Something I noticed about Pharynx’s design... · 10:11pm Apr 26th, 2020

First, look at his old form.

You see that large, jagged streak on Pharynx’s carapace? (Aka his shell?) It’s that really dark purple streak located on the lower half of the shell.

Now look at his reformed form.

He still has a similar jagged streak on his carapace, except it’s flipped vertically. It’s not exactly the same shape as the old one, but it’s there.

Huh.

I never noticed that... cool!

Yeah, whoever designs the characters in cartoons can be pretty clever.

I wonder if that's supposed to represent something. I'd call it a purple wave, so seeing it in reverse could be representative about him still being the same, but going in a new direction?

Huh. I never realized that before. Makes you wonder if Ocellus' spots were there when she was unreformed.

Hm...

I can’t tell if those are actually spots on her carapace, or if they’re just highlights.

Wouldn't highlights be less obvious? And more of just a lighter/darker shade on the outside of her carapace?

And there are markings on Thorax's shell too...

Yeah, but they aren't on his original form. Still, it's cool there was a resemblance in Pharynx's two forms. Not just the stripe, the red frill and tail obviously became his antlers and dragonfly tail.

5250805
Yeah, because his brother had like a mostly teal and black color scheme.

5250806
Yeah, I think it was to help him blend in in the flashback scene of the Canterlot Invasion in "To Change a Changeling"

But also for viewers to distinguish him from others.

Huh. that looks awesome!

5250828
It is! I wonder if anyone else already noticed.

5250829
Maybe a few detail purists noticed it.

5250836
Yeah, I actually really like Pharynx.

5250841
Same. I really liked his story in the episode and how he was a rouge changeling.

Hey, neat. I never noticed that before!
