[EDIT]: god, you guys. Over 300 favorites?!? :faint: <333 I love you all!
Special thanks to the people who commented, and the two who gave me some great constructive criticism!!
Oh, and also a big thank-you to those who submitted this piece to your groups!

I greatly appreciate the positive feedback on this picture, it's very encouraging x3 I will definitely be putting a lot more effort into my pieces from now on, backgrounds and all!


This day was going to be perfect.
The kind of day of which I dreamed since I was small.
But instead of having cake
With all my friends to celebrate,
My wedding bells, they may not ring for me at all.


Oh god, this took FOREVER, but I'm extremely proud of it. First of all, the background...the best background I've ever drawn. <33 I also experimented a lot with the hair, trying to make it more realistic...what do you think? :la:

So yeah, a picture of Cadance. I've been wanting to draw this since I saw the episode, I love love LOVE her character X3

Critique is welcome and very appreciated <3
I already know that next time I definitely want to improve choice of pose (this one seems a bit bland, I dunno).

Great pic!

Very nice! I love all the detail of her fur and hair, and that winding river improves the composition. But I think it would have been better if you had made the background bigger than Cadence, and Cadence off-center and smaller, maybe in a different pose (I see you've thought about that already ;P), which might make her seem more in despair. Either way, great work! :la: Oh and awesome lighting, besides Cadence's horn, it's sort of interesting how the river gives off an ambiance, as seen in the background.

Officially, in the animation, when she was imprisoned for a long time, her tiara was lost.

Perhaps she still had it at this point. (Early imprisonment)

Great job with the hair! Mane textures can be kind of crazy, but you did very well :D

:iconyodaplz::iconsaysplz:Very good. Very good.

Even thought I had some problems with the finale, mostly from the "This Day Aria" song and the baddies appearing out of nowhere, I will admit that Cadance and Shining Armor were pretty good. :)

She looks so beatiful in this picture, even with all of her scrapes and sadness. <3

Despite how worn she looks, it hasn't marred her beauty one bit.
