Brave New Hive by XeviousGreenII Brave New Hive by XeviousGreenII
I wanted to do some kind of bigger drawing again based on the final episodes of the season. From what I've seen, the new design of changelings (especially Thorax') has been a bit divisive. Personally I'm okay with them, but that's not to say it could look better with one colour less or some other tweaks. Because this took so long to make, the next page of my comic series won't be ready until next week.

Here's how it looked (almost) without colours:

I'm extremely annoyed they haven't expanded on Thorax becoming the new king

I just pray that there are still some Evil Changelings out there that are still loyal to Chrysalis despite their hunger, I mean not every character on in this franchise can NOT be Evil!

Not all the changelings were in the hive when the change happened. I think that it is safe to say that Crissi still has a loyal army.

Locations have nothing to do with it, the Changelings realized that Sharing Love causes the Change & Ends their Love-Lust, so the Real Test would be if the Changelings value Loyalty to their Queen more than Satisfying their Hunger, so that would be the only way there could still be Evil Changelings who choose to follow Chrysalis, and I hope there are, because that way we could have the material needed for a Changeling Civil War.

I still think that location has something to do with the change because it is unlikely that news of this new discovery would spread that quickly to the other changelings. I mean, who knows how far away the changeling empire is from the rest of civilization?! Crissi will likely make it to them first. She could lie about negative effects of the transformation and keep them longer.

I still have my doubts about locations factoring in, but suppose that these new transformations really do have some negative side effects, like an alteration of their abilities, like they gain New Powers, but at the cost of losing some of their Old Powers, because I have noticed that some of the Good Changelings have Bigger Horns, some have Smaller Horns, and some have No Horns at all, does that mean that some of them Can't use Unicorn-like Magic? And as suggested by the IDW Comics revealing of Chrysalis's Origins(be they Canonical or Not), the Evil Changelings may be Undead, meaning that they are neither truly Dead or Alive so they may very well be Immortal, and can Never Die even if someone tries to Kill them, but if the Good Changelings' transformation caused them to become Fully Alive, that might mean that they are now Mortals that are susceptible to Death, or what if the Changelings actually need their Queen for something Super Important or else something Tragic will happen to them be they Good or Evil? Well whatever the reason there Must be something that makes some of the changelings wish to remain evil & serve Chrysalis.

He'll probably mate with another female changeling in his hive or another hive who might share in his belief in giving love freely; this is assuming there are other changeling hives out there in Equestria
