Okay, so having ponies mid-dance with a swooning, romantic dip is not easy to do.  Lesson learned.  But still, it's a colorful and sweet enough image to help celebrate Cadance and Shining Armor for Hearts and Hooves day, so up it goes!

I still enjoy these two and would really like to see them fleshed out more.  Are they keeping the romance alive now that they have a foal?  Between parenthood, running an empire and Changeling attacks, are they getting enough rest?  Will Shining get some time off to join in on Guy's Night in Ponyville?  How are things going with the Yaks on their northern border?  How are the Crystal Ponies doing in adjusting to the modern world?  Honestly, I'd love to just have some family time with these royals, Twilight, Spike and their parents included.  They do all need to get together without a crisis occurring sometime.

I'm not so fond that they made Shining so goofy. Manning an empire is hard work and he used to be part of the royal guard so I would imagine he would be a fairly serious character. Not all the time of course but I've rarely seen him be powerful or intimidating.

Awesome work. I love the pose and their expressions.

Well, apparently by G.M. Berrows's Cadance book, Cadance can get short visions of the future.

This looks great, at first I thought they were doing a tango, but then she would have a rose in her teeth.

Then I realized they are horses and probably ate the rose haha.

Hah. To be honest I thought they were having sex at first, it's a shame they don't, but it's a great piece of art anyway.

Yep, we desperately need more episodes about other characters than just the Mane Six, Spike, Discord, Starlight and the CMC. It's one of the reasons why I loved Slice of Life so much. I just hope background ponies and secondary characters will get more spotlight before the show gets cancelled. We still don't even have a Celestia episode!

Anyway, great job with the picture, it looks amazing. I hope you had a good Valentine's Day!

I agree, having a glimpse into a normal-as-can-be day in the life of this couple would make for an entertaining episode, me thinks. Nice piece for Hearts and Hooves day =)
