Princess Cadance by CoffeeCupPup Princess Cadance by CoffeeCupPup
Gotta say, I think she's my favorite princess from MLP ^^ (possibly my favorite pony? not sure!)
Her personality, and her happy colors <3

I haven't used my pastels in years, but wanted to try something other than digital art for Ipun's mini contest (MLP MINI CONTEST! LAST DAY!)
SO I dug out my pastels and some textured paper I had and did this! It was definitely fun, and I'm definitely gonna try doing this again!
Gotta say though, when I first started drawing this I almost gave up because it was shapeless and didn't look like it was going anywhere--afterall, I more or less "forgot" how to use pastels. Eventually the details pulled things together though, and I'm really really happy with how it turned out!

The actual drawing is 8.5x11 inches

Princess Cadance belongs to Hasbro~
This is just fanart!

For some strange reason, I can't stop imagining what Cadence would look like wearing this: img1.etsystatic.com/000/0/5426…

My pleasure.

Perhaps you love her because she is a mom now?

Haha ah, I'm not sure what you mean by that but that's not the reason. I liked her as a character when she was first introduced :)

I meant nothing. Just another reason to love her more.

Yeah. I always found Cadance to be beautiful and kind. Twilight has a wonderful sister-in-law.

I got her Berrows book to read. But that cover of Friends Forever #30 was cruel about her.

Art as beautiful as the Princess herself. 

I'd like to see more pastel ponies drawn in pastels. You did a wonderful job, especially the eyes-great job making them glossy.
