At first I was rather ambivalent toward Princess Cadence.  She was an alicorn that felt tacked on to whole Equestrian Royal constellation. A character that existed entirely to sell toys and nothing else. However over time the character has grown on me.

    This is the next in my anthro Equestria series of study drawings. Looks like Shining Armor's evening reading is going to be interrupted for awhile. Shinning Armor (Worried) mlp season 6  MLP Princess Cadence (Smug) Plz

    This piece will be going up for sale on the SmudgeMarks & EngelWerks ESHOP in a few days along with older and new work. Art, comics, videos, it's all there!

 I hope you like what you see. Please help make more art like this possible by supporting me at Patreon Patreon Icon

Wasn't there an entire comic based on Cadence having a "what's the point of me?" crisis?

Indeed, Friends Forever No. 30.

I wasn't too keen on Cadence either when she made her first appearance, but I came around to her.  The fact that she was Twilight's foalsitter reminded me of one of my neighbors who used to watch me when I was younger.  And she's the Princess of Love, so you can't go wrong there.  Better saddle up, Shining.

Ultimately, the whole point of the show is to sell toys. Everything else is a bonus. :)

But yeah, Cady and Shiny have been really good additions to the show and the setting as a whole.

Oh I am quite aware of how the industry works. I have done pre-production work for the industry. Still the staff at DHX have done a good job of integrating her into the world.

Yep! She wants that comic book. He's reread that thing over and over, and now she wants a chance to read it herself.

Shiny's mind: "She wants something... but we have plenty ice cream on the fridge..."

Give him time, he'll put two and two together.

Hmm.
Based on other comments, I have to wonder how Cadence and Gilda would interact.

They would make an interesting odd couple.
