously (aka: teleport, aka "winking' in MLP jargon)... where the power of buckin' friendship of all things is a tangible force that can be harnessed for physically impossible magical feats... and this is what that seems implausible to you?

musings about adult anthro sweetie belle. i drew all the outfits on the same body base, but actually the first two would have to be from when she’s still a teenager and very much influenced (and protected) by rarity (who wants her to be a “proper lady”). then you’d have prom, college and international pop star.
rarity’s and sweetie’s mom seems pretty hip heavy (which is where rarity got her curves from), but i thought it’d be funny to have sweetie even more endowed in the upper area, but less so in the hips than her sister.

While it is generally a very bad idea to venture into the Everfree Forest at night, one should take extra care to stay away from the ancient castle of the royal pony sisters.

i figure that when the original crystal princess or queen was alive there were some royal guards around, but when sombra came to power he eventually got rid of them. (also, he apparently tailored their armor to fit his style better ;) )

for the record, i do actually think that the crystal ponies are their own race without unicorns or pegasi, but for this comic, i need them. and on the other hand, why would ONE of them be a unicorn that rises to power, and no-one else? except if sombra came over and was like "this kingdom is ripe for ruling". hmm. maybe a mixture of both...yes.

so after some thinking (and some asks), i've come to the conclusion that, while an underwater hive is rather silly, a seaside hive might actually be cool.

so here's queen myxine and her changelings. they live in hollowed out caves along the shore and eat seafood to produce their building material (which might resemble corals). usually they'll either play the drowning to be saved, or save the drowning. sometimes they build sharp spires underwater and try to navigate ships into them. sometimes they're lazy and just simulate a shark attack by swimming with their horn looking up over the water like a shark fin.

they are a pretty small hive as ponies aren't all that big on seafaring. overall they're pretty pragmatic and a direct contrast to the honeycomb hive's song and dance.

Because I've been getting this a lot lately, and it does actually bother me.
No, draconies aren't qilin/kirin.
No, any dragon/pony hybrid isn't kirin.
That's like saying any mix between man and bull is a Minotaur.
Qilin might be a mix between dragon and horse (although they are more often likened to deer, along with tiger, ox and fish), but they are not the result of a union between the two species.

Technically speaking, a "chimera" is any creature composed of parts from multiple animals (although the Chimera was a specific creature, any zoological hybrid can be called a chimera).

Nice rack, by the way.

...I'm talking about the antlers, of course.

Actually, all the little details are really nice: the cloven hooves, the fetlocks, the eyebrows. The slightly more realistic anatomy is nicely handled, too.

(Figured I'd do a proper write-up on these guys)

The Miasma Hive is probably the second largest of the known hives. It usually resides underneath or at the edges of big cities like Las Pegasus or Manehattan, modifying sewage systems and/or garbage dumps to their needs. They eat rotten food and the occasional carcass to produce their body liquids, which, in addition to their choice of living space, gives the whole hive a particularly rancid smell. Sometimes it even gets so bad that it's noticeable when a changeling has transformed himself into another creature.
Their Queen, Miasma herself, is a very vain and snobby person and tries to appear better than she is. She has two changelings follow her around with incense burners wherever she goes and douses herself in perfume as often as possible. One wonders what is worse, the rotten smell of the hive, or the overwhelming stench of sweet perfume contrasting with it.
Although trying to appear noble and sophisticated, the queen has a very bad temper and can turn from sweet to sour in mere seconds.*
(She also has very bad table manners (and taste), and won't even stop short of literally rolling around in her food. It's not helped by the fact that she has holes in her cheeks so you can see her chewing even if she has her mouth closed)
The hive's manner of gathering victims isn't very sophisticated, ranging from cries of help from out of a gully to simply waiting for someone to get stuck in their secretions while drunkenly wandering about at night.

*Think Prof. Ratigan from "The Great Mouse Detective".

Yeah, that's how I imagined.

It really reminds me of the movie 'The Mummy' if you've seen it; there's a part where a mummy is regenerating his flesh and at a certain stage he has a hole in his cheek. A beetle crawls in and he eats it, heh.
