I really ought to draw Cadance sometime...
In the case of Cadance, that nature comes out as her being more relatable and outspoken than Celestia and Luna are, as well as being a little "frisky" - mostly following in the Trollestia tradition. In other words, there's a dash of spice under that sugar. You get what I'm sayin'?
There are two things I'd like to see done with Cadance...one is flashbacks to the origin story in CHS, the other is watching her spend some downtime with her siblings. Both of them, if only to establish that Spike actually has a family. He helped save her kingdom, she saved his life, yet they've exchanged fewer words (none) than Spike and Celestia (six).
Guess the mystery background to her, is what makes her unique. Guess I cannot argue with that.
She's so very... PINK.
According to the G.M. Berrow book she grew up in a tiny village in the hicks and had to confront an evil witch as a filly to bring love into her heart and remove a curse from her village. She then grew a horn and moved to C-lot. Good read, even for an adult. Recommended.
oh, and one more thing... I am a fan and I like this. She might seem lifeless in here but that is more the color than anything else.
still, she looks lovely to look at.
I suppose the portraits would look cool if they were used somewhere, in a game or as an illustration to text. Otherwise they look bland and lifeless to me.
